HENDERSON (KTNV) — We love our kids but let's be honest, they can be pretty gross. They touch everything in sight and in this day and age that's scary. 13 Action News Anchor Tricia Kean takes us inside a Las Vegas valley business keeping things clean in order to keep your kids safe.
THUMBS UP FOR CLEANLINESS
"I was really impressed with what they're doing," said Las Vegas valley grandmother, Mary.
That's a thumbs up for FLIPnOUT Xtreme when it comes to cleanliness.
"I haven't seen anything that would cause concern for me," said Shane, a father of three.
The indoor trampoline park has new procedures in place at it's Summerlin and Henderson locations. It starts the moment you walk through the doors.
"When we came in they checked our temperatures and had hand sanitizer," Shane explained. Hand sanitizing stations are also placed throughout the facilities.
General Manager James Phelps says they're only allowing half capacity in order to encourage social distancing.
They're also cleaning around the clock.
SANITIZE ALL THE EQUIPMENT
"I constantly have two people on staff, that is their position now," said James. "They walk around and clean, they sanitize, they wipe up."
Plus, at the top of every hour, guests are asked to stop for a few minutes so staff can sanitize all the equipment.
James says they're also requiring everyone over the age of nine to wear a mask.
Shane says it's an adjustment that he's okay with.
"My oldest daughter already said she's having a hard time breathing. But I think she would be having a hard time breathing anyway. She's running around jumping on trampolines. So I don't think it's unique to the place as much as just the fact that we're doing something physical," said Shane.
ASK ABOUT NEW PROCEDURES
So here's the bottom line: Wherever you go, don't be afraid to ask management what steps they're taking to protect your kids.
Ask about cleaning procedures and make sure face masks and social distancing are being enforced.
"Better safe than sorry and making sure we're following all the mandates," said James, "and doing everything we can to be a responsible business in our community."
Grandma Mary says that's all you can ask for. In the end, you have to decide what's best.
"I feel really safe bringing my granddaughter here," she said.
"I think they're doing everything they can to mitigate any transfer of germs," added Mary. "You just have to trust your instincts and go with what feels right for you and your family."
