COVID-19 Mitigation Policies
We are taking the following actions to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread among our students and in our community:
- All Oshiro Dojo instructors & assistants are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
- Dojo doors will remain open during class, with industrial-strength blowers to circulating fresh air from outdoors.
- Classes for unvaccinated students are limited in size to allow for distance between students.
- Classes for unvaccinated students have the same students from week to week to reduce potential exposure.
- Classes for unvaccinated students will not include partner-contact activities.
- When assigning classes for unvaccinated students, priority is given to keeping households/siblings together.
- Classes are separated by 15 minutes to reduce contact between classes.
We require student to adhere to these policies:
- Masks are required in the dojo for students and caregivers.
- Students must clean their hands and feet with sanitizer (provided at the dojo entrance) before and after class.
- Students should be dropped off 5 minutes or less before class and picked up within 5 minutes after class.
- Locker room usage is limited to one household at a time.
- Students must bring their own water, there is no shared water cooler at the dojo.
- Caregivers may come in for dropoff and pickup, but we request that caregivers do not stay inside the dojo during class. Chairs are available for seating outside the dojo.
All policies are subject to change based on guidance from public health authorities. We thank you for your understanding and patience.
