COVID Precautions

 

At Flip City, we take Covid-19 very seriously.  The nature of our programs has been very fluid this year as we adjust protocols based on recommendations by the CDC and the Dane County Public Health department.

Masks

Masks are required for everyone ages 2+ who enter the building, regardless of vaccination status.

Parent Viewing

Space is limited.  Parents who wish to watch class inside should be fully vaccinated.  If not vaccinated please consider watching from outside the overhead door or dropping your child off for class.  Please avoid bringing additional spectators when possible, especially those who are unvaccinated.  All spectators ages 2+ must keep masks on in viewing areas, including the balcony.

Not Sharing is Caring

Gymnasts need to bring their own filled water bottles.  We are not using the water cooler.  Gymnasts may refill their bottles from the tap as needed.

Upon entering the building, students leave their shoes on a mat and place other belongings in a clean bin.  When leaving, they put the used bin in a dirty stack.  Bins are then disinfected by staff before being reused.

Parents who wish to watch class inside should be fully vaccinated.  If not vaccinated please consider watching from outside the overhead door or dropping your child off for class.  Please avoid bringing additional spectators, especially unvaccinated kids, when at all possible.

Ventilation & Filtration

We are utilizing an iWave-R "air purifier" in the gym space.  This system uses ionization to remove hydrogen molecules from pathogens, causing them to become inactive.

 

The overhead door is open whenever weather allows.
 

Disinfecting

Our staff disinfect mats and equipment frequently.  Older students disinfect items they used.

Hand sanitizer is provided throughout the space.

Competitions

We are only participating in virtual competitions during the 2020-2021 season.  Even with meets allowing just 1 spectator per gymnast, this still brings 70+ people into a space at one time.  While we love competing, we feel that the risk to ourselves, our gym families, and public health supersedes our personal desires to attend these large in-person events.
