Sun Dragon Vaccination Policy

As an entity, Sun Dragon prioritizes a welcoming and healthy environment for all of our community members. Maintaining adequate immunization rates is critical to preventing disease outbreaks and ensuring the health of all Sun Dragon Participants.

COVID Vaccination Policy (effective Feb 28, 2022)

Per CDC guidelines, Sun Dragon staff is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To enter the dojo space, you must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 

No exemptions to this policy will be approved.

COVID Close Contact Guidelines

For Sun Dragon purposes, exposure is being in close proximity with an infected person in a poorly ventilated space for 15 minutes. Living with family members who are infected, eating lunch with someone who is infected, talking face-to-face with an infected person for fifteen minutes, are all examples of close exposure.  

We will always let you know if someone in a class you've attended tests positive for Covid. If that happens and you were in prolonged contact with the individual (for instance, if you were partnered with them for fifteen minutes or you were in a carpool with them), please wear a mask in the dojo and monitor for symptoms for at least five days and then let us know if you test positive. Here are some guidelines in terms of attending class after you've tested positive for Covid:

  • Please let us know as soon as possible if you've tested positive and you've been in classes at the dojo.  We want to make sure we keep all of our families aware of what's going on.
  • If you test positive, please stay away from the dojo for five days.  After five days, if you are asymptomatic, please rejoin us.  Getting a Covid test after five days would be an extra level of safety if you have access to tests, though post Covid tests often show up as positive long after you are no longer shedding virus.

These guidelines are not perfect and we depend on you being cautious and conscientious in order to keep your fellow students as safe as possible.  This is the reason we have the Zoom classes as options--you are welcome to train in Zoom, even if you've tested positive, as long as you're not feeling symptomatic and it would be bad for your health.  And, of course, you can watch class on Zoom, even if you don't feel up to participating.

Health Safety Policy (all other non-Covid vaccinations)

Entering students will not be allowed to register for classes, even during trial sessions, until attesting that the Participant has received immunizations per CDC and AISD guidelines. Participants are required to fill out a Medical Waiver before their trial class and/or workshop, which contains a field to attest your immunization status.

Medical Exemption:

You are strongly encouraged to consult with a physician about the need for immunizations before requesting an exemption. All students must comply with this requirement except those who meet the qualifications for medical exemption.

Before you will be allowed to register for classes without vaccinations, Sun Dragon’s administration must receive a signed affidavit or certificate signed by a physician who is licensed to practice medicine in the United States, which states that, in the physician’s opinion, a particular vaccine would be injurious to your health and well-being.
