CoxHealth announced they will be reopening their top fitness facility, The Meyer Center, on June 14.
The center will require masking of all members when they are not actively exercising. Temperature screenings will take place at the door along with symptom screenings.
A press release from the hospital said that hours and services will be determined by the Infection Prevention team of the hospital.
“We’re really looking forward to The Meyer Center’s reopening, as we know our members have really missed it, and we’ve missed seeing them,” Chris Flouer, director of CoxHealth Fitness Centers, said in a statement. “However, the health of our employees and members is of upmost importance to us. We are paying very close attention to the number of COVID-19 cases in our area, and have a formula to determine when to reopen additional services based on that data and other indicators in the community.”
The center had been closed twice during the pandemic. The first time was in March 2020 to reduce COVID-19 spread. It reopened in June, but was closed in August so the center could be converted into a daycare for students of hospital staff working extra hours due to COVID-19.
“Now that we have completed our mass vaccination clinics in the center, we eagerly anticipate having our members back, and helping them achieve their health goals,” Flouer said.
