COVID-19 GUIDELINES AND EXPECTATIONS

Based on consultations with the state health department and CDC guidelines, and in accordance with the Governor’s stay at home order, we will be reopened  Sunday, June 14.

I am committed to the safety and health of the Karasi community, as each and every person is my top priority. I am working diligently so that you may  have great  confidence, and peace of mind that you are returning to the safest environment possible. As we open, I will continue to monitor the Covid-19 numbers, as we enter into a carefully planned and phased approach with new cleaning and safety protocols to ensure a place you can practice with confidence.

Thank you for your continued support and patience as we take this next step together to get back upon our mats at Karasi Fitness.

 

To keep the Karasi community healthy and safe we will be taking extra precautions, in compliance with requirements and recommendations of the CDC and health department.

 

WHEN YOU ARRIVE:

  • Your temperature will be taken with a contactless forehead thermometer.  Entry will not be permitted  if temperature is over 100.4. Temperature will be recorded during sign-in.

  • We will ask the following screening questions, and deny entry if the answer is yes:

    • In the past 24 hours have you felt feverish, had a new or worsening cough, felt short of breath, had a sore throat, or had vomiting/diarrhea?

    • In the past 2 weeks have you had any contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, traveled out of town, or been advised by the local health department or your healthcare provider to self-quarantine? Please stay home if you are ill. Thank you.
