Note: We will not be billing any member until they are able to return to classes.
As Washington County moves into its phased reopening, we at OGA are also able to slowly begin reopening. To ensure the safety of our athletes and staff, OGA’s phased reopening will be a slow and closely monitored process. The phases of OGA’s reopening are as follows:
Phase 1 (June 15th): Competitive Team Workouts and Summer Camps
Phase 2 (June 17th): Select All Star Classes
Phase 3 (TBD): Recreational Classes and increased All Star Classes
Phase 4 (TBD): Increased All Star Classes and activities including Indoor Park, Sensory Sunday, Birthday Parties, and Parent’s Night Out
During each phase of reopening, we will constantly be evaluating our processes and procedures to ensure best practices before moving on to our next phase. We will work diligently to uphold the restrictions and guidelines set forth by state and local government, as well as the recommendations given to us by the Oregon Health Authority, the CDC, and the WHO.
As we work through this phased reopening, some policy and procedural updates must be implemented. Please note the following:
Cleaning and Sanitization Procedures – In addition to our regular in-depth cleaning throughout the day and nightly janitorial services, we will be implementing even more cleaning and sanitization procedures within the gym. Equipment will be cleaned in-between classes and staff members will frequently sanitize high-touch points such as door handles, railings, etc. Additionally, all athletes will be required to sanitize their hands before and after class.
Employee Health Screenings – Employees will be required to undergo mandatory health screenings each day before starting their shift. This will include a temperature check and illness screening questions.
Face Masks – All adults entering the building are required to wear a face mask. Children over 12 must wear masks when not participating in gymnastics activities. Children under 12 are encouraged to wear masks when not participating in gymnastics activities.
Spectating – To help limit the number of individuals in our viewing area, we are highly encouraging all parents to refrain from spectating while their athlete is in class as long as it is safe to do so. Once their student is in class, parents are free to leave the facility as long as they have a contact number on file with our front desk and they are back by the end of their gymnast’s lesson. If adults do wish to spectate, we ask that only one spectator per athlete is in the building at a time.
Restrooms – Restrooms will be available for use; however, we ask that athletes change into their gymnastics attire and use the restroom before coming to gym.
Drinking Fountains – All drinking fountains will be closed for the time being, so we ask that all athletes bring a water bottle to class with them. Our touchless water bottle refill stations will still be available if your athlete needs more water.
Makeup Classes – Through August 31st, we will be halting the scheduling of makeup classes. Athletes will still be eligible to accrue makeup classes during this time, but they will only be able to be scheduled September 1st-December 31st, 2020. Any athlete who accrued makeup classes prior to our closure that were not able to be used will also be able to schedule their makeups September 1st-December 31st, 2020.
Touchless Payment – We strongly encourage all members to have a credit card on file with our front office to allow for touchless payment. You can input this information via our member portal on our website or with the front desk directly.
