Increased Cleaning & Disinfecting – The GCCC will follow CDC Guidelines
The GCCC will use EPA-approved disinfectants and perform sanitizing and disinfecting best practices as provided by the CDC. The GCCC has invested in extra hand sanitizing stations, disinfecting wipes, and cleaning products, and they are readily available for member use throughout the facility.
Each department director in our facility has created new cleaning guidelines for their staff. These plans include detailed checklists and schedules. For example: all high-touch areas will be cleaned every hour (equipment, doorknobs, countertops, handles etc.). All staff has become a part of the cleaning crew, and we are each dedicated to keeping our members healthy. We also expect our members to pitch in – we have placed ample amounts of signage reminding members to clean equipment before and after use. Rule of thumb when it comes to fitness equipment – if you touch it, clean it.
The team at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center are the same wonderful people you have worked with in past years. They will do absolutely everything possible to make your experience at our facility pleasant and rewarding. We know that being able to access the GCCC is good for our patrons’ physical as well as mental wellbeing. Please be considerate of our staff: team members are mothers, daughters, dads, sons, and partners and have loved ones who depend on them. It is important for all patrons to adhere to our safety guidelines. So put on your tennis shoes or get out your flippers and we will see you soon!
