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.
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. Staff members will work to ensure each piece of equipment as well as any high-touch points (door handles, railings, etc.) are sanitized frequently. Additionally, all athletes and staff will be required to sanitize their hands before and after class.
Illness Policy – All athletes and staff will be expected to follow our updated illness policy which can be viewed here.
Face Masks – Per state regulations, all individuals ages 5 and older must wear a mask at all time in the building, including during workouts.
Spectating: All families, regardless of student age, may now have one spectator in the building. Please note this is one spectator per family, not per gymnast. We also ask that any additional people (including siblings not attending classes, grandparents, etc.) remain outside the building. If your athlete is in a Rollie Pollies (parent participation) class, the adult attending the class with the gymnast counts as the one spectator and additional parents or spectators are asked to remain outside of the building.
Seating is still limited. To best promote the continued health and safety of our members, we are currently recommending that if your athlete does not require spectators that you continue to drop-off/pick-up; however, we are excited to be able to extend spectating to more of our membership.
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 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.
Touchless Payment – We ask 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.
