Protocols are in alignment with the recommendations by the BC Post Secondary Return To Campus (RTC) guidelines. All families, pianists, staff and faculty are provided with information regarding self-assessment, how to use the BC Covid-19 Self Assessment Tool and/or call 8-1-1 for further advice.
Continued Prevention measures:
-Hand sanitizers in all studios and offices
-Hand sanitization stations at entry and exit
-Mask wearing for individuals aged 12 and up as per BC’s updated mask wearing policies
-Mask wearing for individuals aged 12 and below is no longer mandatory, but up to each individual’s circumstances in accordance with the Provincial Health Authorities most up-to-date recommendations
-Goh Ballet respects any individual’s choice to continue to wear a mask even if fully vaccinated
-No drop-in visitors allowed and outsiders permitted entry into the facility by appointment only
-Frequently touched surfaces in the facility (washroom fixtures, door knobs, counters) are cleaned frequently
-Frequently touched studio surfaces (barres, stereos, cubbies) are cleaned in between every class with hydrogen peroxide or other disinfecting cleaning agents
-All those entering the facility must sanitize hands upon entry and exit of the building.
-Anyone exhibiting signs of illness is required to stay home for a minimum of 2 days or until symptoms subside. If COVID-19 exposure is confirmed or suspected, individuals must call 8-1-1 to seek further guidance and obtain a test if deemed necessary. If a Covid-19 test is taken the individual must remain in isolation until results are returned. Any classes missed during quarantine are counted as missed, and Goh Ballet will consider, on a case-by-case basis, alternative options for learning if the student’s personal situation requires an isolation period of more than 2 weeks.
-Locker rooms are temporarily closed
Facilities have the following supporting signage:
-Proper handwashing technique in all washrooms
-Signage describing symptoms and reminders to self-assess prior to entering the facility
-Where necessary, occupancy limits of all studios, offices, and shared spaces
-Students are kept within their cohorts and do not mix. Classes are scheduled in a staggered manner so that no two cohorts are entering or exiting at the same time. Drop-off and pick-up times must be strictly observed, students are not allowed to linger in the building after their scheduled pick-up time.
-Queuing for class is outside of the building, there is no queuing inside the facility.
