Aerial Horizon is committed to the health and safety of our students and staff. We would like to share with you how we are proceeding and how you can help us support mitigating the risk of spreading Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). As the situation is emergent and changing daily, we will continue to monitor the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control, World Health Organization, and state and local health department communications for up-to-date information. We will issue updates as new information emerges and our plans will continue to evolve to best serve our community.
As of March 12th, 2020, Health officials have said that there have been no confirmed cases of community spread of COVID-19 in Texas yet, and as of February 29th, the World Health Organization has not recommended limiting travel. As of March 10th, while the US has declared this a public health emergency, based on current information in San Antonio, the immediate health risk from COVID-19 to the general American public is considered low.Currently, we are not planning to cancel classes, performances, or workshops at the studio, as our small gatherings fall well below the current recommendations for cancellation and we are taking the precautions below to mitigate risk. For those traveling to San Antonio from out of the state or country to attend the Aerial Theory Summit, we are offering a full refund of all workshop fees to anyone who requests one by emailing email@example.com. We will send an update to all affected students as immediately as possible, if the situation changes.
As of March 10th, 2020, Aerial Horizon has implemented the following procedures, based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization:
All students are required to thoroughly wash hands before and after classes.
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.
Students who miss classes due to sickness may utilize the complementary drop-in class that is included with each series class registration to use as a make-up for the class they missed.
Students who are unable to attend the Aerial Theory Summit due to sickness will have their workshop fees fully refunded after emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally, everyone is reminded of the following general recommendations from the CDC and the WHO:
Avoid touching your face, especially eyes, nose, and mouth.Avoid close contact with anyone who is showing signs of illness.
Cover your mouth with a tissue when you sneeze/cough, and dispose of the tissue immediately. If you do not have a tissue available, use your bent elbow (not your hands) to cover your mouth, and wash your hands and arm immediately afterward.
Stay home if you feel unwell, and seek medical care if you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.
Safety is always our top priority and we will continue to modify our procedures based on the advice of experts and medical professionals. Thank you for being a part of our community. By working together to implement the above precautions, we can minimize the risk of spreading infectious diseases at our studio. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us by phone (210-908-7816) or email (email@example.com).
