Covid updates 5/16/21: Mask and Travel

  • In consideration for those in our community that are not able to receive the vaccine, are immunosuppressed, or live with underlying health conditions affecting the vaccine’s effectiveness, IOBT will continue to ask clients to wear a single CDC approved mask during sessions and classes.
  • If you have traveled via plane, train, or other public transportation, and have not completed your COVID-19 vaccinations, please let us know and make plans to delay any appointments at our studio until after 7 days of your return.
  • If you are unvaccinated and have been in close proximity (inside for greater than 15 minutes without masks on) with people outside of your home who are unvaccinated, please delay appointments until after 14 days of this exposure.
**Please note – Toby will continue to see only fully immunized clients and require double-masking during sessions as well as proof of vaccination for new clients. As your travel schedule expands, please let Toby know and make plans to delay any appointments at the studio until after 7 days of your return.

 


IN-STUDIO SESSIONS REQUIREMENTS

  • Arrival time. To allow time for previous clients to exit the studio and for studio sanitizing, please wait in your car or by the front door, six feet apart until your class time. If you are in your car, your practitioner will either text or attempt to wave you to the door when it is time.  At this time, no visitors are allowed to wait in the reception area. Exceptions may be made only under special circumstances. Visitors are required to also complete a screening, wear a mask and wash hands.
  • COVID screening. Clients will be asked to complete a COVID health screening before they enter the building. This includes answering a questionnaire and a temperature reading with an infrared thermometer.
  • Masks are required at all times in the studio and treatment room. IOBT is requires clients wear CDC approved mask to all sessions and classes.  If you forget the additional mask, IOBT will provide one for you. Your mask must cover your nose and chin and fit snuggly enough that you can comfortably breathe but you do not have to constantly adjust/pull up the mask. *Gaiter and N95 masks with the front valves are not highly recommended by the CDC and are not an option for our studio mask policy. If you arrive at your appointment with either option, we will provide a disposable mask for you to wear and ask that you wear a similar mask to your next session. 
    • SESSIONS WITH TOBY – **Please note – Toby will continue to see only fully immunized clients and require double-masking during sessions as well as proof of vaccination for new clients. As your travel schedule expands, please let Toby know and make plans to delay any appointments at the studio until after 7 days of your return.
  • All appointments and classes are 50 minutes.   This allows for a safe transition of clients, sanitization, and for practitioners to take a breath and get ready for you. We all miss the time together in the studio to chat and connect with one another but in an effort to keep everyone safe, please exit the studio promptly at the end of your session.
  • Wash hands before session. Please follow the suggested 20-second rule. 
  • Payment Info: Because reception hours are not currently available, clients will be asked to secure a credit card on file when scheduling. Payment will be applied to the credit card on file and a receipt will be emailed.

    • Workout gloves
    • Personal hand sanitizer

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS IN PLACE

  • Enhanced cleaning using CDC-approved products. IOBT performs enhanced cleaning between every client. We clean equipment and accessories, bathrooms, treatment room, and reception area with CDC-approved products. We are also performing additional deep cleanings.
  • Health screenings of clients before they come to the studio. Every person is screened for symptoms before entering the studio. These screenings take place the day before with a COVID screening form emailed prior to your session and when you arrive at your appointment. In-studio health screenings require all clients and staff to answer questions about potential symptoms and take temperature checks.
  • Our universal masking policy is mandatory for both staff and clients and requires everyone to wear masks at all times.Due to the new, highly contagious Covid-19 variant known as B.1.1.7, IOBT is requiring clients to double their masks.  This can include adding a disposable surgical under (or over) a cloth mask or over a N95 (without the filter) or over a KN95 (without the filter).  If you forget the additional mask, IOBT will provide one for you.
  • Physical distancing of equipment along with many updates have been made to the studio.  Equipment stations have been set up to provide more than 6 feet between each “pod”. In addition, scheduling is currently limited to one to two staff members and appointments are spaced out. There is a high chance that you will be working alone with your instructor.
  • Other studio improvements also include: 3 high-powered HEPA filters, a separate hand washing area, hands-free toilet and dispensers, vinyl covered handles for easy sanitation, and  safety updates to the front desk area.
  • For contactless check-in and check-out, clients will need to prepay for in-studio sessions or have a credit card on file.
  • We are taking every safety precaution to help you feel comfortable and to help you get the attention you need in your session. Thank you for understanding and doing your part to keep our staff and clients safe. Please feel free to contact the studio at 919-361-0104 if you have any questions.
