Atlas Pilates Studio Reopening
In accordance with King County Washington COVID-19 Safe Start, the studio is now open for Private Pilates lessons. We plan at most, to allow two teachers and two clients in the studio at any hour. The number of people in the facility, including staff and clients is limited to 30 percent of the facility’s building occupancy.
Please watch Teresa’s Health and Safety Briefing before your next workout in the studio. She describes what you can expect as we return to the studio in this phase of the Safe Start.
Everyone in the studio is required to:
- Wear face coverings or masks at all times
- Maintain six feet of physical distance from each other when possible
There are many things that we’re doing to reduce the COVID-19 risks.
The front desk will not be staffed or equipped. All scheduling will continue through email firstname.lastname@example.org and payments via paypal invoice.
Lockers are available for your valuables, but you should come dressed for your workout and leave in your workout clothes. The shower is unavailable and towels are no longer provided.
Sign our COVID-19 Waiver before you arrive:
This waiver acknowledges your consent and commitment to the facility’s reopening policies.
