As we re-open our facilities after the coronavirus quarantine, we must implement the highest practices and standards to ensure the health and safety of our members, team, and community. Our purpose is building the health and fitness of our community and our response to the COVID-19 epidemic reflects that purpose. Several factors become apparent as we reopen our doors:
- We will not be going back to a “business as usual” model.
- We must be intentional and methodological in minimizing the risk and stopping the spread of the virus.
- Fitness, health, and wellness is essential in the fight against this disease. It has been clear that there is an inordinate impact on vulnerable (unhealthy) populations.
- The isolating effects of social distancing has shown us the value of the community and belonging members find at The Union.
Here is what Phase 1 of the reopening will look like:
Friday, May 22, Park Oaks reopens with 5 total classes. We have determined that our large yoga room can hold 20 people with adequate social distancing. Our CrossFit space can hold 9 athletes for traditional CrossFit classes and 18 athletes for bootcamp style classes. The number of classes on Friday and Saturday are intentionally limited so we can observe and review our operations and procedures and their effectiveness. We will be closed Sunday, May 24 to adjust as needed. There are a lot of unknowns we will need to address. An example being, what is our burn rate on cleaning supplies? Can we keep these in stock for 1, 2, and 3 studios? We will reopen Park Oaks on Memorial Day.
The Tentative Schedule for these first few days is below. Please note that this is a TEST WEEK and not necessarily reflective of our permanent schedule therefore bear with us. We will learn a lot this week and adjust the schedule and our practices moving forward. Obviously, the goal is to offer more classes at more locations as we are safely able.
