Reopening Phase 5 September 2021

Reopening Phase #5
 
Dear Shirlee’s Fitness Club Members, 
 
 
Thank you for your support and patience of our gym during the pandemic. When we issued Phase 4 re-opening a couple months ago, we said that we would re-evaluate by September 15 to see if we could make changes. Due to the rising cases of Delta variant of Covid, the CDC has issued guidelines recommending that all of our patrons continue to wear masks, maintain social distancing, and get vaccinated if they can. We understand that these restrictions are not ideal, and we appreciate your cooperation over the last year. While we wish we could return to normal, unfortunately, the new variant is highly contagious, and even people who have been vaccinated can get it. To protect the health of our members and employees, we will continue to keep the same club hours and the same safety precautions and policies in place until January 2022. By then, we hope to be in a better situation to open up more safely. As much we would like to go back to normal, your health and our employees’ health is our number one priority! We appreciate your understanding during the ongoing pandemic.  
 
Please read the following updated policy and guidelines:
