Covid –19: Awareness and Preparedness

March 11, 2020

Island Health and Fitness is committed to the health and safety of our members, team members, and guests. We are closely monitoring state and county health departments.  The United States Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) is being utilized for updates, resources, and information on the 2019 coronavirus (COVID-19). Below are some of the measures we take every day to help keep our club “member community” healthy.  We have added some tips as well to assist with what you, as members, can do to support your own health and the health of others. As for concerns about working out, the benefits of exercise are important.  If you are healthy we encourage you to continue to work out.

Combined with nightly janitorial services that clean the club “after hours”, we provide daily in-club janitorial services.  Paper towels and cleaning solution as well as disinfectant wipes are available throughout the club.  We encourage members to wipe down fitness equipment before and after their workouts.

Here are some of the recommendations from the CDC for prevention of the coronavirus:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, or your elbow.  Please throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using the cleaning spray or wipe that is provided.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  This is especially necessary after eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Call your healthcare professional if you feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, or have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.
