These policies are subject to change as the situation continues to evolve. We appreciate your cooperation with these temporary policies and we look forward to being able to relax them over time!
- AS OF JULY 30, 2020 MASKS MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES WHEN WALKING IN THE GYM OUTSIDE YOUR DESIGNATED AREA, OR ACTIVELY WORKING OUT.
- Classes will be limited to 24 spaces to allow for 6+ ft distancing.
- Athletes MUST reserve their spot in class through Zenplanner – anyone who did not reserve their spot will be turned away, no exceptions. Do not text the coach and ask them to reserve your spot if you missed the reservation cut-off. Coaches will be responsible for making sure that everyone who attends class has been signed in. We are required to keep a log of who was in attendance at every class as well as who coached for contact tracing purposes, so that is why reserving and signing in will be so important.
- Kids are now allowed back in the gym. If you are able to make alternate arrangements for them during your gym time, please do so. However if you are unable to do so, we ask that kids wear masks and stay in the kids area at all times unless they are using the restroom.
- Athletes are asked to remain in the small gym or outside/car until 5 minutes before class. Please be ready when class begins. That means have your gear ready and if you need to mobilize, do so at home prior to coming. Please don’t be late, as it will be important to keep the classes running on schedule! You are also asked not to hang out and socialize after class in order to avoid having more people in the gym than allowed. Feel free to hang out outside. YOU MUST MASK UP INSIDE THE GYM!
- People from the same “germ pod” (for example, people who live in the same household) may workout closer together in order to save space. But please make sure that your germ pod is still distanced away from others.
- Please remain 6ft apart when walking around the space.
- Windows and doors can remain open whenever possible to encourage natural air flow. Fan will be on to ensure air flow.
- No chalk buckets. If you want to use chalk, please purchase your own – chalk blocks, liquid chalk or chalk balls are available in the Gym or on Amazon and plenty of other sites.
- Be mindful of people across from you – for example when using the rig, stagger across the lifting platforms and face out so that you are not facing each other.
- You will be asked to sanitize EVERY piece of equipment that you use before putting it back as well as mopping the floor in the area that you worked out in. The more you can all help us with sanitizing, the less we will have to change the class schedule.
- Please clean up after your workout and exit the building in a timely manner so that the gym empties out before the next class comes in.
- Wash hands/use hand sanitizer often.
- Coaches will be asked to sanitize high touch areas (door knobs, computer mouse, FitAid fridge, sink, toilet seat, paper towel and soap dispensers, remotes, etc.) after every class or as feasible.
- Athletes will be asked to NOT touch any remotes or the music tablet.
- All of the above will also apply to open gym times.
- If you are feeling sick, STAY HOME. If you are experiencing any symptoms such as fever (100.0 and above) or chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fatigue, headache, muscle/body aches, runny nose/congestion, new loss of taste or smell, or nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, do NOT come in. Quarantine immediately and get tested!
- If someone in your household is not feeling well, we ask that you refrain from coming in until they have received a negative test.
- If you have knowingly been in contact with someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19, please refrain from coming to the gym for 10 days to 2 weeks. We will always keep the names of athletes confidential as your privacy is important to us. But it is imperative that we are made aware so that we can let other athletes know that may have been exposed in class.
- It is important that you communicate to us if you have been exposed to someone who tested positive, if you develop symptoms, or if you test positive yourself.
When can you be around others after you had or likely had COVID-19?
For more details visit When You Can be Around Others After You Had or Likely Had COVID-19 | CDC
I think or know I had COVID-19, and I had symptoms.
You can be around others after (all of the following must be true):
- 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
- 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
- Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving*
*Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation
Most people do not require testing to decide when they can be around others; however, if your healthcare provider recommends testing, they will let you know when you can resume being around others based on your test results.
Note that these recommendations do not apply to persons with severe COVID-19 or with severely weakened immune systems (immunocompromised). These persons should follow the guidance below for “I was severely ill with COVID-19 or have a severely weakened immune system (immunocompromised) due to a health condition or medication. When can I be around others?”
I tested positive for COVID-19 but had no symptoms
If you continue to have no symptoms, you can be with others after 10 days have passed since you had a positive viral test for COVID-19. Most people do not require testing to decide when they can be around others; however, if your healthcare provider recommends testing, they will let you know when you can resume being around others based on your test results.
If you develop symptoms after testing positive, follow the guidance above for “I think or know I had COVID-19, and I had symptoms.”
I was severely ill with COVID-19 or have a severely weakened immune system (immunocompromised) due to a health condition or medication. When can I be around others?
People who are severely ill with COVID-19 might need to stay home longer than 10 days and up to 20 days after symptoms first appeared. Persons who are severely immunocompromised may require testing to determine when they can be around others. Talk to your healthcare provider for more information. If testing is available in your community, it may be recommended by your healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider will let you know if you can resume being around other people based on the results of your testing.
Your doctor may work with an infectious disease expert or your local health department to determine whether testing will be necessary before you can be around others.
For Anyone Who Has Been Around a Person with COVID-19
Anyone who has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 should stay home for 10-14 days after their last exposure to that person.
- The best way to protect yourself and others is to stay home for 14 days if you think you’ve been exposed to someone who has COVID-19. Check your local health department’s website for information about options in your area to possibly shorten this quarantine period.
However, anyone who has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and who meets the following criteria does NOT need to stay home.
- Has COVID-19 illness within the previous 3 months and
- Has recovered and
- Remains without COVID-19 symptoms (for example, cough, shortness of breath)
