Update on Fitness Center Opening under Covid Restrictions

Health guidance is being updated frequently now that vaccinations are becoming widespread. The Fitness Committee recently met to discuss the latest public health orders in Colorado and the ability to reopen our Fitness Center. Jefferson County is now at level Blue with respect to health restrictions. This means that fitness centers are restricted to operating at 50% capacity and still have requirements for social distancing of 6’ and wearing masks. In addition, all equipment must be cleaned between uses and the bathrooms must be cleaned every hour.  Finally, the biggest concern is the ventilation guidance for indoor exercise. Our Fitness Center includes a remodeled racquetball court and its rate of air exchange presents a challenge for reopening.

The new CDC guidance on allowing small groups of vaccinated individuals to meet indoors will make a big difference in allowing us to relax some of the current restrictions. The Fitness Committee will meet again in a few weeks to discuss the latest information and work with our community manager and Board to identify timing and procedures to open the Fitness Center as soon as possible. Watch for announcements on our weekly eblasts for updates. Please email suzy@geneseefoundation.org with any questions or concerns.
