BTT Canada West Island / Vaudreuil Reopening Protocols

The World Health Organization has declared the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) a worldwide pandemic. Due to its capacity to transmit from person-to-person through respiratory droplets, the provincial government has set recommendations, guidelines, and some prohibitions.  As a result, members of BTT Canada West Island / Vaudreuil (“BTT”) must comply with the following Reopening Protocols to participate in any and all BTT programs. These protocols will be modified as needed.

  1. All members must wear a mask upon arrival, as well as when circulating in the facilities. The mask may be removed once settled in your training zone. The masks are mandatory; for those who do not have a mask, disposable masks will be available for $2.00 + taxes.
  2. Each class has 3 to 6 training zones, that are carefully placed 2 meters from each other. Each training zone can be occupied by a solo member, a pair, or a group of 4.
  3. Instructors and members must keep a 2-meter distance from each other, unless when demonstrating a technique, where the instructor will wear a mask or face shield.
  4. The lobby and waiting area will be closed for the moment, so we ask parents to drop-off their children no more than 10 minutes before class and pick them up immediately after class.
  5. For children under 5 years old, a maximum of 1 parent and/or family member can accompany the child into the academy, and can remain in the waiting area for the duration of the class, while wearing a mask, and keeping a 2-meter distance from others.
