Lakeview Fitness Safety Protocols
The health and safety of our members and staff is our top priority. We continue to implement necessary guidelines from the CDC and in coordination with our Park District Risk Management Agency recommendations to ensure we are incorporating and enforcing the highest standard of cleanliness and safety in our facility.
Cleaning and Sanitation
Cleaning Protocols: In addition to existing cleaning protocols, we have a fitness attendant on the floor to keep up with cleaning throughout the day, and also have a deep cleaning in the evenings. We also have all Lakeview staff members contributing to our rigorous cleaning procedures. AirPHx units are installed for air purification which has been proven effective against coronavirus. A Clorox disinfecting electrostatic sprayer is used daily throughout the facility maximizing staff and member safety.
Disinfection Procedures: We will continue to use hospital-grade, EPA-registered disinfectants that are COVID-19 approved. Additional cleaning supplies is available for wiping down equipment before and after use. Hand sanitation stations are added around the facility for frequent hand cleaning. Members are expected to wash their hands (a portable hand washing station will be at our entrance) or use hand sanitizer before entering the club.
Modified Hours: Please see the Lakeview Fitness’ homepage for more information.
Group Exercise: In-person classes are scheduled to allow sufficient minutes between group exercise classes for disinfecting the studio and all equipment. Members and staff are expected to wipe down equipment before and after classes.
Lockers: Members are expected to disinfect lockers before and after use. Disinfectant spray and/or wipes is available in locker rooms. Staff is present throughout the facility to ensure protocols are being followed.
Hand Sanitizer: Hand sanitizer is available throughout the facility. Members are asked to use hand sanitizer when entering Lakeview and frequently throughout their visit.
Disinfectant Wipes and Spray: Members are expected to use a disinfectant spray on all equipment before and after use in addition to Lakeview’s cleaning protocols. We provide signs and education for our members on the proper way to use any disinfectant. Our spray is approved by the EPA for use against COVID-19. In addition, we currently have EPA approved wipes throughout the facility in addition to spray bottles.
Staff: “Self wellness checks” are performed before reporting to work. Staff will be sent home if exhibiting any symptoms of illness.
Members: Members are expected to stay home if exhibiting any symptoms of illness or have a temperature above 100.4. Members are encouraged to use hand sanitizer or wash their hands prior to activities.
Notification: Members are expected to notify Facility Manager, Lacy Velasquez, if they test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of their last visit. When notified, Lakeview Fitness staff will evaluate and email notification to all potentially exposed persons if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 at Lakeview Fitness.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Members: Fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear masks. Children over 2 years and under 12 years, plus minors and adults who are not vaccinated, must wear a mask covering nose and mouth.
Staff: Fully vaccinated staff are not required to wear masks. However, staff and volunteers must wear a mask while working with children under the age of 12 years.
The following areas remain closed and reevaluated on an ongoing basis: pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, and babysitting.
Touch-Free Check-In: Members are able to scan themselves in using their phone, via the Lakeview Fitness app, or with their key fob for a contactless transaction with check-in staff.
Front Desk: Floor decals are positioned for proper social distancing
Trainers will maintain a 6-foot distance from clients and will avoid any hands-on adjustments that are typical in one-on-one training. As much as possible, trainers will work with higher risk clients in various areas of the building that have not been previously utilized to offer further distancing from larger groups.
Locker Room Etiquette
Give Each Other Space: Lockers and showers are marked to maintain proper social distancing. Disinfectant spray and wipes are available for members to clean their lockers before and after use.
