Individuals will continue to go through a check-in process before being allowed to use the facility. Hand sanitizer and handwashing stations are available throughout the facility.

Individuals will need to arrive dressed in the appropriate attire for their desired activity as the locker rooms are unavailable, with the exception of restroom and hand washing purposes.

Bath and sweat towels are unavailable.

Aquatics Center users will need to bring a personal towel from home. The deck showers are available for use to rinse off before and after using the pool. This remains an important step in protecting the chemistry of the pool.

Equipment towels and disinfectant spray are made available for use.

As stated above, Face Coverings are required unless actively working out.

Individuals will be asked to sign a COVID-19 Waiver, agreeing to a small series of illness special policies put in place to determine facility entry eligibility, as mandated by the New Health Order.

Front Desk staff will check to see if the desired workout area is available. If the area is at capacity, the individual will be directed to wait until a specified time at which the area becomes available.

Anyone who meets the illness policies on the COVID-19 Waiver is asked to stay home until such a time they are not in violation of the agreed-upon policies.

If an individual would like to change to a different area of the facility, they are required to check-in with the Front Desk to determine if there is space available in the desired area.

Work out sessions are restricted to one (1) hour.

Six (6) feet of distance must be maintained while working out.

Staff will be present to kindly remind individuals to create appropriate distancing if they observe patrons working out too close to one another. This is not only for the health and safety of everyone in the facility, but will also allow us to remain open and serving the community.

Individuals are required to check out at the Front Desk upon departure.

Staff will continue to go through a similar procedure as individuals.

If a staff person is deemed ineligible, they will not be allowed to work until they can meet the eligibility criteria.

Staff are required to check out at the Front Desk upon departure.

Staff are required to wear a mask while at work excepting certain criteria present in the Health Order.

Staff will be monitoring all workout areas to be sure the capacity caps are not exceeded.

The Cardio Studio & Weight Room are limited to 12 participants between the two spaces.
