Community Center Limited Opening – Evenings beginning October 12
As COVID-19 continues to change almost everything we do including how we operate the Community Center, we are going to try limited evening activities at the Center starting Monday, October 12, 2020. We recognize the need for activities, and we intend to do our best to provide a safe atmosphere to those who choose to participate but we need your help.
In our phased approach to add activity to our Community Center, we will only be open for evening gym use and exercise classes at this time. We are required to follow the Governor’s “Responsible RestartOhio – Gyms, Dance Instruction Studios, and Other Personal Fitness Venues” guidelines. You will notice some changes at the Community Center. Signage to inform you of our required changes as well as reminding all of us of those essential things to help control the spread of the virus. You will also see an abundance of hand sanitizer and cleaning materials that will be available for everyone’s protection. Face coverings are required within the Center before and after the “active” portion of the exercise classes and gym use. You will need to provide your own face covering. We have also reduced the capacity of classes to observe social distancing requirements.
EVERYONE is required to check in at the Front Desk so that we can obtain current contact information for the possibility of contact tracing if that necessity arises. Please be patient as this is new for all of us and will take time. As required by State and Federal agencies, we ask that you observe six feet of space between fellow attendees during your visit. We ask that you self-asses your physical health before coming to the Center. Pay attention to signs that you may have COVID-19. Symptoms include one or several of the following: cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell. Unfortunately, these signs are very similar to the common flu or other illnesses. Anyone experiencing any of these symptoms or have been exposed to someone with the virus is asked to stay at home. Please do not risk the health of your friends or neighbors, let’s try to keep everyone around you safe!
