Health & Safety
Dear TGC Members,
We understand that many in the gymnastics community are concerned about the health and safety of athletes amid the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and are seeking guidance about whether to attend class or practice due to coronavirus concerns.
Because coronavirus is a rapidly evolving global health issue that is affecting geographic areas differently, it is challenging to provide a blanket directive that would make sense for all members. As part of that process, we suggest reviewing the latest CDC guidance, reviewing other school or community closures in your area, and reaching out to your local public health department, to help determine if your child should participate in gymnastics activities.
Instead, we ask that our families work together to determine what is in the best interests of your family and community. We will continue to hold class and practice regularly and will be in frequent contact with the local health department as the situation develops. We will follow the guidance and directives from the health department and any government directives as they occur.
We have a strategic plan in place and have put sanitation procedures into place to ensure we are wiping down mats and surfaces each class. Our cleaning company is also working with us on deep cleaning and overnight procedures to ensure we keep all facilities and equipment as clean as possible.
Some resources that may be helpful include:
WHO’s Guidelines for Mass Gatherings:
WHO's Hand-Washing Steps:
While we know potential cancellations and disruptions are not ideal, the health and well-being of our athletes and families are our top priority. We appreciate the community coming together to help make these difficult decisions.
We will communicate any updates, schedule changes or adjustments as they occur via text, facebook and email. If you are not subscribed to receive our texts and desire to, please reply to this email.
