COVID-RELATED Safety Precautions

Mask Policy (effective June 14, 2021)

If you are fully vaccinated (two weeks past your final shot) and willing to provide proof of this via vaccination card or Excelsior pass, you are not required to wear a mask while in the building.

If you are not fully vaccinated or are not willing to share information about your vaccination status, you must wear a mask fully covering your mouth and nose while in the building.  

All other procedures listed below remain in effect.

In order to keep our instructors and students as safe as possible from COVID-19, the following safety measures will be in place for the duration of the pandemic.

Crowding and congestion will be reduced by measures to include:
  • Smaller classes (in most cases, maximum 6 students)
  • Few or no drop-in classes (to facilitate contact tracing)
  • Fewer classes per night
  • Staggered start times for classes, more time between classes
  • More space between rings, separate entrance/exit gates for each ring
  • Guest crates have been removed (non-members needing crates must carry in/carry out)
  • Designated parking and entrance/exit paths for different classes 

In addition:

  • No open training during classes, no lingering before or after class
  • Bring your own water.
  • Students and instructors must formally attest to their health status and agree to observe all safety-related guidelines 
  • If a student is accompanied by a friend or family member, the person may watch from ringside, but must sign in, attest to their health status, and agree to observe the same guidelines as students
