FACE MASK POLICY

Mask Protocol While Inside the Facility:

· All members must wear a mask upon entering the facility

· Masks are to remain on throughout facility usage and especially within common areas such as the wellness center, locker room, pool decks, hallways, etc.

· Masks may be removed when exercising on a piece of equipment, but only if the member can do so while socially distant.

For Example: If one member is “spotting” another member while weightlifting, both members must be wearing masks.

Your workout routine may now look like this:
