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:
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).
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".
All staff & customers are screened upon entry. (See below for details.)
Indoor Fitness: Masks are required indoors at all times. Outdoor Fitness: Masks are optional provided you have 6+ ft. distancing.
Maintain 6+ ft. spacing at all times.
Clean/disinfect your hands upon entering, when appropriate during your workout, and when you're ready to leave. Properly clean and disinfect all equipment before and after use.
