Berkshire South Regional Community Center takes the health and safety of our members, guests and employees very seriously. With the spread of the coronavirus or “COVID-19”, Berkshire South must remain vigilant in mitigating any potential outbreaks. To ensure we all remain safe and healthy, Berkshire South has developed the following COVID-19 Personal Training and Private Swim Lesson Plan:

BERKSHIRE SOUTH RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Enhanced sanitizing and cleaning procedures with all equipment prior to and after use.

  • Employee health screenings at the start of their shift to ensure our team is well and ready for your session.

  • All employees will wear a mask while in public spaces when in the building. This includes trainers while they are conducting personal training sessions.

  • All personal training sessions will be conducted to assure a minimum of a 6-foot space between the client and trainer

  • All swim lessons will be conducted to assure a minimum of a 6-foot space between the client and instructor

  • Increased education for our team focused on sanitation and hygiene standards for smart, safe practices.

  • Meeting or exceeding all state, local and regulatory guidelines relating to sanitation and hygiene. All disinfectants used in the Community Center are verified to ensure they meet the EPA’s criteria for sanitizing and disinfecting.

  • Semi-private lessons can be conducted only with two members of the same household and in the case of swim lessons, only when both clients do not need a swim assistant in the water.

  • All caregivers bringing others for swim lessons are asked to use the family bathrooms for changing before and after lessons, and must keep all belongings with the client(s) at all times.

  • Any swim lesson equipment will be sanitized properly before use with each class by the instructor.

WHAT WE ARE REQUESTING CLIENTS COMMIT TO:

  • Health Screenings upon entry to the Center:

    • Temperature check via a touchless thermometer prior to your session. For swim lessons that involve children, all individuals entering the building will be screened. Those with a temperature of 100.4 or higher must leave the building and reschedule their appointment. No cancelation penalties for these instances.

    • Affirmation that you aren’t exhibiting any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 and also that you have not been in close contact for a prolonged period of time with anyone that has exhibited symptoms. “Close contact” is defined as six (6) feet or less and “prolonged period of time” is defined as 15 minutes.

    • Affirmation that you and anyone you reside with has followed the MA state Travel Ban accordingly over the last 14 days.

  • Personal training clients must wear a face mask at all times except for when on a piece of cardio equipment. Masks must be worn when transitioning between pieces of equipment.

  • For swim lessons for those who may need assistance in the water, a “swim-assistant” must accompany the swimmer in the water. This must be provided for the client by the client party. We suggest this is a relative or a person that the client is comfortable with. This assistant must be a capable swimmer and be prepared to support the lesson exercises (including demonstrating skills) as explained by the swim instructor.

  • Sessions will be available in 30 minute and 50 minute increments. Payment in advance for your session, must be made online or by phone.

  • Arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled session to allow enough time for a health screening, to sign the new COVID waiver and to complete training/lesson session redemption.

  • If you arrive more than 10 minutes ahead of time, we kindly ask that you remain in your vehicle until the appropriate time to come in.
