We are incredibly thankful to have been able to keep BAC running and available to our members since July 6th. We are grateful for the ongoing support from both members and staff as we worked together to ensure the safety and health of our Beverly Athletic Club Community.
Our commitment to providing the safest place in our local community has been achieved through our joint efforts each day. Beverly Athletic Club has met this challenge and succeeded at a level we could not have imagined was possible.
As we approach May 29th, we believe that continuing to follow the State and CDC guidance is the right course of action for the Club. With that in mind, here are the updates to the Club Policies that will start on that date. As always, If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been around someone who is sick, you should stay home and away from others.
As outlined by the CDC and the State of Massachusetts, Fully Vaccinated Members will be allowed the choice of being “mask optional” when using the club. For those who choose to continue to wear a mask while exercising, this will be accepted and understood by all. You should do whatever feels comfortable as it relates to your health.
Non-Vaccinated Members should continue to wear a mask at all times within the Club. Each person who uses the Club needs to take responsibility for themselves by remaining in a mask if not fully vaccinated.
If scheduled for a personal service like personal training, or massage etc., you may request the team member to wear a mask during your service. We also may ask that you wear a mask for the duration of your service.
Wiping down equipment by members is still required. Keeping the equipment clean and sanitary within the Club is a top priority. Be a considerate member of our community and continue to wipe down your equipment after use. You would like to know the equipment is clean when you start using it so please ensure that is the case for everyone else.
- Personal Spray Bottles We have increased the personal spray bottle tables and wipe dispensers throughout the club for easy access.
- Enhanced Cleaning Protocols The club’s enhanced Cleaning Protocols are part of who we are and will remain part of the club’s daily cleaning routine throughout the day.
- AirPHX We have made a significant investment and installed new technology called AirPHX in both locations. AirPHX takes the ambient air that goes through plasma cells in the unit and oxidizes the molecules that exit the unit and begin reducing over 90% of airborne and 95% of surface pathogens.
- UV Pool Sanitation Ultraviolet water treatment has been proven safer, healthier, and easier to manage than other methods to increase pool sanitation. In addition to our saltwater management of the pool, the non-chemical process of UV sanitation uses germicidal UV light rays to sanitize the water.
- Pool Testing: We will continue to follow the enhanced number of times we test the pool throughout the day as was outlined in the original covid opening guidelines per the state.
