Addendum to Update November 25th

Per the Interim Guidance for Public Pools & Spas from the North Carolina Department of Health & Human Services, "Patrons are
required to wear cloth face coverings when they are not in the pool." This is great news for all swimmers, water aerobics participants and members doing Physical Therapy in our pools. 

Thank you for your cooperation and support in adhering to these mandates until December 11th. What does this mean? All aquatics participants will wear a mask through the club, locker rooms and when entering the pool deck. Please do not take your mask off until you are ready to enter the pool. Best practice would be to bring a small Ziploc bag with you to place your mask on the pool deck while participating in activities so it will be close to put it back on as you exit the pool.

Important Update November 23rd

Dear ClubWorx Family,

We wanted to update you about the status of the club after our Governor’s announcement of his current executive order. We are doing all we can to remain open for as long as possible.

Since the onset of COVID-19, ClubWorx has continually adapted programming and protocols to go above and beyond in keeping you safe. Effective Wednesday, November 25th at 5pm, all members & staff will be required to wear a face covering at all times in the club, even while working out.

You will also still have your temperature checked upon entry.

We will work hard to enforce all safety protocols to support the physical, emotional and economic health of you our members, our staff and our community as a whole.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask and we appreciate you being a loyal member.

Stay active & stay healthy.
Sam Smith, Owner

Club Policy Update

We are committed to ensuring the highest safety standards for our members and our team to return to a clean and safe environment. In doing so, we need your help. Below are a few additions to our Club Rules and Etiquette. Please follow the below guidelines when you visit the club.

ONLINE RESERVATIONS

In order to make sure we do not go over our club capacity during Phase 2.5, members will need to make online reservations for Group Exercise classes in all studios, the indoor & outdoor pools and the Children's Center. Please do not come without a reservation as you may not be admitted. More information to follow on reservation process soon.

STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK

Studies suggest that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are asymptomatic. Please do not come to the club if you have a fever, a cough, shortness of breath, or even just feel run down. Please don't take a chance - stay home until you feel better. We will be taking no-touch temperature readings for staff and members as they enter the building. Do not use the club if you have had contact with a person who has or is suspected of having COVID-19.

MASK - FACE COVERING

You must wear a mask at all times in all areas of the club, in common areas as well as while working out, effective November 25th at 5pm. You must agree to comply with all local regulations related to wearing a mask indoors. Please bring your own mask due to supply restrictions.

PHYSICAL DISTANCING

Please keep 6 feet between yourself and other members or staff while in the clubs. We have labeled the Group Exercise studios with floor stickers to distance participants 8-10 feet apart while working out. Studio 1 can now hold 18 participants and Studio 2 (The Haven) can now hold 10 participants. The Loft Cycle studio has signs on bikes that cannot be used to enforce our physical distancing as well as machines on the cardio deck. Weight room floor equipment has been space appropriately and signs have been hung to remind members about distancing. Please do not move any weight benches or equipment from their place.

DISINFECTING EQUIPMENT

Upon entering you will be asked to sanitize your hands. While working out, you will be required to disinfect all equipment before and after use with spray disinfectant in the provided bottles. You will notice more sanitation stations throughout the club to make this convenient for our members.

Cleaning & Sanitization Protocols

All disinfectant products are medical–grade and are shown effective in EPA listings related to COVID and other viruses. We have purchased a cordless fogger mister in order to disinfect large surfaces throughout the day and in the overnight hours when we are closed.  In addition, our "Clean Team" will spray all surfaces throughout the club on a nightly basis.

We ask that all members disinfect equipment before and after each use.  We have set up disinfectant stations in workout areas which will include wipes, purell, disinfectant spray, and paper towels. The CDC recommends using the sanitizing spray and paper towels over the wipes. Please use wipes sparingly as there is a national shortage and we only have a limited supply until manufacturers produce more to purchase.

All cleaning products have an EPA number. Below are the sanitizers that we are using including one that has a 1 minute kill time even when not wiped down. You can use the following link to obtain information about any cleaner that we or you may use at home!

https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2-covid-19

Purell Surface Sanitzier with One Minute Kill Time - EPA Reg. #84368-1-84150
Diversey Oxivir Tb Sanitizer - EPA Reg. #70627-56

 

Along with our staff, members will be asked to disinfect all group fitness equipment between classes. In order to make this happen, when classes come back to our schedule we will keep a minimum of 15-20 minutes in between to allow for sanitzation and drying times. All members will be required to sign up online for all group fitness classes. All fitness studios will be stocked with disinfectant stations for members to do their own cleaning as well.

We have placed hand sanitizer dispensers and bottles around the club. Members and staff are required to use sanitizer entering the club and throughout their time in the club. Upon completing a workout, it is recommended that you wash your hands with soap and water.
