Our 10 COVID-Safe Floor plans for Large Sushi Classes

There's no point in hosting large sushi events with a threat of COVID-19, unless strict measures are in place to drastically reduce the threat of spreading the virus.  Large sushi classes require the following:

1.  There must be a minimum of a 6-foot distance (we recommend 7-feet to be sure) between parties.  This includes front-to-back and side-to-side.

2.  We recommend utilizing large rooms where a 50% seating capacity or less can be accommodated and it is recommended that ten (10) people are allowed, at maximum, per the special event rule...unless the room's capacity and seat requirements are strictly enforced for everyone's safety.

3.  Suitable ventilation (not re-circulated room air) to ensure an airborne concern is reduced.

4.  All surfaces (tables and chairs) are disinfected before and after the class.  It is recommended to clean/wash each surface with soap and water.  If a chemical disinfectant is preferred: Click here.

5.  The instructor and assistant wear face masks and gloves while the room is occupied.

6.  Hand Sanitizer is offered to all attendees and the instructor and assistant use the sanitizer consistently through the process of the class.

7.  All ingredient prepping occurs with gloves and tongs.  No bare hands whatsoever.  No exceptions.

8.  Announcements for COVID-19 concerns are made before class begins to ensure everyone is informed.

9.  Attendees of the sushi class are notified to use the restroom (to wash their hands) and relieve themselves before class begins to ensure everyone remains at their seats for the duration of the class.  This is merely a recommendation to ensure that small groups of people are not standing and walking past other attendees, reducing COVID risks of spreading any potential virus.

10.  The instructor and assistant are more than happy to take all photos for each person and can email their pics to them after the class is over.  This ensures that each attendee stays seated while ensuring great photos of the sushi class are obtained safely.

Please review an example of a seat diagram below.
