Covid-19 Updated Rules, Guidelines & Procedures
We take Covid-19 very seriously at Rock-a-Baby.
All of our performers/teachers are fully vaccinated, and we ask all of our attendees 12 and older to be fully vaccinated and wearing a mask. The CDC recommends children over 2 to wear masks, and for the most part, our families comply. There are times when a mask will fall down, off or askew, but during our previous indoor sessions, everyone was happy to comply, and the smallest children tried their best, with the help of their grownups.
No one may come to class with any sign of illness.
We have altered our set lists to create a more hygienic environment. We no longer pass out balls for everyone to share, instead we hand out individual play scarves that are laundered before each class. We no longer share the “spotlight” instrument, but demonstrate it in front of each child. We no longer blow bubbles from our mouths through a bubble trumpet, but now from a motorized bubble blaster. We still hand out instruments for each child to play with, but we disinfect them before each class. We keep our props and puppets out of reach for the most part to ensure that no germs are spread from child to prop/puppet to another child.
We also ask each family to be more aware of their child(ren) if they tend to move around the room. We ask them to redirect their child(ren) if they’re getting too close to other families’ belongings.
The JCC and Bellani Maternity also have strict rules in place to keep the entire building safe and clean. Masks are worn indoors, rooms are cleaned frequently, the HVAC systems have been upgraded and there are bottles of hand sanitizer everywhere.
