Gateway Sports Complex Coming Soon!

We support our local community in ensuring that their safety is one of our top priorities.⁠ ⁠ 


For more information please give the office a call.

Cleaning and Sanitation Procedures

Gateway Sports Complex will implement the following procedures to ensure the safety of our member and staff.

Cleaning Protocols
In addition to existing continuous cleaning protocols, we will add a rigorous, deep-cleaning and disinfecting process three times during the day and once overnight. Designated areas of the club will be sectioned off during the day to facilitate the deep cleaning. We will be asking all team members to support these rigorous cleaning protocols.
Disinfection Procedures
Medical-grade, EPA-registered disinfectants which are designated effective against the COVID-19 virus with a kill time of less than one minute will be used for all continuous and deep-cleaning processes. This equipment will also be used to fully disinfect lockers and Group Fitness equipment between use.
Hand Sanitizers
Members will be asked to use hand sanitizer when entering the club and frequently throughout their visit. The hand sanitizer solution kills up to 99.9% of germs and includes at least 60% alcohol. Hand sanitizer will be available at stations throughout the facility.
Disinfectant Wipes
Members will be asked to use disinfectant wipes on equipment before and after use in addition to Gateway’s cleaning protocols. Our disinfectant wipes, approved by the EPA for use against COVID-19 are proven to kill 99.99% of bacteria, viruses & fungi on equipment while having the safest EPA Toxicity Rating. Disinfectant wipes will be available throughout the fitness areas.
Temperature Checks
Members and our teams will have body temperatures taken prior to entering the facility via touchless thermometers. Per CDC guidelines, individuals with a body temperature greater than 100.4 degrees, will not be permitted entry into the facility.
Health Declaration
Members and our teams will be required to complete a mandatory Health Declaration before being granted access to the facility. This will be done verbally to confirm the member is not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, nor have they come in contact with someone who is experiencing symptoms.
Notifications
Members will be asked to alert Gateway staff if they test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of their last visit. We will email notification to all potentially exposed persons if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 at Gateway.
Face Coverings
Our teams will be provided with face masks and gloves, which will be required to be worn in the facility at all times. Members are requested to wear a mask when entering the club, when within 6 feet of others, and in all common areas, including hallways, Locker Rooms, and lobby. For convenience, members may purchase masks at the front counter.
Gloves
It is recommended but not required that members wear gloves during their visit.
Signage and Floor Markers
So members can give each other enough space, physical distancing cues will be marked in the lobby area. Plastic barriers have been set up between equipment pieces to comply with CDCs social distancing requirements. Signs will be placed throughout the weight room and cardio room to remind members to wipe down equipment before and after use and to practice physical distancing.
Temporarily On Pause
During the initial reopening period, the following will be closed: steam room, sauna, pool, and Kids Club.
Front Desk
New Plexiglass barriers are designed to provide a protective shield between members and the Front Desk.
Equipment Use
To facilitate physical distancing, we will reduce equipment available for use. Select equipment will be unplugged and clearly marked to facilitate physical distancing. 30-minute time limits may be imposed on the equipment during peak hours, if necessary.
Personal Training Sessions
Members will be asked to practice physical distancing etiquette during personal training sessions. Trainers will remain 6mfeet away from clients and all cueing and corrections will be done verbally.
