COVID-19

PRECAUTIONS

AT SECRET CIRCUS SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. 

We have always gone above and beyond to make sure our rigging was is above industry standard, our equipment is high quality and regularly inspected, our policies reflect our care for proper progression, and our coaches are well- trained and qualified.

But safety isn't just about inspections and using mats. We also care about your mental health and well being, as well as your concern about Covid-19. 

We have taken time to really think about the efforts we can take to make you (and our coaches) feel safe, while still getting back to in-person classes. We have spelled these all out in the News section in our "re-opening newsletter,"  so please go there to get a full, detailed look at what coming to our studio will look like. We will be updating these procedures as needed.

 

Here is an overview of the things we are doing to mitigate your risk:

1.

All clients will be required to wear a mask upon entry, and will be asked to wash hands at our designated hand washing station. Clients are instructed to leave personal items (aside from a notebook and water bottle) outside the studio. Temperature screenings are mandatory upon entry.  No fever over 99.9 will be admitted. If a client has had close contact with a person who is ill/cold/allergy or any symptoms of illness and must miss work or school due to illness we ask that that client does NOT come to class. 

2.

Clients will adhere to a strict social distancing policy of 6 feet away from each other at all times.  Hand sanitizer is in the space, and you will be required to use it before touching rosin or chalk bins. 

3.

Each student will have use an apparatus that will not be shared.  Apparatuses will be sanitized after each class and rested for 48 hours. 

4.

Space is limited to a maximum of 12 people at one time. This includes classes (4 max to each drop-in class, 5 students for Session classes. 1 coach to each class), a work-study will be cleaning, and a few coaches preparing for classes, cleaning rigging etc.  Most days there will be an average of 5-10 people in the space with current numbers. If a class has a higher capacity it is because there are no other classes in the space at the time.

5.

Silks/sling will be either washed or sprayed with Vital Oxide and then left to dry thoroughly. This is a disinfectant that kills Coronavirus and is safe for use on aerial fabrics. Trapeze ropes and aerial ropes will also be sprayed and left to dry before re-use or UV light sanitized.

6.

Milgo Plus disinfectant cleaner will be used on all mats and other surfaces that can be wiped down. Milgo Plus is a cleaner used for managing microbial activity on material and kills MRSA, Hepatitus C, Pseudomonas, Legionella, Human Coranavirus, SARS Associated Coronavirus, HIV-1 and many other microorganisms. UV Light sanitizer wands will be used on all surfaces that cannot be washed. 

7.

The floor, trapeze, ropes, hoops, slings, and all other surfaces will be cleaned with an industrial fogger between classes. Cleaner used:
