We are Open!
After a two month closure, we are finally open again! For the safety of our members and community, the below measurements are in place.
Covid Prevention Protocol:
- Mandatory hand washing upon entering, leaving and before signing in.
- Take a clean cloth from the desk and use it for the duration of your stay to clean the equipment before and after use.
- Maximum capacity of 10 people permitted in the gym at any one time.
- Keep a strict 2 meters distance from other people unless you share a household. Keep at least 1 machine in between each user.
- Hand sanitizer is placed throughout the gym in small coloured bottles. Please use it frequently.
- Do not touch your face. If you must cough or sneeze, do so in your elbow.
- Gloves are not permitted. We do not know where they have been.
- Face masks are not mandatory, but are recommended.
- Stay home if you have travelled and should be in self-isolation.
- Individuals who have the symptoms of a cold, flu, or Covid-19 (coughing, fever, aches, fatigue) or who have been around people who are sick, are not permitted in the gym.

Please abide by these standards so we can assure the safety of our members, staff and SAC! Staff will continue to do extra cleaning of the gym and common use areas, such as bathrooms, water fountain, door handles.
