While we closely monitor the news and announcements from the government and Public Health England with anticipation on when we can reopen, plans are being put in place at Poole Ju jitsu and there are many aspects to consider, but the first and most important is to create a clean and safe environment for our instructors, Students & hirers.

Poole Ju jitsu has always had a strict cleaning regime before the Coronavirus outbreak and we have planned an even more stringent set of procedures to adhere to for when we open.

We are not just disinfecting and sanitizing the whole gym, we have carried out a risk assessment and looked at how we can return safely and get back to the “new normal”. Having planned what we need to do to reopen and cope with the new regime we have replaced our all our kick shields and focus pads, we have repainted the internal areas of the gym which required that fresh look, put up new signage on hygiene standards to educate and remind everyone, we have forehead temperature readers to check students, parents and visitors etc. We provide cleaning stations and promote contactless payments.

With the efforts of everyone at Poole Ju jtsu, including our members, let’s work together to keep ourselves and others safe and healthy.

Members are encouraged to help reduce the spread of the virus through good personal hygiene. This includes:

Frequent hand washing (wash your hands for 20 seconds) and hand sanitising during your visits.
Making full use of the soap, sanitisers and cleaning items available.
Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing and dispose of the tissue in the bin after use.
Familiarise yourself with the latest guidance from PHE and do not visit the gym if you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 and are advised to self-isolate.
Follow government guidance if you are a returning traveller. We have had NO reported cases of COVID-19 from around the Ju jitsu family and we wish that will remain when we can return to training. If a member is confirmed with having the virus the club will temporarily close while we deep clean and then reopen after seven days.

Please remember the symptoms of the Coronavirus. If you or anyone in your family have had any symptoms, feel unwell then you must self isolate and inform Poole Ju jitsu immediately on 07544 582253 or email pooleju-jitsu@hotmail.co.uk.
