Important COVID-19 Information
At Extreme Sandbox, the well-being of our clients and staff remains our top priority. Like other responsibly-minded businesses, we are closely monitoring updates and information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and state health departments. Extreme Sandbox is still committed to running our business and providing our clients with an amazing and fun heavy equipment experience that meets their guidelines for safety.
We also want to update you on our new policies and practices regarding cleanliness and safety at our sites (updated 5/13/21):
1) Individuals entering the facility will be screened at the front desk upon entry. We ask all clients if they currently have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. Additionally we may ask about whether client is fully vaccinated. Individuals must then wash hands or use hand sanitizer that will be provided.
2) Capacity limits – We are limiting the amount of individuals allowed in our building at a time. Typically we will not have more than (2) separate client groups in the facility at any one time. Groups larger than 10 individuals need to ensure they are part of a scheduled event and our team is aware of the group size. Social distancing will be followed at all times while in the facility.
3) Face masks – We will be requiring that all non-vaccinated individuals over 2 years old wear face masks inside the building, when being loaded/unloaded from equipment, or any time outside when 6 feet of social distancing can not be maintained. We do prefer non-vaccinated clients keep masks on while inside the closed cab of the equipment, to prevent any potential for contamination, however we can make accommodations for operator comfort by request. Per updated CDC guidelines, fully vaccinated individuals will not be required to wear face masks at any time.
4) Equipment use – Equipment is cleaned and sanitized by employees in between all client groups. We additionally provide hand sanitizer and disinfectant available in each piece of equipment that can be used at any time. We ask non-vaccinated clients to wear face masks while inside any of our equipment. We also can provide plastic gloves by request.
5) Employee testing – all Extreme Sandbox employees are regularly tested for COVID-19. Any employees who show signs or symptoms or have had an exposure are quarantined and not allowed to work until clearing CDC guidelines. We have strongly recommended that all of our staff receive the vaccine, but this is not mandatory.
6) Cleaning and Sanitization – our facilities and equipment are cleaned and disinfected after EVERY client group. Furthermore, we will provide hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes for any client or spectator who requests them.
7) Notifications – we ask all clients and spectators to notify us ahead of time if they are showing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or if they have been exposed to anyone who tested positive within the last 14 days. Additionally, we maintain contact info for all visitors to our site and will contact any visitors to notify if there has been a potential exposure at one of our sites.
Thank you for your loyalty to Extreme Sandbox. Please consider us as a fun and safe place to visit.
