Re-opening Information June 12, 2020

COVID-19 MEMO

POSTED JUNE 11, 2020

Rip’N Ronnie’s Fitness is excited to announce our reopening on June 12, 2020 at 6am. Outlined below are our conditions of reopening and what we are doing to ensure safety throughout this process. We understand that these new conditions are not ideal for everyone but ask that you bear with us as the safety of guests and members is our priority. Please read the following information thoroughly and contact the gym if you have any questions.

Starting Friday, June 12, we will be open from 6:00am to 10:00pm Monday-Friday. Doors will be open from 9:00am to 5:00pm Saturday and Sunday. Obviously, the office is open if you are wanting to renew/purchase memberships and/or supplements during these temporary extended office hours. We will continue to monitor and reassess with the hope of reinstating our 24/7 access soon.

Some areas, including the kids corner (and in fact, kids are asked not to accompany members at this time), and water fountain, sauna, will not be accessible. Keep in mind some equipment may not be available based on our safety regulations. At the moment we currently believe we won’t have a problem with capacity levels due to our square footage/usage ratio. However, if we see that this is changing, we reserve the right to refuse entry until levels resume to an acceptable ratio.

We are unable to accept entry within 1 hour of our closing time.  For example, if we close at 10pm (meaning all members need to leave at or before 10pm), you are not permitted after 9pm. Again, if we can all get these new protocols figured out, we’ll be able to get to our 24/7 access sooner!

What we are doing:

·      Frequent hand washing and masks worn by all staff

·      Physical distancing of 2 meters (about a barbell length) minimum observed at all times. Staff will be monitoring and enforcing as needed.

·      Daily screening routine for everyone entering the gym, including staff

·      Frequent cleaning throughout the day. We have implemented a cleaning checklist that will be completed on a regular schedule.

·      Spacing between equipment, some machines will be unavailable

·      Touchless payment options

 

What we are asking of you:

·      Please observe all AHS recommendations for safety protocol. Keep at least 2m (about 1 barbell length) between yourself and others at all times.

·      You MUST read COVID Screening questionnaire. If answer NO to all questions, you may proceed to SIGN IN with your FOB (this is a requirement, FOB is needed 100%). This verifies that you do not have any symptoms related to COVID-19.   If you answer yes to any of these, you still sign in that you’ve read screening questions but you will not be permitted to come in. If you do not have your FOB, you will be asked to leave and return with it.

·      Please grab your own disinfectant spray bottles and rag located by the front desk to clean equipment before and after use. Take this with you for the duration of your workout.

·      Please come dressed in gym attire. Water bottles are permitted, but we ask that you leave all other personal belongings/equipment at home or in your vehicle. The water fountain is not in use but the drink machine is.

·      Changerooms can be used for emergency washroom use only. Personal items can not be left in the changeroom, however, gym bags can be stored where our kids’ corner is.  We cannot have a lost and found box during this time. Showers and towel service are also unavailable at this time.

.       Drop-Ins are permitted for CENTRAL ALBERTA RESIDENTS ONLY.  Proof of residence will be required. A paper COVID screening will be completed.

 Response Plan

·      We are taking the following control measures in response to COVID-19:

o   If a case or outbreak is reported, Rip’N Ronnie’s Fitness management reserves the authority to modify or cancel services. 

o   If a staff member or gym attendee reports that they are suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 and have been in the facility, the gym will implement enhanced cleaning measures. Anyone currently in the facility will be asked to leave and individuals who have been in the facility will be advised to:

§  Self-isolate

§  Monitor symptoms daily and consult the COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool available on the AHS website to help determine if further assessment is required.

§  Call 8-1-1 for health advice and 9-1-1 for emergencies

o   In the event of a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 related to the gym, Rip’N Ronnie’s Fitness management will immediately report this to a medical health officer at Alberta Health Services.

o   If Rip’N Ronnie’s Fitness is contacted by a medical health officer in the course of contact tracing, all individuals associated with the gym are expected to cooperate with health authorities.

·      Along with these procedures, Rip’N Ronnie’s Fitness is taking measures to follow all guidelines and precautions from the Government of Alberta. We encourage staff and patrons to refer to the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services websites for more information.

 

 

 

Memberships Explained...

 To our valued and awesome members:

On March 17/20 we made the tough decision to close our doors and FREEZE everyone's membership. Meaning any time that you still had at R2, you wouldn't lose.

Friday, June 12/20 we will reopen our doors (more details to come on that) and all memberships that were active over our shut down time will be REACTIVATED. For example if you expired 4 days after our shut down time, you will have 4 days starting June 12.
We will have been shut down for 88 days total, so those members that originally expired after June 12/20, we have added an additional 88 days onto your original expiry date.
Due to the complexity of this situation, we feel this is the most honorable and fair way to do this. If you are unsure of your membership status, please call us during office hours to find out (again, more details coming on that end).
Watch for an instructional video tomorrow (June 11) on some of our new protocols we will need to follow.
We've missed all of you and look forward to seeing you soon???
 
We will be REOPENING SOON...

It can be anything from losing 10lbs., gained 10lbs of muscle, conquering your first obstacle race, body building competition, running your first 5km, etc.  If R2 helped, we want to celebrate you…

We look forward to celebrating all your accomplishments!
