Chicago has moved into a “lower transmission” tier for Covid metrics, and has lifted most guidelines for Chicago businesses.When creating our plan to operate with Covid, we have three groups of stakeholders in mind:
- Our members
- Our staff
- The larger community
- Prioritize safety
- Implement additional protocols for social distancing and cleanliness
- Adhere closely to Chicago’s reopening guidelines — note that Chicago’s guidelines differ from the guidelines for the rest of the state

VENTILATION AND CLEANING
All equipment is disinfected after each sessionWe’ve built in a buffer between sessions for all equipment used during each session to be wiped down with disinfectant that kills viruses like SARS-CoV-2.
High touch surfaces are disinfected regularly throughout the dayWe’ve made it part of our standard operating procedures to disinfect frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, iPads, and bathroom sinks. Let’s not forget about high-touch equipment like pull-up bars and bikes — we clean those too. Even if Covid-19 doesn’t tend to transmit as much on surfaces, there are plenty of other critters that do.
Daily Deep Cleaning
