Huron Valley Aikikai COVID Protocols

July, 2022

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 along with many of our younger kids. 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 CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES, HURON VALLEY AIKIKAI STRONGLY ENCOURAGES ALL CLASS PARTICIPANTS WHO ARE ABLE TO BE FULLY VACCINATED AND BOOSTED. New members and visitors are kindly asked to be prepared to provide documentation of their vaccination status prior to training at HVA.

  • HURON VALLEY AIKIKAI RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REQUIRE FULL VACCINATION OR OTHER MEASURES CONSISTENT WITH PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDANCE (SUCH AS MASKING) FOR BOTH CURRENT AND NEW MEMBERS WHO WISH TO PARTICIPATE IN CLASS. 

  • Class participants are welcome to mask while training if they care to, but are not presently required to do so.

  • All members and class participants are expected to follow basic COVID hygiene (e.g., not training when symptomatic or if in close contact with someone with COVID, testing to confirm absence of infection when appropriate, following appropriate quarantine measures while recovering from COVID, etc.). 

  • Please let us know if you come down with COVID to allow for notification of other members if necessary. Potential COVID exposures in the dojo will be communicated to affected participants anonymously. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and update this information as events warrant.
