Franciscan Health Fitness Centers: 
A note to our members

 

As you know, in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and Indiana/Illinois legislators, we made the confident decision to close our Fitness Centers on March 16th. Like you, we want to do our part to flatten the curve of this pandemic. We have been monitoring the situation closely, alongside Franciscan Alliance hospital administration and will provide updates to members via our website, email and social media outlets.

Both Indiana and Illinois Governors have ordered the public to stay home and leave for only essential reasons through April 7, 2020. In the event our closure lasts longer, please rest assured knowing that we will take appropriate actions for dues and services during the closure of your facility. We intend to take care of you to the best of our abilities, as we always have in the past.

There is no higher priority to us than the health and safety of our members and co-workers. 

As a reminder, we’ve always used hospital-grade cleaning products on our equipment and surfaces and will continue to do so. The primary product we use throughout the Fitness Centers is categorized as a heavy-duty sanitizer/virucide cleaner that destroys viruses. While members have been away, our staff has been working to disinfect every inch of our clubs ensuring a clean environment upon reopening.

We encourage everyone to stay home and practice social distancing to ensure we slow the spread, until government officials publically announce otherwise. We encourage you to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 web page at www.cdc.gov/COVID19 for the latest information and prevention tips. 

As COVID-19 is an evolving situation, Franciscan Health Fitness Centers will continue work with local and state public health agencies should additional measures need to be taken. If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out to our staff. Safety is always paramount in the protection of our members, visitors and staff.
