Outdoor COVID-19 Policies & Procedures
While we are excited to be offering outdoor classes at our West Acton Studio and Boston Landing in Brighton, the health and safety of our Modern Barre community continues to remain our top priority. We want to take this time to provide you with the details of the precautionary measures we will be taking to keep our community safe, and the policies we will uphold to allow our outdoor ventures to succeed.
Clients must bring their own mat and equipment.
Clients are responsible for bringing their own mat to class. A beach towel is also recommended (to place underneath your mat) at the West Acton outdoor classes, in case of dewy grass during the early morning classes. Brighton classes will be held on hardscape. Clients should also bring 2-3 lb. weights, or a substitute such as soup cans or filled water bottles. We also highly recommend bringing water. Most of us are accustomed to taking class in our air conditioned studios, so it is imperative to stay hydrated, especially on those hotter days. Please note that mats and weights from the studio will be not be available for use.
Clients and instructors are required to wear a mask before & after class.
Per CDC and Massachusetts state guidelines, everyone must bring and wear a mask before and after class, but may take their masks off for the duration of class, as long as proper social distancing guidelines are followed. Clients who arrive without one will not be permitted to participate in class. Please note that gators, bandanas, and kerchiefs are not permitted in place of a mask, as they are not CDC approved.
Class sizes are strictly limited and social distancing guidelines must be followed.
Due to state mandates, class sizes will be limited to 15-20 clients per class (dependent upon location). Upon arrival, clients will be asked to self-space an appropriate minimum distance of 6 feet apart (there will be plenty of room to spread out!). We ask that clients be aware of social distancing guidelines, and do their best to maintain a 6 foot minimum distance between themselves and others at all times before, during, and after class.
Pre-registration is required & credits will be returned for weather cancellations.
Due to restricted class sizes, all clients must be pre-registered through MindBody for outdoor classes at least two hours prior to class. Clients who drop-in for class without pre-registration will not be permitted to attend. Cancellations must be made through MindBody at least 12 hours prior to class to avoid losing your class credit. In the case of weather cancellations (rain or especially high temperatures), registered clients will be given a minimum one-hour notice of the cancellation, and class credits will be returned.
We ask that clients monitor their health before attending outdoor classes.
If clients have any symptoms of COVID-19 as outlined by the CDC, they will not be permitted to attend class until they are no longer displaying symptoms for a 14 day period, or until they have been cleared by a doctor. Additionally, clients who have been exposed to others who display symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 are not permitted to attend classes for a period of 14 days. (Enjoy our Virtual studio classes in the meantime!) Clients who cancel for reasons related to COVID-19 will not be subject to any late fees and will have their class credit returned. The same policies will be upheld for instructors.
All clients are required to complete the Outdoor Class Waiver linked below prior to attending an outdoor class for the first time this season, acknowledging our health check guidelines.
Any client who has not completed the waiver will be required to upon arrival to class.
