Happy Canada Day! While I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather and the day off, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to be safe. Here are a few tips to keep you and your family healthy besides the standard "wash your hands and don't touch your face."
Pay attention to the floor! It can be hard to remember to social distance. Public spaces (including our dojo) are now being marked with boxes, arrows, and other markers to indicate where to stand and which direction to travel in.
Put your mask on in the mirror and leave it be when you are out. If it slips off your nose, bunches up around your chin, or if you touch the face-covering, you are no longer safe or responsible. Make sure you and your children know how to put on your masks/face coverings properly. https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/when-and-how-to-use-masks
Reach out to supports and seek help if you need it. Human connection is a basic need every one of us has to different degrees. If you or your family members feel as if your mental health has been negatively impacted by the extended quarantine talk about it, support each other and ask for help.
Finally, please review our safety procedures below to help us safely welcome you all back to the dojo.
