Safer Members

Pre-registration will be required to sign up for your workout time, classes, or swim time via our self service portal. This is allowed up to 48 hours in advance before workout/classes/swim time begins. This will allow all members a fair opportunity to register for their preferred time slot.
  • SANITIZATION UPON ENTRY/EXIT: Members and staff will be asked to sanitize hands upon entry & exit. Increased hand sanitization stations will be available throughout the facilities.
  • WORKOUT READY RULE: Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled workout/swim time.
  • SYMPTOM CHECKLIST: Anyone experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms must stay home. A list of symptoms as outlined by the CDC and displayed through the school facility for your reference.
  • TEMPERATURE SCANS: All members will have temperatures taken and complete a symptom check upon arrival. Members who are not feeling well will be asked to remain at home.
  • PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: All members are required to wear face masks in our facility. For safety reasons, swimmers will not wear face masks while in the water, but will need to wear face masks in the locker room and pool deck. Update on 8/1/20: Face masks are now mandatory at all times during workouts* & in school facility while others are present. This includes the Fitness Center, Weight Room, Bootcamp & Zumba. This excludes: Open/Lap Swim & Aqua Aerobics *Per Waterloo School Board policy. Pool members are asked to bring a clean, separate pair of water shoes (such as Crocs, flip flops, or mesh water shoes) to wear while in the locker rooms, showers, and pool deck.
