Galaxy Kids Code Club is a place where children and youth come to learn computer programming and other technology skills via classes, camps, and workshops. Additionally, there is a retail component offering educational toys, specialty apparel, and tech gadgets.

The below outlines the procedures and policies that will be imposed in order to comply with state and local health orders and keep all of our customers safe.

Class sizes will be limited to comply with the maximum occupancy limits of the studio as well as any limits imposed on groups. Students who we are not able to accommodate in the studio will have the option to participate virtually. Occupancy limits will be posted on the front door if required by state and/or local COVID guidelines.

This plan will be updated periodically to be consistent with current California State and Contra Costa Contra guidelines.

General Safety and Health Protocols
  • While occupancy limits for business remain in place, the viewing area/lobby will remain closed. This means adult care givers must drop their children off for class/camp and pick them up at the conclusion of class/camp. Only class attendees and customers shopping in the retail store will be allowed inside the studio.
  • No food will be allowed inside the studio; students may bring water only in a spill proof container.
  • Student worktables will be spaced at least 3 ft apart and boundaries marked to maintain social distancing.
  • Pathways to the entrance/exit and the restroom will be marked to maintain social distancing.
  • Signage is posted to remind students, staff, and customers of social distancing and good hygiene.
  • Social distancing plan has been shared with all staff, and is posted on the doors and on our website at galaxykidscodeclub.com/covid19-protocols.
  • Instructors and staff will wear masks and/or face shields at all times. Masks will be worn whenever close contact with a student is necessary. Face shields may be worn alone (without a mask) when the instructor/staff member is more than 6 ft from any student.
  • All adults and youth older than 2 years are required to wear face masks or cloth face coverings at all times. This includes family members and caregivers waiting outside to drop-off or pick-up students.
  • If a student starts to exhibit symptoms of COIVD-19 while in the studio, their emergency contact will be asked to come and pick the child up immediately.
  • Students should only bring personal items that are absolutely necessary (such as medication). All personal items will be kept in the students designated work area.
  • Students and staff members will use hand sanitizer upon entering the studio and before they leave the studio.
  • The restroom is closed to the public. Students only will be allowed to use the restroom for emergencies during class. Adult caregivers should encourage their children to use the restroom at home before coming to class in order to minimize trips to the bathroom.
  • In order to reduce use of shared equipment, students will be asked to bring their own headphones. Only computers and mouse will be provided at the studio.
Cleaning Protocols
  • The studio and bathrooms are cleaned and disinfected in entirety daily either before or after classes.
  • In addition to the daily cleanings, bathroom sink, toilet handles, and door handles will be sanitized with a disinfectant spray or wipe after each use.
  • All high touch surfaces including computers and manipulatives are wiped down with either an alcohol wipe or an EPA approved disinfectant after each class. Computers and tablets will be cycled after each class to allow them to “breath” for at least 2 hours before being used again by another student.
  • In addition to the main HVAC air filter, the studio has been equipped with two high quality portable air purifiers that completely filter all the air in the studio every 12 minutes.

Reporting Plan

In the event that a child, youth, customer, or staff person has COVID-19 infection confirmed by a positive COVID-19 test, Galaxy Kids Code Club will work with the Contra Costa County Health Services to determine appropriate next steps. All reporting protocols set by the county health department will be followed and the studio population will be notified accordingly while maintaining HIPPA regulations. If it is necessary to close the studio, all classes and camps will revert to the virtual format until we can safely reopen.
