Reservations for Group Exercise classes will still be required. Members will be allowed to use the restrooms within the facility. Locker rooms will be unavailable. All other policies & procedures for safety and wellness will remain the same.
All members will be required to review our updated facility guidelines. These guidelines explain new facility updates, safety protocols and etiquette. You must sign our updated liability and conduct waivers prior to visiting the Y.
Our Y will be following all updated local and state guidelines as they pertain to wellness checks for all members, staff and guests. These checks may include, but not limited to, daily temperature checks and/or a set of inquiry questions.
Members, staff, and guests must practice CDC Safety Guidelines when inside the facility:
Members and staff are required to sanitize their hands upon entry and exit. Members must also wipe down their equipment before and after use. We have added new hand sanitizing and gym wipe stations in the facility for easy access. Failure to comply may result in an immediate removal from our Y Fitness Facility and a revocation of the membership.
To ensure your safety, and the safety of others, we will initially have limited facility occupancy. Reservations will be highly recommended. We ask that members limit their facility usage to 90 minutes per visit. Occupancy, reservations, and time limits will be adjusted as allowed. View our branch capacity:
Our staff will be there to serve you with a smile, however, germ shields have been put in place for their protection, and they may be wearing masks or gloves while serving you. Staff will maintain a 6 foot distance around themselves throughout the day, and follow all CDC recommended guidelines for safety. Staff will be disinfecting the equipment prior to use, and regularly cleaning commonly used areas.
While your Y membership includes access to the pools at the SLO Swim Center, it is operated by the City of San Luis Obispo. The City of San Luis Obispo will continue to follow both County and State recommendations regarding the reopening of the SLO Swim Center. The pool will reopen on Monday, July 6th.
Our Y Fitness Facility will reopen in phases. In this initial reopening, these areas of the facility will be open for limited use:
Directional arrows, floor markers, and signage will guide you throughout the facility. All members must follow the flow of traffic and instructional signage, entering through one door, and exiting through another. To exit the facility, you will need to pass through the fitness floor.
We are providing physical distancing throughout the facility, through a new layout of fitness equipment and modified procedures. Seating areas have been reduced to prevent gathering. Signage throughout the facility (including floor decals) will help members navigate new safety procedures and inform members regarding the changes and health safety guidelines. Failure to comply may result in an immediate removal from our Y Fitness Facility and a revocation of the membership.
Our entire Y Fitness Facility has undergone a deep cleaning and disinfecting, and additional deep cleanings/disinfecting are scheduled moving forward. Staff will also be cleaning on an increased and regular schedule. Not only will our facility be cleaned extensively prior to opening each day, we will also close for a short period of time during the day for additional cleaning. We have also installed touchless fixtures in our restrooms, and an increased number of sanitizer stations.
