Gyms and fitness centres have been given the green light to reopen on June 8th, with pandemic-related protocols in place.
Guidelines call for a limit on the number of patrons inside the facility and other safety measures. In order to manage who is coming in and when an online booking system has been set up to ensure that the proper numbers are being followed.
“We will do a reservation system by the hour, so people can book their hour and come in, and after each hour, there will be a half-hour slot for our team to do some thorough cleaning,” said program manager, Erin Wilson.
Patrons will be screened upon arrival and asked a few questions as per the Operational Health and Safety Guidelines. Space between workout stations have either increased or a machine has been put into ‘not in use.’ Drinking fountains and change rooms will be closed.
Wilson added, “Fitness classes that were previously happening virtually will now be in person with the exception of Chair Yoga and Easy Stretch class, which is a class that is geared to seniors. We made that choice because of their vulnerability, and we want to allow them the option of staying home if they so choose.”
