What's new: Creating your blueprint for a wellness-based community.

Coronavirus response center

how long are you planning for programming (closures and changes)?

I would suggest having a plan to phase in programming based on guidelines issued by your state/government, as well as your desire to "do what's right" In Phase 1, you plan for reopening. You re-train staff in new guidelines for admittance to your facilities/amenities. You educate and communicate to your members/attendees that things may look very different. In Phase 2, you reopen under new guidelines: no group classes, or classes with smaller numbers (social distancing of 6 feet based on room size). You open fitness centers with limited access to equipment (i.e. eliminate dumbells and mats, other things that are not easily cleaned, every other treadmill/spin bike, etc...). You GAIN the confidence of your residents/members by rolling out a plan that provides for the safety of your staff and members/residents. Phase 3: you gradually relax guidelines in accordance with state/government, and with the "feel" of receptiveness of your base. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. I base my comments on what is coming out of Hong Kong post Covid.
