COVID-19 UPDATES

**UPDATED April 13, 2022**

Beginning on May 1, 2022:

  • All children, parents, staff  will not be required to wear a mask during classes, training, or events but will have the option to continue wearing a protective face cover before, during, and after classes.
  • Parents and families attending and remaining in the lobby will not be required to wear a mask, but are strongly encouraged to wear one. We ask that all of our guests be aware that there are children present who are not vaccinated and may be at risk. Attention to distancing and touching common objects should be considerations for everyone and for each other.
  • Children attending Gymfinity's Bummer Free Summer Camp have no policy changes. This is determined by the state. Should a modification be presented, we will notify all parents immediately.
  • Gymfinity will continue to clean rigorously and sanitize regularly. This will not change for the foreseeable future.

**UPDATED FEBRUARY 19, 2022**

With the end of the mask mandate in Dane county looming at the beginning of March, I wanted to let you know what our policy will be at Gymfinity. Since the beginning of the pandemic we have made all of our policy decisions based on what we believed would be safest for the kids in our care. We know that regardless of the policy that we lay out for the future that we will not please everyone. We are hoping that all of you see that what we are doing is what is the best we could do for our children.

Beginning on March 1, 2022:

  • Children attending Gymfinity, age 4 and under are required continue to wear masks. This is because the children at this age do not have a vaccine available. We would hate to have any of our children exposed to any virus at Gymfinity, but without the option of proper protection provided by a vaccine we believe they deserve additional consideration. The least we can do is continue the use of a mask.
  • Parents attending classes with their younger children (Sprouts: Parent and Child class) will also be required to remain masked for the same reasons stated above.
  • Parents, children, and staff attending the Special Needs gymnastics classes will remain masked through the classes. This is a population with high risk cases and not all children can be vaccinated.
  • Teachers working with children in this age range and classes will be required to remain masked. We know that a person caring the Covid virus may be asymptomatic. As such, we do not want any adults or our teachers potentially sharing germs with our youngest students who remain unprotected. This will continue until vaccinations are available for that age group. At that point, the family is responsible for the child's safety.
  • Other children (ages 5 and up) will not be required to wear a mask during classes, training, or events but will have the option to continue wearing a protective face cover before, during, and after classes.
  • Staff working with children age 5 and up will not be required to wear a mask during coaching or teaching but will always have the option to continue wearing a protective face cover.
  • Family Open Play sessions will require that children under 4, parents and staff remain masked for these events until vaccinations for all ages are available.
  • Parents and families attending and remaining in the lobby will not be required to wear a mask, but are strongly encouraged to wear one. We ask that all of our guests be aware that there are children present who are not vaccinated and may be at risk. Attention to distancing and touching common objects should be considerations for everyone and for each other.
  • Children attending Gymfinity's Bummer Free Summer Camp have no policy changes. This is determined by the state. Should a modification be presented, we will notify all parents immediately.
  • Gymfinity will continue to clean rigorously and sanitize regularly. This will not change for the foreseeable future.
