Welcome 5 29 21

As of Saturday, May 29, based on guidance from the CDC, the Chatham Board of Health, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, fully vaccinated members and staff are no longer required to wear masks at Chatham Works.

We’re delighted to be able to say that - thanks to everyone’s mindfulness and cooperation - there have been a grand total of ZERO known cases traced to Chatham Works. And we want to keep things that way.

Click here to learn more about the changes that will be going into effect as of 5/29.

Continue reading below to learn more about how we've managed the pandemic to date.



BACKGROUND:

As our members can attest, we've taken COVID seriously since before the initial shutdown in March, 2020.

In a recent member survey we concluded on 4/29/21:

  • 95% of our members said they strongly feel that we've acted in the best interests of our members and staff as we navigate COVID.
  • 82% said they were fully vaccinated, 12% said they were partially vaccinated, and 97% said they planned to get fully vaccinated.


A NOTE ABOUT VENTILATION:

As "the science" has evolved, it's become increasingly accepted that spread via surface contact is quite rare, and that transmission happens mostly through the air.

We believe it's fair to say that we have better ventilation than most commercial buildings (and vastly better ventilation than most fitness centers).

  • Our facility benefits from having many windows which give it excellent natural ventilation.
  • We augment this by placing exhaust fans in windows during classes to create negative pressure.
  • In addition, our HVAC system automatically mixes in 20% fresh air.

Researchers have recommended using CO2 monitors to gauge the level of exhaled air in indoor spaces. Every single time we've measured CO2 in our facility - even during our most intense classes - our CO2 readings have always come back as "LOW".

Maintaining the health and safety of our staff and members remains our #1 priority. And making sure that people feel safe while in our building is "mission critical" for our business. Therefore we will refuse entry to - or remove - anyone who is unwilling to abide by our policies.

Therefore we strongly encourage you to book ahead of time.

Wash/sanitize your hands well and often, including:
