The safety of our members and team members is what’s most important. Purdy’s Wharf Fitness Club has been dedicated to delivering a healthy way of life to our communities for over 18years, and with a carefully planned and phased approach, we will begin to reopen.
As we navigate through the reopening of our location, capacity, programming amenities and services will be consistent with government guidelines. We expect these guidelines to shift in each phase and we will be informing you when this occurs. We appreciate your help and understanding as we work through this time together. We will all need to play a role in making this a successful return.
Our new protocol addresses Social Distancing, Cleaning/Disinfecting, Personal Hygiene, Health and Safety, Staff Support and mitigating risks.
