The virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to others by infected persons who have few or no symptoms. Even if an infected person is only mildly ill, the people they spread it to may become seriously ill or even die, especially if that person is 65 or older with pre-existing health conditions that place them at higher risk. Because of the hidden nature of this threat, everyone should rigorously follow the practices specified by the U.S. Center for Disease Control.  The virus that causes COVID-19 is still circulating in our communities. We should continue to observe practices that protect everyone, including those who are most vulnerable.  All members should self-screen before attending classes as outlined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control Self-Checker. If you have any of these symptoms, DO NOT COME TO CLASS.

Our primary commitment and focus at all times is the health and safety of the Live Well Fitness family. The purpose of these protocols is to minimize disease spread as best as possible. We have implemented the policies and procedures below that will guide our return to exercise. These policies will be updated as the health situation progresses.

• Hand sanitizer will be readily available.
• Regularly and frequently disinfect touched surfaces; such as doorknobs, tables, chairs, especially after each class.
