What is your staff doing to ensure safety?
In order to prioritize members’ safety and protect themselves, all are required to do a daily screen including a temperature check before their shift, and are required to wear Person Protective Equipment (PPE). All Midtown Health Club employees are trained on the proper execution of our updated health and safety protocols.
What is a self-screening?
At the check-in table, each member will need to read and agree that they do not have any symptoms related to the COVID-19 virus including: experiencing any coughing, having a temperature of 100.4o, or having difficulty breathing. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or additional symptoms related to the virus we kindly ask that you do not check-in or enter the club. Temperature will not be taken in the club.
What happens if someone visits the club has, or is exposed to the virus?
Members will be asked to alert their club’s General Manager if they test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of their last club visit. Spark will email notification to all potentially exposed persons if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19. Members who have come in contact with another individual who has COVID-19 are asked to not enter the club until they have been tested or 14 days have past.
Do members have to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)?
