COVID-19

Our team has been working hard to prepare to resume classes and we are excited to welcome students into our facility.   To ensure the safety of our students and instructors we have come up with a plan to provide a safe and supportive learning environment.  We ask that all students carefully read the following and to contact their instructor if they have any questions:

  • It is mandatory to maintain a 6 ft distance, set out by the province, from another student or instructor at all times.  Depending on the class, there may be specific areas where you are to remain in as much as possible to ensure the proper distancing.
  • Students must use the disinfection stations that have been provided before entering the building, after leaving the building, and when you touch any surface in the building.
  • Students are asked to follow the procedure for entering and exiting the building provided by their instructor as it will differ based on the class.
  • Students are asked to be cognisant of the surfaces they touch and keep touching to minimum.
  • Students are encouraged to wear a mask if they feel more comfortable.
  • Students are asked not to wear gloves.  Instructors will wear gloves when moving equipment.
  • Student are encouraged to bring their own water and dish for their dog.
  • Only one person per dog is allowed in the building.
  • The lounge is closed at this time.

In addition to our regular cleaning and sanitizing, our volunteers and instructors will also be doing the following to prevent cross-contamination:

  • Class sizes will be reduced to allow for social distancing.
  • All surfaces will be disinfected between classes.V
  • A volunteer or instructor will be present at the door to greet students and explain procedures.
  • Doors will be propped open if possible and the weather permits.
  • Volunteers and instructors will wash their hands frequently.
  • Volunteers and instructors will avoid interacting physically with student dogs.
  • Volunteers and instructors will ensure only one person per dog is allowed in the building.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these times together!  The safety of our students, volunteers, instructors, and their families is of the utmost importance to us!
