We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and would like to keep you all updated on what we are doing to keep our H-Kore community safe and what we are asking you to do.

The beauty of a small tight-knit community like ours is that we are all friends and can rely on each other to be truthful and not put anyone at risk.
To ensure our studios remain safe please do not put anyone at risk by coming to the studio if you have:

  • Returned to Hong Kong in the last 14 days, or you have been in contact with someone who has returned to Hong Kong in the last 14 days
  • Experienced flu-like symptoms like coughing, sneezing, fever, diarrhoea or shortness of breath in the last 14 days, or if in the last 14 days you have been in contact with anyone who has these symptoms
  • Been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case within the last 14 days, or you have been in contact with someone else who has been in contact with a confirmed case in the last 14 days.

It is a requirement that anyone who visits either studio wear a face mask. You may remove this during class but it must be worn in and around the studio.

EXTRA PREVENTATIVE MEASURES TO KEEP YOU SAFE:

  • An external company has visited both studios to spray every surface in every room with BioKill® Safe Sanitizer. Surfaces include but are not limited to megaformers (on and under), handheld equipment, bathrooms, lockers and reception areas. This service will be carried out regularly.

BioKill® Safe Sanitizer is a non-toxic organic replacement for chlorine. It does not poison the organism but acts mechanistically by destroying the cellular membrane of a micro-organism (cell wall intrusion). The efficacy of BioKill® Safe Sanitizer is due the unique blend of bioflavonoids and organic acids in the formulation. Includes Staphylococcus Aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Legionella pneumophila, Salmonella, Lysteria and Brettanomyces.
MRSA, H1N1, Pr. Vulgaris, Aspergillus Niger and Aspergillus brasiliensis also can be killed up to 99.99% with specialized concentration.

  • In addition to regular cleaning and disinfecting by our in-house cleaners, we have engaged an external cleaning company to complete regular deep cleaning and disinfecting of our studios (every room and surface). Classes will not be affected as cleaning will occur after business hours.
  • We have removed the red fabric cloths at the back of the megaformer machines and replaced them with single use paper towels and bottles filled with Sanilution Bio Air & Surface Disinfection agent (Rapid and effective pathogens kill - 99.9999% in less than 1 minute)
  • We have suspended the use of water fountains in both studios. Please remember to bring a full bottle so you can hydrate before, during and after class. If you forget, water can be bought for $20.
  • We will not be accepting cash in either studio and will not be running "tabs" so please add a card to your account to make purchases. You can remove your card at anytime and then add it back when you need.
  • All our staff are adhering to the same rules as clients (outlined above).
  • All our staff have been asked to wear masks in the studio and on the way to the studio. On arrival to the studio they must sanitise their hands and have their temperature taken.
  • We have changed the start times of some of our classes to allow for additional cleaning. 1:05pm weekday classes in Central now start at 1:10pm. 10:30am CircuitKore on Saturday in Quarry Bay now starts at 10:15am.
  • All cleaning products used in the studio are hospital-grade.
  • Our cleaner hours have been extended so surfaces are cleaned and sanitised even more frequently.
