REOPENING at THE ADIRONDACK CLUB

 

UPDATED 11/20/20

We’re excited to announce that after being closed for 16 weeks, the Governor has moved Massachusetts in to phase 3 and the CLUB IS NOW OPEN! With his approval comes numerous guidelines that both the Club and members must comply with. Please read everything below to familiarize yourself with the changes. These will be updated regularly.

Safety Guidelines

UPDATED FACE COVERING GUIDELINES

Please Note:

Per new State Guidelines, masks are required at all times while on the tennis courts including during play. These guidelines DO NOT include members playing singles tennis or members who are taking a 1-on-1 lesson with a Tennis Pro. 

Also, masks must be worn at all times on The Deck and the adjoining stretch area

The latest research on face coverings indicates certain characteristics are required in order to be effective. Face coverings must:

  • Be made with at least 2 layers of material

  • Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin

  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face

  • Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the wearer to be hands-free

 

In light of this research, we are updating our policy on face coverings and effective Monday, August 17th, bandanas, neck gaiters, single layer face coverings and face coverings with vents, ports or perforations of any kind will no longer be permitted as an approved face covering. If you arrive at the club with a non-compliant face covering you will asked to replace it with a disposable mask that we will provide for $2, or leave and return with an appropriate face covering. We are implementing this change to continue to ensure that we are providing the safest environment for our members.

 

Please remember that face coverings are required for everyone ages 2 and up. They must be worn at all times except when swimming, playing tennis or when actively exercising (you must keep 14 feet of distance).

 

Your cooperation is appreciated as we continue to do everything possible to maintain a safe and healthy environment.

Masks/ Face Coverings:

  • Masks are required in all areas of the building when not actively exercising

  • Areas that do not require masks while exercising are clearly marked and social distancing of 14 feet is required at all times.

  • New State of Massachusetts executive orders mandates that all double or group tennis lessons require both participants and tennis pros to wear a facemask at all times during play. Singles tennis or private 1 on 1 lessons do not fall into this mandate. 

Sanitizing:

  • Everyone is required to use hand sanitizer/wash hands upon entry/exit and frequently while in the club

  • Members must wipe down ALL equipment, weights & lockers BEFORE & AFTER each use

  • Small exercise equipment (e.g. Bands, rollers, balls) are available at the sanitizing station on the Main Floor and must be returned there after use

  • Frequent touchpoints in the club will be sanitized several times a day by trained staff using electrostatic spraying technology and our one-step Disinfectant Virucide Cleaner Quat-Stat 5, proven to kill the Covid-19 virus.

General:

  • Adhere to all posted health and safety protocols when on site

  • Hallways have been setup as one-way where possible

  • There will be multiple exit points to reduce congestion at the main entrance

  • All HVAC systems in the club will filter/change the air in the space at least 6 times per hour (every 10 minutes)

  • State guidelines prohibit fans to be used indoors, so the HVAC systems will be set to provide a safe and comfortable workout environment

  • Water fountains will be available for bottle refilling only, please bring water bottles with you or purchase from the vending machine in the basement
