What about lockers, locker rooms, & cabanas - will they be open?
Answer: A limited number of locker rooms & cabanas will be available. Social distancing guidelines need to be followed.
What will the new check-in process be like?
Answer: The set of entrance doors (to the north of the fountain/river) are clearly marked with MEMBER ENTRANCE signs. All members will need to use this set of doors to enter the facility.
The south doors of the fountain/river doors are to be used to exit the building. These doors have signs on them as well.
We kindly ask all members to wear a mask when entering and exiting the facility, and while not working out.
When you walk in, a Welcome Desk attendant will greet you. On your first visit you will need to sign an updated liability waiver, ask you a few question regarding your health, if you have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. Your temperature will be taken at this time as well.
From there you will proceed to the Control Desk where an attendant will greet you, ask what area you plan to be working out in, and check you in. Due to capacity limits, we need to know what venue you will be in so we can keep track of the number of people in each venue. Please note - we do not foresee any issues with being over capacity.
Once you finish your workout - please let the attendants at the Control Desk know you are leaving. Again - this helps us to know the number of members in the facility. Please watch for exit signs both at the Control Desk and the doors.
Has your staff been trained regarding cleaning procedures?
Answer: We have taken all necessary steps and requirements to re-open. COVID-19 disinfectants have been purchased, our staff has been trained regarding new cleaning procedures, and more hand sanitizing stations have been installed. In addition, social distancing measures has been taken into account. Pieces of equipment have been moved to allow them to be used while some have been marked as unavailable until the distancing requirements change.
