So what are we doing at Cartersville Martial Art to keep you safe after opening back up?
We do not like everyone being scared, we teach students to stand strong and be confident but we also do not want to risk anyone's health! Everyday here at CMA we are disinfecting and cleaning to keep everything germ free. We are using bleach to disinfect the training floor regularly, this insures no bacteria, germs or viruses can live on our flooring. We have little contact with our floor other than our feet but again we want to take every precaution for everyones safety.
We will be using a temperal scanner to scan all our guest and students to insure no one has an elevated tempreture.
