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.
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 – Per state regulations, all individuals ages 5 and older must wear a mask at all time in the building, including during workouts.
Spectating – At this time, we are subject to capacity limits which means we must limit the number of spectators we allow. At this time, we are only able to accommodate one spectator for students enrolled in our Preschool Program (ages 5 and under). This will allow for help with getting younger students to and from class as well as with potty breaks. Additionally, trial students can have one spectator during their trial class. Please note that viewing is limited, and only one person will be allowed in at a time (this includes siblings, additional parents, grandparents, etc.)
If you are not comfortable with your athlete being in class without a spectator, or you know they need someone in the building for safety reasons (i.e. they need help using the restroom), please contact our front office to let us know and we can disenroll your student at this time and put them on a wait list for when spectating is allowed.
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.
Makeup classes – As we will have extremely limited availability, we will be pausing the scheduling of makeup classes. Athletes will still be eligible to accrue makeup classes during this time, and any makeups accrued from March 15th, 2020-present will also still be able to be used when we do reopen the scheduling of makeups. We will continually reevaluate this policy and will let you know when makeups can be scheduled.
