COVID-19 Information from Club Fit
Important information and links from Club Fit regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
Per NY State mandate, we will be closing the Club as of 8:00 pm March 16, 2020, and remaining closed until further notice. Members will not be billed dues while we are closed and will receive a two week credit upon return. Please check back for further updates. We appreciate your understanding. We will continue to update our members of any changes as needed. Make sure you have installed the Club Fit app to receive the most up-to-date-alerts.
Help us help YOU. Read an important letter from IHRSA (International Health & Racquet Sports Association), currently working to get health clubs included in government stimulus programs, so we can be here for you in the future.
We have additional informative links at the bottom of this page to help you stay informed.
We know you have concerns. As always, our priority is protecting the health of our members.
As Bill Beck wrote to our members on March 5th, we are continuing to add extra cleaning measures at this time as a precaution.
First and foremost, to keep our staff and members safe, if you answer yes to any of the below, please plan to join us at a later time.
- Have you traveled to a country for which the CDC has issued a Level 2 or 3 travel designation within the last 14 days?
- Have you had contact with any Persons Under Investigation (PUIs) for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, OR with anyone with known COVID-19?
- Do you have any symptoms of a respiratory infection (e.g., cough, sore throat, fever, or shortness of breath)?
If you have the slightest doubt or concern as to your current health status, play it safe, stay home, and rest.
Thank you for your cooperation, from all of us at Club Fit. We look forward to seeing you in the Club when you are feeling better!
Regarding transmission of COVID-19:
- How is the virus spread?
Transmission facts from the CDC:
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
- Can the COVID-19 virus spread through pools and hot tubs?
There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs.
- How can I protect myself?
Handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol (as we use at Club Fit).
