Pre-Screening

As of Oct 1st, we will no longer be temperature screening. The Philly Dept. of Health no longer recommends it as an effective method of COVID-19 screening.

We’re asking all our students to pre-screen at home for symptoms of COVID-19.

1) Take your temperature for 14 days before starting classes/camp to verify it’s within the normal range (refer to your thermometer instructions).
2) Self-screening for the presence of symptoms (fever of 100.4°F or greater, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, nausea, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, vomiting, etc.) within the past two weeks.
3) No contact with a person who has been diagnosed, tested positive or has symptoms of COVID-19 for the past 14 days.

When you arrive for the first time you’ll be signing our new waiver. 

Face Coverings

All our coaches and students will be required to wear a cloth face mask from their car all the way into the building and for the duration of their class.

Your mask should fit securely in place, and you should be able to breath comfortably. If doing circus with your mask on doesn’t sound like fun, you should check out our virtual classes for now!

In the event of an emergency, our coaches will supervise you removing your mask and help you get appropriate medical attention.

6 Student Classes

All of our classes will be 6-students maximum, with ample time between classes to allow for safe transitions.

We’re also limiting the number of classes in the building during a given hour, and staggering our class start times to ease entryway contact.

For now, we’ll only be offering 4-week enrollments, and some apparatuses and classes won’t be available yet.

We’re hoping we can bring back our class-cards and unlimited memberships, but for now it’s safer to stick with small, consistent groups of people.

Apparatus Care

Every student will have their very own aerial apparatus each day which no other student will use until it’s been disinfected. For some apparatuses this means getting sprayed with an EPA registered, hypoallergenic disinfectant and for other apparatuses it means resting 72 hours between uses.

After class, each apparatus will be taken down and stored by itself.

Not all classes will be available at our opening, but we’ll be releasing classes as we feel we can safely disinfect and clean the apparatuses.

Adult students who own their own apparatuses are welcome to bring them instead and will take them home after each class.

Sanitation and Social Distance

We’ve placed social distancing reminders and markers throughout the building, and will be following CDC guidelines and EPA approved disinfectants on all our high-touch surfaces on a daily basis.

For our youth programming, we’ll be coming out to gather our students one group at a time in the parking lot. Parents are not permitted to observe in the building.

For our adult programming, we ask that all students put their masks on in their cars and maintain social distance as they enter and leave the building.
