Huron Valley Aikikai COVID Protocols and Plan

December, 2021 

Huron Valley Aikikai keeps close track of the status of COVID in our community. Below is a summary of our current thinking and potential timeframes associated with various stages of this process:

 

  • Current State  All of our instructors and members age 12 and up are now fully vaccinated and many of our younger kids have begun the vaccination process. The dojo has a  large roll-up door which we have modified to provide excellent ventilation even in the colder months and we continuously monitor CO2 levels in the training area to ensure good air exchange in the space.

  • IN LIGHT OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES PRESENTED BY THE CONTINUED THREAT OF THE DELTA VARIANT, FOR THE TIME BEING HURON VALLEY AIKIKAI WILL ONLY ALLOW FULLY VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS (OR THOSE WHO CAN DEMONSTRATE A LEGITMATE MEDICAL DISPENSATION) TO TRAIN IN-PERSON IN ANY OF OUR PROGRAMS. New members and visitors are kindly asked to be prepared to provide documentation of their vaccination status prior to training at HVA.

  • With the approval of vaccines for children aged 5-11, WE WILL BE REQUIRING FULL VACCINATION FOR PARTICIPATION IN OUR CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS beginning January 1, 2022.

  • ALL FULLY VACCINATED ADULT PARTICIPANTS ARE ENCOURAGED (THOUGH NOT REQUIRED) TO GET THEIR COVID 19 BOOSTER SHOT AND THE SEASONAL FLU VACCINE.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update this information as events allow and look forward to welcoming everyone back as fully and as soon as possible!
