Staff in common areas are to wear masks whenever near others and always at the Cafe. Coaching staff are to wear masks whenever within 6 feet of athletes. Coach may remove mask to project voice for instruction so long as they are 6 feet from others. Athletes are permitted to wear a mask when not impeding safety, but it is not required.
All staff are required to temperature check before the start of each shift. We ask that our families ensure they are checking for symptoms of COVID-19 before coming to the gym. If you are sick, please do not come to the gym!
In addition to our nightly sanitizing procedures coaches are required to “sani-in” and “sani-out” at each rotation. Not only this but equipment will be sanitized after each class hour to ensure maximum disinfecting. This is in addition to our standing FCDP protocols. View next section to learn more about FCDP.
Although it is not possible to always have social distance while participating in gymnastics, silks, and ninja classes, we are making efforts to limit contact when possible. Therefore, coaches are to reduce the amount of hands-on contact to only necessary contact for safety and instruction.
Drop and Go
Although families are welcome to stay and watch classes, we do encourage drop and go so to limit the amount of people in the building at any given time to help with social distancing. If staying in the building, please be mindful of social distancing and the Orange County mask mandate.
In order to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, when we are aware of a case that led to direct exposure, we will inform those families immediately. Direct exposure here is defined by the CDC as being within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more.

Facility Cleaning and Disinfecting Program
At Gymnastics USA we take preventing the spread of infectious diseases through proper sanitation very seriously. We therefore have established and maintain the Facility Cleaning and Disinfecting Program (FCDP) at our facility. This process involves preventive practices, active disinfecting, and compulsory cleaning of all areas within the facility. These measures are designed to ensure the lowest possibility of the spreading of infectious diseases by following CDC Guidelines while using EPA Registered Antimicrobial Products.

CLEANING AND DISINFECTING:
Removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
