COVID Response

It’s our privilege to welcome back guests to the Pieters Family Life Center. The safety of our customers, visitors and employees is of the utmost importance, and we’ve worked hard at implementing enhanced safety measures aligned with both CDC COVID-19 recommendations and New York State guidelines. These practices will be updated as recommendations and guidelines change.

Visiting the Pieters Family Life Center

This includes during use of fitness equipment or participation in group exercise classes, per New York State guidelines. You may remove your mask if participating in an aquatic class.
  • Everyone must enter through our main sliding doors in the front of the building.
  • Everyone must sanitize their hands at the sanitizing station when they enter the building.
  • Everyone must complete a COVID screening, which includes a survey and temperature check.

We’re Stronger Together

It’s the little, individual actions we all take that will make our communities safe during this pandemic. The same holds true for the environment here at the Life Center. Here are ways you can contribute to the safety of our community and facility:

  • If you’re sick, stay home. If you have symptoms related to COVID-19, stay home. If someone in your household is sick, stay home.
  • Wear your mask.
  • Practice physical distancing at all times.
  • Be kind and compassionate toward each other — we all continue to experience stress and uncertainty.
  • Wash your hands.
  • When you’re done with your workout or your class, please don’t congregate and mingle.
  • Please respect physical distancing markers and don’t congregate around the front desk.
