HomeCovid19 Policies

Updated – October 19, 2020

The entire world is facing a unique situation and we, in Canada, are dealing with it head-on. Limelight Allstars is following all Federal, National and Provincial guidelines for re-opening and maintaining business during this pandemic.

  1. Social Distancing
    1. We are maintaining 6 ft between athletes and coaches when possible
    2. We have re-shaped some practices to include individualized training. When we are practicing choreography, we ensure no contact and we always use masks.
    3. We have created a stunting device that enables us to practice stunting yet maintain 6ft distance at the same time
  2. Masks
    1. We require all staff to wear masks at all times
    2. We require athletes to wear masks upon entrance and exit as well as times when we cannot guarantee 6ft distance.  We are also requiring masks for all of practice except when we need an air break or when we are performing multiple skills in a row, thus causing difficulty to breathe.
  3. Assessments
    1. We take daily attendance for all activities
    2. We perform temperature checks
    3. We complete a physical assessment form online for each day
  4. Cleaning and Disinfecting
    1. Each day we begin with a thorough cleaning throughout the gym
    2. We sanitize equipment between uses and classes
    3. We clean at the end of each shift, including washrooms, doors, cubbies, and all surfaces that came into contact with people
  5. Maintaining gym capacity
    1. Currently, we have no spectators.
    2. We have arranged team practice times so that we can ensure there is no overlap of teams
    3. We are focused on keeping our capacity to under 10 athletes in a room at a time
    4. We have limited tumbling class sizes to 5-6 to help keep our capacity numbers low – This is on pause until Mid-November
  6. What happens if someone in our program gets Covid19?
    1. We ask that any parent inform us immediately should you or one of your family members is diagnosed with Covid19
    2. We will then contact the local government to aid us with further actions
    3. If the infected person attended class or practice while they were infected, then we will
      1. close the gym for 24 hours to do a thorough cleaning
      2. contact those affected ( anyone that may have had contact with that individual to assess their situation)
      3. The infected individual will be asked to quarantine for 14 days before they can return to practice
      4. If other athletes or coaches had contact with that person, they may also be asked to quarantine for 14 days
      5. Those affected will have Zoom classes while in quarantine
    4. What if you are in a school where there is Covid19 cases?
      1. Follow all school guidelines: If they say to stay away from school, then you should stay away from our gym too.
      2. If the school requires a test for you to return, please inform us and we will require the same.
      3. If you have personally been exposed then self-quarantine and get a covid19 test.
      4. If you were not personally exposed, then follow school guidelines and let us know what those are.
      5. Most importantly, we want to keep our gym a safe place, so please avoid coming if you have been exposed at all until you are deemed safe.
    5. If there is an outbreak and the government closes our business
      1. If the closure is less than 1 month, all classes will be on Zoom
      2. If the closure is longer than 4 weeks, then
        1. We will offer some Zoom classes
        2. Extend our season to make up the time, if applicable
        3. In a situation where we cannot extend the season, we will offer credits for future use
      3. We will do our best to ensure everyone gets to complete their session
      4. Currently, we are in Modified stage 2. We are still holding practice for all teams in a modified fashion, meeting all governmental guidelines.
