Covid-19 Policies and Procedures

 

Based on the announcement from Ontario Premier Doug Ford on July 24, 2020 in regards to the Restart Plan Phase 3, SminkFIT Incorporated has decided to resume operations on September 14, 2020.

 

Deep Clean of Studio

 

Over the Covid-19 break period, SminkFIT conducted repeated deep cleaning of the facility using disinfectants that have been reviewed and confirmed to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 by Public Health Ontario.

 

Controlled Access

  • All clients are required to book their services via our free MindBODY app before any in person services.

  • Studio access only through the office entrance and members arriving early are to wait outside to give adequate spacing to people coming down the stairs.

 

Limited Occupancy

  • Although we our studio can hold 12 people at a time and still meet legally enforced social distancing rules, we are going above and beyond the call of duty by limiting access to 6 people at a time. This unprecedented decision allows our clients to remain a minimum of four meters apart from one another at all times.

  • Our MindBODY booking system allows a limited number of members to book and attend a specified time slot for personal training, classes, and open studio space.

  • All of our services are spaced minimum of 15 minutes apart to allow staff sufficient time to clean and disinfect equipment and other surfaces frequently.

  • Bathroom access is allowed with the limit of two people at once.

  • SminkFIT has removed outside office seating area/couch to limit the spread of virus.

 

Client Entry Point

We have one front entrance/common area that is shared with another business. We have posted signs to remind all visitors to the building to encourage physical distancing in the common area.

All visitors to SminkFIT are encouraged physical distancing and discouraged congregating. All clients are encouraged to conduct their services and exit the facility without unnecessary delay. Equipment should never be shared or used simultaneously without cleaning completed. All visitors are encouraged to maintain minimum physical distance of 2 meters apart.

 

Small Group Training Classes

We have restricted our class schedule and class sizes to provide adequate distancing from one another at all times:

  • Restricted schedule to maintain control of studio cleaning

  • All classes are limited to 6 people and all clients are required to book services via MindBODY app.

  • Our classes have all been modified to provide enhanced distancing (4 METERS) at all times

  • Services have been scheduled to allow staff adequate time to disinfect equipment and surfaces before start of new service.

 

Personal Protective Equipment

All clients are welcome to bring their own PPE – Masks, Gloves or eye protection. Our staff are not required to wear PPE while leading Small Group Training services,  but will happily oblige during other services if requested by the client or if simply inclined to do so.

 

Bottled Water

While we will continue our complimentary bottled water service, to minimize handling, all clients are encouraged to bring their own bottled water or water containers.
