Health & Safety Steps We're Taking

Updated 6/21/2021

Members

  • Members are required to wear a face covering (over their nose and mouth) upon entering and while exiting both the REC Center and Fitness Center or Dance Studio unless they are fully vaccinated (see our Health and Safety Rules for details on this exception). Members are not required to wear a face covering while exercising, but may wear one if they wish.  Should you see park district staff without face coverings, please note that per the most recent guidelines published on May 18, 2021 by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunities (DCEO), park district staff who are fully vaccinated are able to provide service to our customers without the use of face coverings. 
     
  • The Fitness Center has transformed its layout to ensure that all workout stations/equipment are a minimum of 6’ in distance from each other.
    • We have also implemented face shields in front of all cardio equipment to minimize direct forward exposure to particles caused by those utilizing the machines.
  • ​Members will be presented with a sanitizer spray bottle and a clean towel upon entering the Fitness Center to sanitize equipment (e.g., weights, treadmills, etc.) before and after use. This is required by all members.
     
  • Sweat towels will NOT be provided by HPD. Members may bring their own from home. Fitness Center staff will NOT launder personal towels.
  • A sanitation station will be available upon entering the building and hand sanitizer will be available upon entering and exiting the fitness center.

  • If you do not intend to attend a class (even if it's last minute), please remove yourself from the class list. With limited space per class, we ask that everyone is courteous of others who may wish to join the class in your place.
    • *You may do this by simply going to the schedule, scroll down to that class, find your name, and hit the green X underneath your name. This will remove you from the class and open a spot for someone else to take.
  • Towels will NOT be provided by the Huntley Park District.
  • Members are encouraged to bring their own yoga mat/floor mat/blanket/towel/etc. if they wish to use one for exercises that take place on the ground. The Huntley Park District will provide their own mats to be used during group exercise classes as well. We ask that members wipe down their equipment after class use.

  • Members are asked to wipe their equipment with disinfectant wipes/sprays after use.
