Brazil-021 Houston Families,
We hope everyone is doing well! We know over the past few weeks there has been an increased need for information surrounding COVID-19 outbreaks across the nation. The safety, health and well being of our students and families are our priority.
Our pre-existing daily cleaning procedures are already very thorough, however considering the current circumstances, Brazil-021 Houston management is working consistently through-out the day to ensure our facilities are sanitized and safe for our students and their families. We have increased the frequency of cleaning the front desk, iPads, private restroom, restroom keys, waiting area, mats and equipment. This also includes frequent sanitizing of our tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks and all hard surfaces.
For the safety and well-being of others, if you are, feel like you might be or have been sick. Please allow the proper recovery time before returning to training. Please also be cautious about training if you have been in contact with an individual who has been sick.
As always, we encourage all students to keep exceptional hygiene to keep yourself, family and other students healthy.
-Keeps hands clean by washing hands with soap and warm water for 20-30 seconds, especially after using the restroom, before eating, after blowing nose or coughing and before and after training.
-If soap and water is not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
-Shower as soon as possible after training. Don't forget we have the shower and towels at the Academy that is available for use after training.
-Wash GI immediately. For those who train in the early mornings, we do have our GI washing service if interested. Clean GIs should always be worn to training.
-Shoes should be worn at all times when walking in common areas. Which includes waiting room, restrooms and hardwood floor inside the dojo. Walking bare-feet is only acceptable when on the mats.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely. We are confident in our facility and students to maintain a healthy and safe environment for our students and families. We are a very small scale compared to large gyms with lots of day to day traffic.
Again, please refrain from training if you are sick, have been sick or think you might be falling ill. Please also be cautious about training if you have been in contact with an individual who has been sick.
