Dear Aerial Horizon students,
Over the past few weeks, following the guidance of the CDC, the WHO, and local health authorities, Aerial Horizon has taken several precautionary steps in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, with the hope that we would be able to make it through the outbreak without disrupting our usual operations (http://aerial-horizon.com/what-we-are-doing-in-response-to-the-coronavirus-pandemic/). Today, however, we are making the difficult decision to suspend our regular series classes starting Sunday, March 15, 2020. We hope to resume classes on Sunday, March 29, but we will continue to monitor the situation and do what is best for the safety of our community.
As a community and business that values safety above all, we feel it is our responsibility to act in the best interests of the health of our students and staff while also ensuring Aerial Horizon does our part to reduce/slow the spread of this virus in our wider community.
For our current students already enrolled in series and drop in classes, our plan at the moment is to simply prolong our current series, which was scheduled to end on April 19. If we are able to resume series classes on March 29, the new end date for series classes will be May 3. With this solution, all students who are currently enrolled in classes will still receive their full series of classes. We will continue to update everyone again as our plans take shape with this rapidly changing situation through our Facebook page, newsletter, and website.
At this time, private lessons and small open studios will be held at our instructor’s discretion and available to book on Mindbody: https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/classic/ws?studioid=144959&stype=-9&sView=week&sLoc=0
Students and instructors in private lessons and open studios are required follow our increased cleaning and disinfecting plan:
- Wash hands
- All students are required to thoroughly wash hands before and after lessons.
- Students and instructors involved in partnering work and spotting are required to wash their hands regularly during practice.
- Hospital grade disinfectant
- All surfaces, doorknobs, and faucets are cleaned and disinfected twice per day and mats are cleaned regularly with hospital grade cleaner.
- All aerial fabrics have been washed and we are disinfecting all equipment regularly with 95% Ethyl Alcohol.
- Stay home when you feel sick
- Students and staff who are exhibiting any signs of illness are not permitted to enter the studio.
We are making this very difficult decision out of an abundance of caution and care for our community. We care deeply about every student and want everyone to stay safe during this unprecedented event. If you have questions, feel free to contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (210.908.7816). We look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
