To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, key changes to the facility will include:

  • Pre-screening prior to entering facility 
  • Pre-booking activities
  • Limited number of users per room

We rely on our staff, cleaners and members of the public to all work together to maintain our standard of cleanliness and safety by doing your part by: staying home with any COVID-19 symptoms, pre-screening prior to entrance, wiping down exercise equipment before and after, wearing face coverings (in change rooms, and other public/transitional areas), and keeping appropriate physical distance from others to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
