Club News August 2020
Please note with the continued mandates, the fitness room will remain closed pending the Governor’s update. As for masks, you do not need to wear one at the club, unless you remain indoors, in which case we will ask you to please wear one. In addition, sanitize your hands often and maintain recommended distancing. We are big believers that exercise and sunlight are great contributors to help boost your immune system. Most importantly, if you or anyone in your household is ill, please do not visit the club! For more information go to www.cdc.gov.
