COVID-2019 UPDATE: 7/30/2021

Per the Governor’s Directive (Directive 45), effective Friday, July 30th, masks are required when indoors whether a person is vaccinated or not. We have been told by OSHA that there are no exclusions for gyms or while working out. They do NOT need to be worn when OUTSIDE.

Therefore, effective Friday July 30th the following will be in effect:

Fitness Members: Masks MUST be worn at all times inside the building, including while working out. Face shields do not replace face masks. Masks do NOT need to be worn for outdoor classes.

Before & After School/Summer Camp Program: Youth MUST wear and bring their own masks. Face shields do not replace masks. Masks will be worn indoors but can be dropped for our outdoor activities.

Child Watch: Face Masks must be worn by all youth who will be attending school (Kindergarten and up). Younger children DO NOT need to wear a face mask.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update our policies should there be any changes. As always, we appreciate your support of the Family Center.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW OUR OTHER COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES AS LISTED BELOW. 

The safety of our members, program participants and staff is our priority. With that, there will be new routines and expectations for both staff and members. We will follow the Governor’s orders, C.D.C. and industry recommendations as we determine the best practices.  As information is updated and possibly changes, some of these procedures may also change.

Most importantly, we want EVERYONE to stay & be HEALTHY! But to also STAY OPEN we need your cooperation.

YOU CAN COUNT ON US TO:

  • All staff will be trained on the guidelines to operate our center.
  • Intensify our cleaning routine! Extra staff hours have been added as we clean throughout the day.
  • Provide additional disinfectant and hand sanitation stations. We use EPA registered disinfectant.
  • We have installed new hands-free paper towel, soap and sanitation dispensers!
  • Make sure that all our staff are healthy! We will ask those that are sick or have been in contact with someone with COVID, to stay home and/or get tested as is appropriate. We will be checking each staff member’s temperature at the start of their shift.
  • Wear masks as we interact with our members.
  • Maintain a 6-foot distance between members and co-workers.
  • We will be monitoring the number of the people in our building to keep within capacity limits.

We need your HELP to PLEASE:
