What We’re Doing About Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated 5/19/2020 at 11:44am

We would like to share with you how we are proceeding in regards to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and how you can help us support mitigating the risk of spreading this illness and other illnesses within our community and also help us stay afloat during this time.

The information here is based on current CDC,  American Circus Educators Association, and the Texas Department of Health and Human Services recommendations and on recommendations and legal orders from the City of Austin and Travis County.

The decisions we are making as a business are informed by the above metrics and guidelines, as well as feedback from our staff, students, and community at large.

We have switched to all online classes for the time being. While we are aware that as of May 18th gyms are allowed to open in Texas with certain restrictions, we are still not convinced of the wisdom of this in our particular case and are also not comfortable that we have processes in place to keep our staff and students safe at this time.

For current news on our studio closure, future events, online classes, and ways to support us, please visit our closure page. For the most up to date news on COVID-19 and official recommendations, please visit the city of Austin’s coronavirus page and the resources listed there.

If you would like to reach out about other ways you can support Sky Candy, or other ways we can support you, please do not hesitate to contact us. This is a difficult and unprecedented time for everyone, but we have faith that with a concerted community effort, we can minimize the detrimental long term impacts.

As the situation is emergent, with new information coming out daily, we plan on issuing follow-up messages to keep everyone updated. In the meanwhile, if you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out to us at frontdesk@skycandyaustin.com.

Thank you so much for being part of our community. We hope that in working together to flatten the curve, we can minimize the spread of COVID-19.
