COVID-19

Here's what you need to know about the safety precautions we're taking due to COVID-19. This page was last updated Tuesday, January 4th, 2022.

Sick Policy

First and foremost - please stay home if you or your children are not feeling well.

Do not come to class if you or anyone in your household shows any signs of sickness, especially signs of COVID-19. Click here to review the symptoms of COVID-19 from the CDC. Quarantine and isolation guidance from the CDC can be found here.

COVID-19 Vaccine

The CDC and Chester County Health Department encourage everyone eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Everyone age 5 and older is now eligible to be vaccinated. You can find information about getting a vaccine appointment in Chester County here.

You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your second dose of a two dose series (Pfizer/Moderna) or two weeks after you have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson). Find out here if you're eligible/due for a booster.

As a community of moms who all have our children’s safety and best interests at heart, we trust that you will monitor your own vaccination status and wear a mask in accordance with your vaccination status.

Masks

The vast majority of our mamas bring children to our classes who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated. The safety of our mamas and their children is our highest priority. Therefore we have the following mask policy during class:

During class:

If you are fully vaccinated, a mask is not required during class*. If you are not yet vaccinated, a mask is required between stations and when distance cannot be maintained. No mask required* during stations where strollers are socially distanced and you maintain at least 6ft of distance from other moms and kids (same policy as before).

Children will not be required to wear masks while they are buckled in their strollers*. Per the CDC, mask wearing is not recommend for children under two.

After class:

If you’re staying to play/chat/craft after class we ask that all moms please wear a mask even if you are fully vaccinated. Since most kids are not yet able to be vaccinated we ask that moms and kids over two wear a mask when kids are out of the strollers. When we craft on our mats and are socially distanced then masks are not required*, however whenever you need to get closer to others please wear a mask.

* Exception: An exception to this policy is for our classes that take place at CCIU. Masks are required at all times while inside the CCIU school building for everyone over two years old.

Social Distancing

Instructors will continue to space out strollers to give you adequate space to exercise without getting to close to another mom or her stroller. This remains in effect even with the updated mask guidance.

Children of all ages must be buckled in their strollers and remain in their strollers throughout class. If your child's needs cannot be met while buckled in the stroller, please move your stroller a safe distance away from the class area before removing them from their stroller. Once they’re buckled back in you may rejoin the class.

Our Village

Playgroups, events and crafts have resumed! When we host in person events we'll plan to use our strollers and mats as "safe zones" between families.
