A face mask at RowStudio? — Ask Dr. Kirsten!

Ask Dr. Kirsten - Face Mask

Your health is our highest priority. That’s why we have decided that the use of a face mask in the studio is mandatory since October 1st. Only during the workout, the mask can be taken off. In case you forgot your a face mask, you can buy one at the reception for €1,-.

Why face masks?

There was a long debate in the Dutch Parliament about the usefulness of face masks, but recent studies showed that infections went down after wearing face masks. It is clear that the face mask offers the best safety if both parties (possible COVID-19 wearer and the non-infected person) have a face mask. Let’s be progressive and do everything we can to get that second corona wave under control.

What else can you do?

Keep the 1.5 meter distance at all times, including at the entrance, in the dressing room and in the studio itself. Also the trainers will stay at 1.5 meters distance. If you experience complaints of colds, coughs, sore throats or fever, please do stay at home. The best thing to do is to call the Corona Advice Line to discuss how to get tested. The same applies if your partner/roommate experiences these complaints.

What we already do RowStudio: good ventilation, a maximum number of participants per class (depending on surface area), no use of extra materials (dumbbells, kettle bells) and extensive disinfection between classes. Please bring your own towel, use the provided disinfection gel and don’t stay too long after class. Together we do everything we can to create the safest possible sports climate.
