COVID-19 Adjustments and Safe Return Plan

Things To Know Before Your Visit

Please be patient and know that some of the procedures and guidelines may change as we progress through our reopening process.

If you have a question not answered below or need more information, please contact us at 608-245-3690.

Stay Home If Sick

Please do not visit if you are feeling unwell or have symptoms of COVID-19.

Physical Distancing

Please keep at least 6' apart at all times from others not in your household.

Face Coverings

Face coverings are required when indoors, including while using the gym and exercise room (Public Health Madison & Dane County Emergency Order #13). Face covering means a piece of cloth or other material that is worn to cover the nose and mouth completely. A face covering must be secured to the head with ties, ear loops, or elastic bands that go behind the head and must fit snuggly but comfortably against the side of the face. Cloth face coverings must be made with two or more layers of breathable fabric that is tightly woven (i.e., fabrics that do not let light pass through when held up to a light source). A face covering does not include bandanas, single layer neck gaiters, face shields, goggles, scarves, ski masks, balaclavas, shirt or sweater collars pulled up over the mouth and nose, or masks with slits, exhalation valves, or punctures. Masks will be available for staff and users who do not bring their own.
