Bartlett Basketball Academy has been monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation closely, keeping the health of all staff, players, and their families our top priority. At this time, until the extended government social distancing guidelines are removed, BBA is only open by appointment.
We will continue to assess the situation with the information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our staff is aware of the threat and will continue to follow the counsel of the CDC as part of our commitment to serving you.
First, we are practicing the primary advice from the CDC based on the “common-sense” approach to infection-control. This includes proper cough etiquette, frequent hand washing, use of hand sanitizers and limiting face touching.
Second, we are instructing our staff to exercise increased awareness and attention-to-detail in sanitizing work areas. Please communicate to your sons and daughters, (student athletes), etc… to be mindful of common public points of contact and to personally follow the CDC hygiene guidelines.
CDC advice includes:
Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
Wash hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds (as long as it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice), especially after using the restroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
Regularly use hand-sanitizer that contains at least 78% alcohol
Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
Here are some additional suggestions from our team and the steps that our staff will take:
Please encourage your players to wash their hands when they arrive at the gym and before they leave.
It is best for each player to have their own personal source of hydration (water bottle, Gatorade, etc.). We recommend that players refrain from sharing with teammates.
Avoid using public water fountain.
Basketballs and equipment will be cleaned and sanitized frequently.
We will throw away all water bottles left in the building at the end of the day. Please be sure to take them with you if you want to keep them.
We will continue to monitor national, regional, and local government alerts and information.
IF YOU ARE SICK PLEASE STAY HOME
Should you experience symptoms, test positive for Coronavirus, or have a need to quarantine on-site, we respectfully ask that you notify our staff immediately.
This notice serves as an advisory and we at BBA continue to be at your service. Thank you for your business and careful consideration of our common-sense approach to this situation.
