Communicable Disease Prevention Plan

Please read our Communicable Disease Prevention Plan prior to attending the studio.


The health and well-being of our clients and staff is of utmost importance to us. Therefore, we ask you to familiarize yourself with the protocols currently in place at our studio prior to attending your appointment.

VPC Communicable Disease Prevention Plan - Updated March 9, 2023


Before You Arrive

Personal non-medical masks must be worn while moving around the studio and in communal areas, including when using shared equipment, in the lobby, dressing room and washrooms.

  • We invite you to remove your mask while at your workout station during group workouts or classes, if you are comfortable doing so.

  • We will ask you to wear a mask during private appointments.

  • Please wear a mask if:

    • you are at high risk for severe illness.

    • you are recovering from COVID-19 and following public health guidelines regarding resuming activities.

    • you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19.


In an effort to limit communal/shared items, bring your own filled water bottle.


Arrive in your exercise clothing when possible. Our spare clothing cupboard will not be available.


Personal responsibility

  • If you are feeling ill for any reason, please cancel your appointment(s) and do not plan to return to the studio until you are fully recovered.

  • As recommended by the Public Health Office for anyone experiencing any illness, please complete the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool:

  • Equipment program clients:

    • Our late cancellation fees will be waived for absences related to sudden onset of symptoms allowing less than 24 hours notice of cancellation.

    • If you are not symptom-free by your next scheduled appointment, please ensure that you give 24-hours notice for any further appointments you may need to cancel.

  • In-studio class clients:

    • In the event that you miss an in-studio class due to illness, you will receive make-up credit which can be used towards a drop-in class (space permitting)


When You Arrive

Studio Access

  • Use hand sanitizer or wash hands immediately upon entering.

  • Please arrive up to 10 minutes prior to the start of your appointment in order to be at your workout station when your appointment begins.

  • Shoes must be removed upon entry and left on the designated shoe rack.

  • Coats may be hung on the hooks in the hallway next to the lobby.

  • Limit front desk interaction; whenever possible communication should be done via phone or email.

    • Contactless payments are preferred. We now have the ability to securely store credit cards on your account for no-contact payments. 



  • Physical distancing is encouraged in the facility. 

  • Single-person occupancy limit applies to bathrooms and change rooms.


Traffic flow

  • When entering or exiting via our front or rear stairwell, please allow people to finish ascending/descending before entering/exiting yourself.

  • Gather any accessories required for your program as soon as you enter and then go directly to your assigned workout station.


Studio Set-up

  • For equipment programs, you will have your own workout station with reformer, mat, and spine corrector for personal use during your appointment.

    • If you choose not to wear a mask while at your workout station:

      • teaching staff reserve the right to verbally cue you.

      • Please use the hooks installed on your cone of cleanliness to “park” your mask while not in use. Please wipe down your cone when you clean your workout station.

  • Shared equipment (Cadillac, chair, etc.) is available for use during Personal Equipment Program group appointments.

  • If you use this equipment, please be aware that you may be asked to limit usage to 2 consecutive exercises if others are waiting.

  • Shared exercise accessories and small props (i.e. balls, bands etc.) are available for use.


Cleaning & Hygiene

VPC Staff

  • Staff will be required to wear non-medical masks while in the studio.

  • VPC staff will not be permitted to work when sick or directed to self-isolate/quarantine.


Equipment and High-Touch Areas 

  • VPC staff will clean and disinfect high-touch areas throughout the day.

  • Please sanitize your hands prior to using shared equipment. If you forget to sanitize your hands, we ask that you clean the equipment once you have completed your exercises.

  • After their Personal Equipment Program appointments, clients will be responsible for cleaning their station and any studio props used, with support from VPC staff.



  • Windows will remain open during operating hours.
