We wanted to update everyone about what YMCA Victoria are doing in regard to Coronavirus.
We are closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and following the directions of the Department of Health and Human Services. There have been no confirmed cases at Macleod Recreation and Fitness Centre and we are taking extra precautions to keep the centre clean and sanitised.
We ask that patrons consider their own hygiene practices:
- Do not attend the centre if you are feeling unwell.
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and water and use the hand sanitizers provided.
- Wipe down mats, weights (this includes dumbbells and barbells), and machines thoroughly with a disinfectant wipe both before and after using them.
- Bring a towel with you and lay it down on the mat, bench or machine you are using.
- Ensure you are wiping your face with your towel and not your hands.
- If you do have to cough or sneeze, try and catch it in a tissue, your shirt, or the crease of your elbow.
As you are aware, this situation is changing rapidly. We will keep updating you as new information comes to light, but for now it is business as usual with all Group Fitness classes (except Boxing) and Gymnastics programs continuing.
Some additional precautions we have implemented include:
- Reducing the capacity of Group fitness classes to allow for social distancing standards to be met
- Additional cleaning of equipment before and after classes
- Spacing of equipment in the gym and cycle room
- Additional cleaning of gymnastics equipment in between and during classes where possible
- Adjusting the program to reduce or eliminate contact from coach to students
- Eliminating use of the foam pit and hand powder
- Reminding children to was hands prior to their class commencing
We encourage you to refer to our website and Facebook Page for updates, and we will also communicate via email and text where possible.
