As we reopen the facility, the safest way to manage capacity, enhanced cleaning and current Public Health protocols is through online booking of all available activities. It also enables people to guarantee their workout time.
When creating our activity booking time slots, we considered things like square footage of each area as it relates to social distancing; staggering start times to reduce the number of people in hallways at any given time, and adequate time for cleaning between time slots. As we reopen, we'll continue to monitor our booking strategy and use your feedback to help update our procedures where needed.
