In this time of COVID-19, so many of our once-regular activities have become question marks.
But in July, after months of staying at home, gym regulars rejoiced when Edward-Elmhurst Health & Fitness officially opened its doors again.
While it feels good to get back into a workout routine, it’s also different because of coronavirus.
As long as COVID-19 is a health threat, there will be measures in place to keep you safe in the gym.
Our Fitness Centers follow these COVID-19 guidelines:
Our pools have reopened for lap swimming and aqua fitness classes. We aren’t taking reservations for lap swimming — first come is first served.
Our aerobics and spin classes have modified schedules with a smaller number of people per class. Our basketball court is open for solo play only, and racquetball and pickleball are singles play only.
There are still areas of the Fitness Centers that are closed, including childcare areas, sauna/steam room/whirlpools, lounges, water fountains and vending machines.
It is possible to get a safe workout at the gym during COVID-19. Following the protocols will help keep everyone safe.
For updates on our planning and response efforts as we work to stop the spread of COVID-19, please check EEHealth.org/coronavirus.
The information in this article may change at any time due to the changing landscape of this pandemic. Read the latest on COVID-19.
