COVID COMMUNICATION

August 10, 2020

After consulting with MDH and following the latest guidelines, here's what we are doing:

COVID Exposure and Testing

  1. If an employee/athlete with NO KNOWN EXPOSURE  is showing any signs or symptoms of illness, the following steps are required.
    • The employee/athlete should not come in to the gym
    • The employee/athlete must get a COVID test at a qualified facility
    • The employee/athlete can return to the gym immediately upon receiving a negative test result
      1. If an employee/athlete tests positive for COVID the employee/athlete must self quarantine for 10 days (from the date symptoms presented) and have no symptoms for at least 24 hours before returning to work.
  2. If an employee/athlete with KNOWN EXPOSURE regardless of showing any signs or symptoms of illness, the following steps are required.
    1. The employee/athlete should not come to the gym
    2. The employee/athlete needs to get a COVID test at a qualified facility
    3. The employee/athlete can return to the gym after 14 days from the known date of exposure REGARDLESS of results. (i.e. known exposure on a Monday, employee/athlete can return to work the Tuesday two weeks later)
      1. An employee/athlete who shows any signs or symptoms of illness, but tested negative, must be retested.
      2. If at the end of the 14 day self quarantine the employee/athlete shows signs or symptoms of illness they cannot return to the gym until they have NO signs or symptoms for at least 24 hours.

EXPOSURE is defined as close contact (within 6ft), indoors, without a mask for 15 minutes with someone who has tested positive to COVID.

These policies hold true for any immediate household members of TCT (other siblings in our programs, parents who coach, etc).

MANDATORY MASKS

July 23, 2020

Governor Walz has implemented a new mask policy for all of Minnesota beginning on Saturday, July 25 for all indoor public places.

This is how things will change at TCT to be in compliance:

  • We will be asking that everyone entering our building wear a mask.

  • After checking in and passing the temperature check, athletes may remove their masks while they are practicing, then as they leave the building they'll be asked to put it on again, with the exception of team gymnasts who depart through the back door.

  • Parents, as has been our recent policy, we are not recommending that you stay to observe, but if you do, you will need to wear a mask while in the lobby and viewing areas of the gym.

  • Parents participating in Mini Mites (parent/child class) with your child, will be asked to keep their masks on while in class.

  • Children 5 and under are exempt from having to comply with the mask policy.

  • Coaches who spot or come in close contact with athletes will wear a mask while doing so.

  • Coaches or office staff interacting with families in the lobby will wear masks.

If you or any of member of your family have been knowingly exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid or if you are showing symptoms yourself, we ask that you remain at home and get tested before returning to TCT.

Thank you for your continued cooperation,

TCT

if you're sick, stay home!

Please help all of us stay safe. If you suspect you're sick, stay home. Please don't disguise a fever with Tylenol or ibuprofen. Continue to wear masks and practice social distancing outside the gym. The healthier we all stay, the longer we can stay open!

covid protocols

  • Everyone entering the building must wear a mask
  • All temperatures will be checked upon entry
  • Your child will be directed to thoroughly wash their hands after they pass the temp check
  • Parents are encouraged to drop off and return when the event concludes
  • The lobby has limited space and you must stay 6 feet apart with your mask on
  • Your child will be directed to thoroughly wash their hands before they leave
  • We clean surfaces before and after each practice and event
