“The problem, of course, is that kids under 12 can’t be vaccinated yet. Until they can be, the best way to protect them is simple: Vaccinate all the eligible adults and teens around them. ‘The single most important thing parents can do is to get vaccinated and to vaccinate all their kids who are 12 and older,’ Yvonne Maldonado, an epidemiologist and pediatric infectious-disease professor at Stanford Medical School, told me.”
As a parent of a young child who can’t yet get vaccinated, I got my shots as soon as I was eligible and became fully immunized back in May. With the surge in the Delta variant, and for the sake of our young children and anyone else who are vulnerable (e.g., immunocompromised), it is absolutely incumbent on the rest of us to vaccinate.
As best as possible, instructor and student(s) will maintain at least a 6’ distance from one another.
All rental equipment is completely sprayed down w/ Lysol disinfectant spray (EPA approved SARS-CoV-2 disinfectant) after each lesson.
