DURING THE GREEN PHASE
Following the July 1st mandate from the state of Pennsylvania, members must wear a face-covering in all common areas including the lobby, locker rooms, and hallways. We will assume that failure to wear a mask is due to an existing condition.
Masks are highly recommended in our fitness center, our indoorpool, the gym, and our indoor tennis courts.
Social distancing on land and in the pool will be required.
During lap swimming, only two people per lane starting at opposite ends.
There will be no showers, lockers, sauna or steam room available.
