We know that these are unsettling times and we want to assure you that Werneck Family Jiujitsu is committed to the health and well-being of our community. We have been very closely monitoring the evolving situation with the Corona virus (COVID-19) and are following the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the California Department of Public Health to ensure the safety of our students, teachers, and staff.
Given the nature of our sport, we have always done all we can to make our studio as safe & hygienic as possible. We clean and disinfect the mat (and restroom) daily and will continue to do so. In response to the current state of affairs, we have increased our regular disinfecting of all high traffic surfaces (i.e. benches, water cooler, doors, shelves, and flooring) from biweekly to daily. Alcohol-based sanitizer is available at the front desk.
We would like to reiterate some of our related school policies:
- Don’t train while sick. If you or your child isn’t feeling well, stay home until fully recovered.
- Maintain good hygiene. We would remind our students that regularly washing one’s hands & face with warm water and soap (at least 20 seconds) before and after class should be common practice.
- Clean your uniform and gear after EVERY use. This isn’t just about b.o. – a dirty uniform can be very unhealthy for both you and your teammates.
At this time we are maintaining our regular schedule. We are monitoring state and federal recommendations daily, as well as the Roseville City School District policies, and will make adjustments should new developments and recommendations arise. We will notify all students via email should circumstances change.
Let’s all work together to do all we can to ensure everyone’s safety and health while in the studio.
