Here's a huge THANK YOU to all the Nurses and Doctors working to save and protect us and eliminate this Covid-19. Please know this includes the dozens and dozens of current and former VIGS parents and athletes who are in those professions now. We are infinitely proud and thankful you do what you do. Please be safe!
Along with the rest of the country, Virginia International Gymnastics Schools has been paying close attention to the developing health concerns related to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and has spent the last several days and weeks learning about Coronavirus and how to minimize its impact on our staff, students and families here at VIGS.
Our overriding concern has been and will continue to be keeping you, your child and our employees safe. At this point, according to the CDC, the risk for Coronavirus-19 in the United States is relatively low. Even with that in mind, the threat can change at any time and is evolving. We have taken steps to respond using the current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control. We have reinforced the cleaning efforts begun two weeks ago at the gym and are reminding everyone to:
Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly (for 20 seconds) during practice or classes, after using the restroom or after any sneeze/cough.
If soap and water are unavailable, use hand sanitizer.
Additional recommendations and resources from Chesterfield County Schools information:
Once we reopen, if your child has symptoms of illness that would prevent participation at school, then please keep your child at home and call the school (VIGS) to report that your child is sick. Returning to school (VIGS) too soon may delay recovery from illness and may potentially expose others.
The CDC has a comprehensive website updated throughout the day with the latest news: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html. This site includes a tab for visitors to monitor travel updates.
The Virginia Department of Health has a comprehensive website that provides guidance and an updated look at case numbers:http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/surveillance-and-investigation/novel-coronavirus/.
Our VIGS employees are following CDC recommendations, including:
Requiring all employees to practice respiratory etiquette, hand hygiene, physical distancing and other precautionary measures that mitigate transmission.
Advising employees to stay home if they are sick or appear to have acute respiratory illness (i.e., cough, shortness of breath).
We will continue to monitor CDC guidelines and keep you posted of any significant changes. Be assured, we will continue taking precautions — regular deep cleaning and disinfecting — to help mitigate any virus risk in our building.
Our customer health and safety are utmost at Virginia International Gymnastics Schools, Inc., and we strive to continue to be a safe place to enjoy gymnastics.
Thank you for taking this seriously and joining us in mitigating the threat of Coronavirus so we can all continue to enjoy gymnastics at VIGS very soon!
