Covid-19 Protocols
Our Priority Is To the Health and Safety Of Our Kelowna Community
Here Are the Measures We Are Taking At Great Way Martial Arts:

1. We clean, sanitize, and disinfect.

2. We are disinfecting equipment used by the previous class before a new class begins.

3. Students stop outside until invited into the building once the previous class has exited.

4. Only a small number of students can enter at a time going to different stations where they drop off shoes, bags, coats, etc., and collect what they need for class.

5. We have set up a one-way system for entering and exiting the building with a 15 min. break between classes.

6. We have limited all class sizes to ensure proper distancing can be maintained.

7. Students spray their hands with a safe hand sanitizer before entering class.

8. We have a sanitizing station when you enter, on the training floor, and when you leave.

9. We have markers on the training floor so the students know where to stand, they are spaced at over 2 meters apart.

10. We have a separate training area upstairs for our Kung Fu Cubs classes.

11. All Great Way Team Members are vaccinated.

12. We ask all students and families to please stay home if anyone is feeling under the weather.

13. Masks are optional.
