RED (Control) Policies

CLICK HERE for screening form

Athletes participating at CheerPride must complete a COVID-19 Screening form EACH DAY they participate in practices/lessons/classes at the gym. The form confirms the following:

  • The individual is not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 - difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, chest pain or pressure, loss of speech or movement, fever, dry cough, tiredness, aches and pains, sore throat, diarrhea, conjunctivitis, headache, loss of taste or smell, a rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes
  • Has not traveled outside of Canada in the last 14 days
  • Has not been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 to the best of their knowledge
  • Has not tested positive or are awaiting test results for COVID-19

Teams have been divided in to small groups (maximum 10) as per government guidelines of allowing only 10 participants per facility. Unfortunately at this time we are unable to provide Tumbling classes due to the capacity limits in the gym.

Private Lessons are still available and will run as scheduled. Athletes must wear masks the entire time.


High Risk Individuals
Those individuals who are considered high risk (have had direct exposure to someone with COVID-19) are required to self isolate for 2 weeks in accordance with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit. They can only return providing they have not developed any signs or symptoms and receive a negative Covid-19 test.
This is only for that specific athlete and NOT their sibling should that be the case.  According to the Health Unit it also means if a parent/guardian of an athlete is considered "High Risk" due to something at work, or their Covid-19 Alert App going off, they must self isolate for 2 weeks, but the athlete is not considered High Risk.


Athletes will continue to wear masks while entering and exiting the gym. While in the Red Zone athletes will be required to wear masks at ALL TIMES.


In the case of a positive test

If an athlete/staff member tests positive for COVID-19 anyone who may have been exposed at CPA during the time the athlete/staff member was in the gym will be asked to get a COVID-19 test and will not be able to return to the gym until a negative test is presented to CPA.
