UPDATE

Hi just to let you know that we have decided to shut the clubs down for two weeks as a precautionary
measure because BJJ is a contact sport.

We are doing our bit as a club to help flatten the curve of the virus in New Zealand. Flattening the curve means limiting the rapid spread of the virus by reducing physical contact with people, washing our hands regularly and avoiding large crowds.

Like we have said before this is all a precautionary measure only. We have made this decision now because we can, many other clubs might follow a similar approach or might likely in the near future. 
This is to the health of our people, and in fact of all New Zealanders forefront in our minds. 

We feel that we must play our role and take a more proactive action in containing the spread of the virus in Aotearoa. 
Our number one priority is to protect the health and wellbeing of our people and their families.
How can you help?
CLUB RULES:

- If you have travelled self isolate yourself and those that travelled for three weeks, that means not coming in contact with others that have not travelled with you i.e. your kids, partner, going out shopping etc. Please do not put strain on the already overloaded health workers.

- If you had family coming from overseas and you have been in contact with them above rule applies. - Avoid large gathering if you see too many people at some places, avoid that area come back later.

- If you are sick stay home, do not put strain on your immune system or pass it onto others. The COVID-19 virus attacks the elderly and people with immunity issues i.e. when you are sick. Consider taking a flu vaccination.

This is in place for the next two weeks, at which point we will reassess them. 
In the meantime can you all register your interest with HELLO CLUB with $0 so we can keep in touch and keep a place for you when we reopen. https://aucklandbjj.helloclub.com/register…

Thank you for understanding and take good care. Remember, these are only our thoughts follow the normal NZ NATIONAL PANDEMIC PLAN. Please have a chat to your instructors if you have any concerns.
