Dear WFJJ Family and Friends,
It is with a heavy heart that I announce the temporary closure of Werneck Family Jiujitsu in Roseville. In response to the current status of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be closed from Monday, March 16th through Tuesday, March 31st.
We have spent many hours over the past few weeks discussing the best course of action to take for the well-being of our families, members, friends, and the community at large. We have stayed up-to-date on the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, as well as those from Placer county and the local school district.
Just as other organizations like Disneyland, the National Basketball Association, and the University of California are taking the recommended precautions, our local school district and all schools in Placer county have taken the step of closing through mid-April. We believe it is our civic responsibility to follow the same proactive course of action. If we can slow the Coronavirus’ spread through such “social distancing,” it greatly increases the odds our medical establishment will be able to adequately care for those who fall seriously ill.
We do not take this decision lightly. Cassio and I are passionate about providing the highest level of instruction and service, and personally dread the idea of not being on the mat with all of our friends and students. Naturally, we are apprehensive about the economic impact these policies will have, but most importantly we are concerned about the well-being of our community. We hope our actions help facilitate a quick return to normalcy for all the residents of California.
As things unfold here in Roseville, we will stay up-to-date with developments, and assess future actions as needed. We will keep you updated. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at (916) 768-7461.
Stay healthy and happy.
Força E Honra,
Cassio Werneck and Darren Figgins
