Reopening Info – Covid19

updated May 27, 2020

We are delighted to announce that we are able to offer outside classes now as part of MA’s Phase 1 reopening plan! The Tisbury Board of Health visited last week and has stated we are well within the guidelines & pleased to hear the additional steps we are voluntarily taking to ensure safety for everyone and respect for our neighbors.

As we begin to slowly offer these classes, we ask our members to please be patient with us as we take the time necessary to stay aboveboard on all guidelines. While we are super excited to get back at it, this will not at all be a quick return to how we operated pre-covid. There are many new steps we have to take as laid out by the state, and those will make things a bit different for us as we return.

Here’s what our outside class programming will look like for us during Phase 1:

  • Classes are capped at 6 athletes, plus a coach, keeping us under the 10-person max allowed by the state

  • We have a portable handwashing station set up outside, as well as hand sanitizer at each individual workout station, and require all members to either wash hands or use hand sanitizer upon arriving

  • Members must wear a mask whenever 6-ft distance cannot be kept. Members are also required to have a mask “at the ready” (either around their neck, in their pocket, or on their mat) to be ready to use whenever social distancing isn’t possible. Further, we ask all members to “mask up” should they see any people out while on runs through our neighborhood, even if social distancing is being maintained.

  • Any member without a mask “at the ready” will be unable to participate, so don’t forget your mask!

  • Workout stations (which are 8×12 feet of individual, marked activity space) will be placed 12 feet apart

  • Each workout station will have its own basket of CDC-approved cleaning products so that members can sanitize their designated space before and after use

  • CFMV coaches will further disinfect between classes, using the extra time between scheduled classes to do so

  • Class times are scheduled in such a way that there is no overlap in people coming and going, to allow for ample social distancing during ingress and egress. Members are asked not to arrive to class early and not to hang around after class has ended

  • Members are required to pre-register (aka sign up on WODTogether) to reserve their class time

  • There will be no shared equipment within any class at any time

  • There will be no physical contact of members or coaches (including: no fist bumps, no chest bumps, no high fives)

  • Members only are permitted on premises; children and dogs are not currently permitted onsite

  • Informational signage about public health guidelines & CFMV Standards of Behavior are posted

  • Our building is closed except for use of the bathroom by one person entering at a time

    State guidelines and CFMV standards are subject to change.
