The safety of our clients and staff at mf3 is our #1 priority. Throughout the “NY Pause” we have worked hard to ensure that all safety protocols are being properly enforced and our studio is the safest place in town upon reopening! While we are following all CDC and NYS guidance and recommendations, we have also consulted other studio owners and physicians regarding safety and sanitization.
HVAC: MERV-13 filters have been installed per NYS guidelines. In addition, we are also using Ultraviolet Sterilizing UV Air Purifiers. UV light has been proven to eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses and germs.
SOCIAL DISTANCING: Our studio had a makeover! All of our Megaformers have been arranged in order to maintain a 6 foot distance between them. Class sizes have been modified to accommodate social distancing concerns.
DISINFECTING & SANITIZATION: We are only utilizing items on the EPA List N that have been identified as eliminating SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). The megaformers as well as all touch points in the studio are disinfected on a daily basis as well as in between sessions. As mentioned above, we are also utilizing Ultraviolet Sanitizers at the end of each day.
WIPES: The wipes we have always used in the studio are on the EPA’s list, as your safety and the cleanliness of our studio has always been a paramount concern. In addition to the studio cleanings, clients will be instructed to wipe the megas down before AND after class – all touch points including springs.
HAND SANITIZERS: All of the hand sanitizers in the studio contain a minimum of 75% alcohol. We have installed a touchless hand sanitizer upon entry as well as individual sanitizers on each machine. We also have 2 hand washing stations and encourage you to wash your hands as needed.
MASKS: Masks are required in the studio at all times as mandated by NYS. This applies to both our clients and and studio staff. Please enter the studio wearing one. Please note that bandanas, buffs & gaiters are NOT acceptable face coverings.
STUDIO SERVICES: We have temporarily suspended the following services in order to minimize contact points:
Towels – please feel free to bring your own
Borrow socks – We will no longer be offering borrow socks in the case you forget yours. GRIP SOCKS ARE REQUIRED….closed toe preferred and are available for purchase at the studio.
Toiletries – deodorant/hair ties/feminine products. Feel free to bring your own but please note we are asking to minimize personal belongings brought into studio.
Water – while we will still have water on hand, we prefer you bring your own to minimize contact throughout studio.
Cubbies – please minimize your belongings and place under your mega platform upon entry to studio.
BOOKING & CANCELLATION: Booking must be made in advance online through the Mindbody App or our website. There will be no exceptions. All classes must also be prepaid. We have a strict 12 hour cancellation policy. If you do not cancel within the 12 hours, you will lose the credit for that class…..sorry no exceptions.
ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE: Upon arrival your temperature will be taken and you will asked to complete a health survey if you have not already completed online. Your instructor will direct you to the megaformer one at a time, and you will exit in the same fashion.
RESTROOMS: We are requesting at this time that the restrooms only be used in emergencies for the safety of our staff and clients. There has been some evidence indicating that COVID-19 is present in and may spread through waste.
LATE ARRIVALS: For safety reasons we will be enforcing a strict no lateness policy. No exceptions. Please give yourself extra time to find parking and be on time for class.
HEALTH: Each individual plays a large part in the continued safety of the studio. Please be courteous when it comes your health and the well being of others. We know you want to get to class, but please reschedule if you are under the weather. We ask that you please DO NOT come to class if you have experienced any of the following —
- If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 such as a frequent cough, sore throat, fever, difficulty breathing, muscle pain, recent loss of taste or smell, vomiting, diarrhea, or are just plain not feeling well.
- If you have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days. or are awaiting test results.
- If you have been around someone who tested positive for Covid-19 within the past 14 days.
- If you have travelled outside New York to a State on the restricted list as outlined by our governor within the past 14 days.
