Updated Sep 28, 2022

Get ready for more Fun & Play the Safest Way at My Gym Long Beach

Here’s what to know before you go!

 


See below for important details about changes.



IMPORTANT UPDATE - Sep 28th

Public health authorities, government officials, and our health and safety team continue to monitor health and safety conditions carefully and adapt these guidelines as necessary.

As we have done since we began our phased reopening, we’ve been very cautious and gradual in our approach to our COVID-19 health and safety policies. Based on recent trends and guidance, My Gym Long Beach will be making adjustments to these policies, which may continue to change as appropriate.

 

As always, our procedures may change as we continue to follow guidance from the state of California and local health officials, so check back for the latest updates.

 

See our CURRENT policies below.

Vaccination Policy

Currently, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required for everyone 14-years-old and up to enter the gym.

Those who can not show proof of full vaccination may show a negative result no more than two days prior to their visit. A COVID-19 self-test, sometimes referred to as “home test,” is not permitted.

 

A link to advance vaccine and test proof submission will be sent after booking. Proof can also be submitted in person.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us by texting (562) 986-0066.

In an effort to ensure everyone's safety, especially that of toddlers who can not yet be masked or vaccinated we will continue with our Face Mask Philosophy - everyone 3-years-old and up is required to wear face masks at My Gym Long Beach regardless of vaccination.

We strongly implore you to wear surgical-grade masks (also referred to as medical procedure masks/disposable medical masks) or higher-level PPE (e.g., KN95 or N95 respirator masks) instead of cloth face coverings alone. Cloth face coverings alone do not provide the same level of source control or personal protection as a proper surgical mask or higher-level PPE. For those wearing surgical masks, double masking, with a cloth face covering worn over the surgical mask, is recommended for enhanced protection.

 

Regardless of the type of mask you wear, all masks must:

• Be made with at least 2 layers of breathable material (does not necessitate 2 separate masks)
• Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
• Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
• Be secured with ties or ear loops to remain hands-free

 

Based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, face shields (alone), single-layer masks, and masks containing valves, mesh material, or holes of any kind are not permitted at My Gym Long Beach.

We highly recommend children 2-years-old wear masks as well. Children attending Mighty Mites Plus classes and children attending Early Learning PREP are required to wear masks too, regardless of age.

(Birthday Parties: Masks are required to be worn by guests 3-years-old and up at all times, except when seated and actively eating or drinking)

Please make sure your mask is on and worn properly prior to entering the gym. Attendees may not enter maskless and put on their masks once inside.

Enhanced Filtration System

Because your health and safety are our top priority, we’ve made many upgrades and enhancements to ensure that the air that you breathe here meets or exceeds industry standards to guarantee My Gym Long Beach is the safest and most hygienic it can be. We use MERV-14 air filters (the same filtration grade used in general surgery rooms) which exceed the current standards for filtering out the COVID-19 virus. Multiple fans are placed around the gym to increase air flow.

Enhanced Cleaning & Sanitizing

We are thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing before our programs start for the day and at the end of the day when our programs have ended. All surfaces are sanitized with an electric sanitizing sprayer between every program. We are cleaning and sanitizing every piece of handheld equipment, used for different elements of our programs, after being used. Extra sanitization efforts are taken in regards to handles, railings, lobby benches and cubbies, entryway, and bathroom. In addition, equipment used for staff member facilitated skills are sanitized between each child. Staff members' hands are sanitized between spotting each child.

When sanitizing, we are following EPA-recommended Contact Time (which is the amount of time the treated surface should remain wet to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)). We are also using sanitizing products recommended by the EPA to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).

Hand Washing & Sanitizing

All members (children and adults) and staff members are required to wash their hands before playing on the gym floor and before leaving the gym. After the last year, we know that you can never have enough hand sanitizer, and that's why we've placed multiple hand sanitizers around the gym. Please make sure to sanitize your hands after touching your mask or eyes, and blowing your nose.

Teacher Precautions for Your Family's Safety

All of our teachers here at My Gym Long Beach are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and have received the booster dose. Each teacher is wearing a face mask.
