Monkey Movers Response
Monkey Movers is closely monitoring the impact
coronavirus is having on the communities in which we
operate. As always, our number one priority is to
protect the health and safety of our staff, customers,
and the wider community.
We have been guided in this effort by the advice of
local, provincial, and national public health
authorities and have a formal plan and measures in
place as part of our individual and collective efforts
to slow and limit the spread of COVID-19.
We are grateful for the resilience, leadership, and
empathy of our staff during this challenging and
stressful time. Even at a time when physical
separation defines interactions between us, the
prevailing strength of our community is more evident
To comply with Public Health Guidelines: This year all windows will be opened with a commercial fan operating on the Gym Bus for optimal air flow.
*An outlet will be needed to supply the fan with power.*
What is Monkey Movers doing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19?
The health and safety of our staff and customers is a top priority. In addition to our standard sanitation procedures, as part of Monkey Mover's response to coronavirus, our staff have:
Increased the frequency of cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfection of equipment and high-touchpoint surfaces.
Continued our high standards of promoting regular and thorough handwashing/alcohol-based hand sanitization and reminding our staff of our best practices for personal hygiene
Trained our staff of current social distancing procedures
Implemented contactless operations
Required any staff who is ill to stay home from work.
Additionally, we are providing scenario-based guidance to staff on how to work through various COVID-19 related situations, and communicating health and safety guidance updates from municipal, provincial and federal health authorities. We will continue to evaluate all safety measures currently in place, and adjust accordingly as we remain focused on the health and safety of our staff and you, our customers.
What does Monkey Movers cleaning regime look like?
Our Gym Buses during the Covid-19 pandemic need to ensure they are protecting our staff and the public by minimizing the risk of spread of infection. This guidance is intended to introduce consistent measures on all gym buses.
The following shall be in place for each Gym Bus/In House Equipment:
• A Sanitation Checklist and schedule for cleanings
• Sufficient sanitizer dispensers and paper towels
• Sufficient cleaning products for daily usage
Our cleaning procedures include cleaning before and after each party/program and wipe downs multiple times a day for festivals/events, particularly in communal areas and at touch points.
Is Monkey Movers allowing staff to wear masks to curtail the spread of COVID-19?
The wearing of non medical masks by Monkey Movers staff are now mandatory. We also require non participating guests to wear DIY masks or face coverings to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Masks are optional for participants.
We continue to review public health guidance to ensure we have the right policies in place to help prevent the spread of the virus.
