Personally I find it reassuring to know firstly that we are doing all we can to maintain cleanliness and hygiene and secondly it provides me with further comfort to know that grassroots sports can continue.

Together we can get through this….

 

COVID 19 UPDATE

As I am sure you are aware the Premier has declared a State of Emergency in Victoria.

We wish to advise that in these unprecedented times BTB Martial Arts & Fitness Centre will continue to operate all classes as usual (unless we are instructed otherwise).

 

We will continue to monitor this and be guided by updates from the World Health Organisation and advise our members accordingly should anything change.

 

We can assure you that we are doing everything we possibly can to ensure our space is kept clean and sanitised.
– Good hygiene practices and cleanliness are paramount…

 

We must STRESS that if you are unwell with any cold or flu like symptoms you stay home from training.

 

If you have been travelling you are required to self quarantine for at least 14 days before returning to training.

 

Please understand that if you arrive for class unwell do not be offended when you are asked to go home (if you have been dropped off parents/guardians will be contacted to come and collect you)

 

Ways to avoid getting sick include:

 

Wash your hands
for at least 20 seconds with water and soap or use hand sanitiser.

 

Cover your cough
Use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. No tissue around? Cough or sneeze into the elbow of your sleeve to avoid spreading germs (not into your hands.)

 

Stay Home
If you are unwell (in any way, shape or form) or have any cold/flu like symptoms please stay home to avoid sharing your germs with others.

 

Wash your Gi regularly and clean all training equipment.

 

Do not wear your Gi to and from training – please allow yourself adequate time to change on arrival and departure.

 

Wear a jacket to and from training.

 

Footwear MUST be worn to the bathroom at all times (again, ensure you wash your hands.)

 

If, in the event of a lockdown we are looking into online training via ZOOM but will keep you fully informed of this (perhaps in the meantime if you could download this to your computer, ipad etc) this may expedite traffic.

 

*** PLEASE UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE THAT IF OUR INSTRUCTORS GET SICK CLASSES WILL BE CANCELLED ***

 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
