Following the First Minister’s announcement on 3rd of August regarding the move to ‘beyond level 0’ we continue to review the government and sport body guidance and make changes to our services and operating arrangements. We will continue to introduce changes safely in our venues over the coming weeks and months, so please continue to visit this page for the latest updates. As ever, the safety of our staff and customers is our priority.
Here are the Changes in our venues starting from 31st August.
Each venue will be implementing these changes at a time that is safe for them to do so. However, over the coming week you may see some of the changes below in your venue:
We know that people need time to change so you can get through our gates 10 minutes before your activity starts (instead of 5).
We’re keeping the gap between classes/bookings at the moment.
We are carefully monitoring our air circulation and our CO2 in our venues to ensure we are safely below the limits set by the government. It does mean that we’re still not able to open certain areas or activities such as our saunas and steam rooms.
We continue to monitor the ventilation in all areas of our buildings. You may notice a change in the capacity levels of certain activities. This may fluctuate whilst we find the appropriate levels that allow us to deliver our classes safely and within the guidance we have been provided
Perspex screens will start to be removed from our reception areas, cafes and .
Our cafes will bring back re-usable cups.
in our sports halls, you’ll see more activities taking place such as reintroducing of five a side football and basketball.
We’re carrying out sanitisation cleans every 2 – 4 hours and a deep clean at the end of the day.
You’ll be able to use our main doors to enter and leave all our venues.
We’ve reopened our waiting areas in our venues for parents of our coaching children so they can stay in the building whilst waiting for their children.
Throughout September we will be removing the taped lines and spots from our studio floors, in line with government guidance. We would encourage you to continue to keep a safe distance from other class members (the instructor will support with this), wear your mask to and from the studio and remember to wipe down equipment before and after each class.
