WK Fitness & Wellness Centers

Phase 2

As we move into Phase 2 of opening back up for business on Friday, June 5th, We’re happy to inform you of the lifting of some restrictions.

The pools, showers, locker rooms will re-open with space distancing still in place.

Group exercise classes will resume with space distancing rules in place. Masks still are required with the exception of the pools. Unmasked pool utilization requires 12’ of space distancing. This phase will last for 21 days before re-evaluation and hopefully we can move more toward normality.

We look forward to seeing you back soon!

 

Phase 1

In preparation of our re-opening the Wellness Centers on Monday, May 18th, 2020, we want all members to feel comfortable when visiting, so we have taken special precautions to help assure that we are providing safe spaces for exercise.  We know that many of these limitations are inconvenient, but your safety is a high priority.

Occupancy Limits - Exercise time will be restricted to two hours per member to assure adequate time for all members and to abide by state maximum occupancy limits.

Screening - Temperature checks will be performed daily. If access is denied due to the detection of fever, you will be referred to your primary care physician. You may return when you have a note from a physician clearing you for exercise and when you have achieved a 72 hour fever free period without the use of medication.

Masks/Face Coverings - Masks are required of all members, guests, and employees at all times while in the facilities.  Members must provide their own masks and wear them to cover both mouth and nose to be effective.

Spacing Of Equipment - Social distancing should be observed with equipment use, leaving adequate space between members.

Cleaning and Sanitation - Frequent cleaning and sanitation will occur by staff. Members should also use disinfectant (provided by us) to wipe down equipment before and after use.

Bathrooms and Lavatories - These will remain open and monitored for cleanliness throughout the day.

Closed - Until further notice, the following will be closed:  coffee areas, lobby seating, nurseries, personal training, group exercise classes, locker access, towel service, wet areas (pools, spas, and showers).

Outside Food - Food cannot be brought into the centers. Drinking water may be brought from home or purchased at the front desk of each facility.

Operational Hours - During Phase 1, all facilities will operate at normal hours except weekends.

Facility Ingress/Egress - Please note that facility access will be limited to one entrance in order to enable our staff to screen all members. Signage will be provided indicating the appropriate entrance/exit.

FACTS ABOUT COVID-19

COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

The most common symptoms that may appear 2 to 14 days following exposure to the virus are:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing

Symptoms may also include at least two of these:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

COVID-19 RISK FACTORS

  1. Travel to an affected country/region
  2. Close contact (within 6 feet) with a person diagnosed with COVID-19

IF YOU SUSPECT YOU HAVE COVID-19

If you suspect you have COVID-19 AND you have one of more of the risk factors, immediately call your primary care physician for instruction.  If you do not have a primary care provider, call the Louisiana Department of Health general information line (2-1-1) or your preferred healthcare provider (urgent care, emergency department) for instructions. 

DO NOT ARRIVE AT ANY HEALTHCARE PROVIDER WITHOUT CALLING FIRST TO GET INSTRUCTIONS. Arriving at a location without getting instruction risks exposure of others who do not have this virus. 

IF YOUR CONDITION IS LIFE-THREATENING, CALL 9-1-1, but be sure to SHARE YOUR SYMPTOMS and RISK FACTORS with the operator so appropriate measures can be taken when transporting you to a healthcare facility.

Avoid public areas.  Stay at home away from others if you are sick.

Limit contact with pets and animals. Since little is known about this virus, avoid contact with your pets. If you must care for a pet while ill, wash your hands before interacting with the pet and wear a facemask.

Cover your coughs and sneezes. Dispose of tissues in a lined trashcan. Wash your hands immediately.

Clean your hands often. Wash with soap and water at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom, and before eating or preparing food. If you do not have soap and water, use an alcohol-based (at least 60% alcohol) hand sanitizer.

Avoid touching your face.  Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Clean household/personal items daily. These include your dishes, cell phone, computer keyboard, door knobs, countertops, sink faucet handles, etc.
