Update: Master Ding Academy HQ

Hope that you are all well and safe.

Good news! Following the second lockdown in November 2020, the Government have recently announced the lifting of some restrictions and gyms can now re-open as from December 3rd. The Academy HQ will be opened on this date.

The previous MDA Covid-19 guideline set up in accordance to the Government Health & Safety guideline must still be followed when attending class. If there have been any changes in the previous completed MDA Pre-screening form, please ensure you let us know immediately.

To ensure the safety of MDA students and instructors, if you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home and do not attend the Tai Chi class until you get a negative result.

For your information, the main symptoms of coronavirus are:

a. high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

b. new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

c. loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

Hope to see you all back in class on Thursday, 3rd December.

Be alert, take care and stay safe.
