Participating students will also engage in educational games, hands-on science experiments, quiet reading time, and physical fitness during their full day care.

And temperature checks and handwashing is frequent and mandatory.
Is this safe? ~We are limiting all class sizes and full day care to less than 10 to prevent exposure to large groups. ~There is no public waiting area. And students line up 6 feet apart when entering and exiting the dojo. ~ Students are assigned areas of the mat 6 feet apart from each other. And we do not engage in any physical contact during classes and lessons. ~All hard surfaces, such as door handles, light switches, benches, etc. are disinfected hourly. All porous surfaces, such as the mats, pads, standing bags, etc. are disinfected before and after every class. We only use disinfectant certified to kill the coronavirus. ~We are asking all students who feel ill to stay home until fully recovered. You will be able to make up all missed classes when you return. And all students and instructors have their temperatures checked at the door when entering. ~Further, none of the Red Dragon staff will ever teach class or be in the building if ill.
