Biker Barre House Rules COVID-19 Edition – aka lots of information for an increasingly weird time
If you are not feeling well, or are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 or other illness – PLEASE stay home. If you are sick, even a little teeny tiny bit sick, please do not come in.
Masks are required at all times – before, during, and after class. If you need one, we are selling some super fly options, as well as an array of disposable masks. We also have some spiffy face shields for purchase! Please do not give us a hard time about this. If wearing a mask makes you angry, sad, sick, or hot – that’s all as valid as you need it to be – but you can’t come into Biker Barre. Or my house. Or out to dinner with me.
You will be asked to sign a waiver which includes CDC recommended health questions when you come in for the first time. If something changes, you must let us know immediately. If you lie about your exposure or anything else on the waiver, you are actually a bad person and we reserve the right to judge you.
Staff will be touchlessly taking your temperature when you walk in. If your temperature is over 100 degrees you will not be allowed into Biker Barre. NO EXCEPTIONS and NO DO OVERS.
Staff will be asked the same questions and held to the same standards. Anyone displaying symptoms of sickness will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days and/or take a covid test.
You will be let into the studio no more than 10 minutes before class starts and will be asked not to linger in the studio after class (even though we really, really miss hanging out with you.)
Grippy socks, as always, are required in the barre room. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Regular deep cleanings have been scheduled throughout the entire studio using EPA approved disinfectants.
All surfaces (counters, bathrooms), touch points (door knobs, stair rail, light switches), bike and barre equipment will be cleaned and sanitized by Biker Barre staff before and after each class
All props (weights, mats, bands) will be sanitized and isolated for 24 hours after use. No outside props will be allowed in either studio.
Towels are available for rent. You can bring in your own from home, but they must stay with you the entire time you are in the studio and they must leave with you.
No water bottle filling and no eating in the studio at any time. Water will be available for sale.
We do not have cubbies at this time, but we do have hooks and places to leave shoes. Please bring as little as possible into the studio.
The showers are currently unavailable and we ask that you change prior to coming to the studio.
Sanitation stations are placed throughout the studio for clients and staff to sanitize hands upon entry and exit of the studio
We have reduced all class sizes to four clients in the bike room and two in the barre room in order to adhere to CDC social distancing guidelines
We will be requiring clients and instructors remain six feet apart in the lounge and ten feet apart in the workout spaces in order to comply with following social distancing guidelines established by Mayor Bowser/Governor Hogan and have added designated markers on the floor to assist everyone in keeping safe distance from one another.
Class times have been arranged to allow for enough time to properly clean and sanitize all surfaces, touch points, and equipment for each class, to allow for the space to air out, and to limit social interaction at this time.
We will be offering contactless check in and have gone entirely cashless. Please update your card BEFORE you come in.
The HVAC has been thoroughly inspected and cleaned to ensure that the studio receives proper circulation in accordance with CDC and EPA recommendations.
We will not be using foggers, UV light machines, or sanitizing robots in the studio. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you clean contaminated surfaces with liquid disinfectant products to prevent the spread of disease – and that’s what we are going to do. Your dentist/doctor/PT/trainer may have one or all of those things, but we have done our research and don’t want to give a false sense of security beyond keeping the studio SUPER clean – as we always have.
