Members and staff will be required to wear cloth face coverings when entering and exiting the building and while moving from one location to another. Face coverings may be removed while exercising as long as physical distancing is observed. Face coverings must be worn through the parking lot and until you reach your vehicle.

Locker Rooms
The locker rooms, family changing rooms and club locker rooms will remain closed at this time. Please come prepared for your work out and leave directly after finishing. We also ask that you do not bring any large bags or valuables, as there will be nowhere to store large or valuable items while you complete your workout.

Water Fountains
Please come prepared for your workout with a full water bottle if needed. The only water fountains that will be available are the bottle filling stations.

Cleaning and Sanitation Procedures
There will be several sanitation stations throughout the facility, as well as sanitation materials next to each piece of equipment. Prior to starting and after your workout, we ask members to wash your hands. We also ask that members disinfect equipment before and after each use. However, we will also have fitness attendants that will consistently be wiping down equipment and high traffic areas.

Pre-Screening
All staff and members will self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms prior to admission to the facility. Patrons will be asked if they are currently experiencing fever (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) or a sense of having a fever, a new cough that cannot be attributed to another health condition, new shortness of breath that cannot be attributed to another health condition, new chills that cannot be attributed to another health condition, a new sore throat that cannot be attributed to another health condition, or new muscle aches that cannot be attributed to another health condition or specific activity (such as physical exercise). Anyone experiencing symptoms will not be permitted in the facility. Members will also be asked exposure questions. Have you been in close contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days? Have you been in close contact with an individual who is awaiting test results for COVID-19 in the past 14 days? If the answer is yes to either question, we are not able to permit entry.

As a member, when you scan your key card to enter the facility, you will be agreeing that you are not displaying any of the symptoms noted.

Strength and Cardio Fitness Rooms
All members will enter the fitness floor from the main stairwell or elevator (one at a time unless family). All those exiting the fitness floor will leave utilizing the middle stairwell. There will be signs and arrows for direction. Each room has a specific capacity that will be maintained by staff to ensure physical distancing. Equipment has been spaced out or off limits to ensure the 10 feet guideline. Please do not utilize any equipment that is marked not to be used.

Indoor Track
The track is open for walking and running. In order to maintain physical distancing, only 4 members will be permitted on the track at a time for 30 minutes.
