FINAL NOTE

 

It is recommended to also ask if they have any underlying medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, or cancer etc. Explain to them the increased risk of illness if they were to contract COVID-19. 

Screen members one at a time, having members line up keeping 6 feet distance apartment. Considering class times this will have to be done quite fast. We would have to ask members to come almost 20 minutes before class to ensure screening time is adequate.  -Muay Thai Ontario
