Dear Houstonian Club Members,
Please enjoy this video with Club Member, Epidemiologist and Infectious Disease Specialist, Dr. Ed Septimus. Dr. Septimus has been a vital part of our team in reopening the Club with the best practices and precautions in place. This video will give you an inside look into our reopening strategy.
It has been wonderful to see many of you back in the Club enjoying the services and amenities that allow us to help support your overall health and wellbeing. We are continuing to offer many virtual options across the Club as well, and by request, beginning Monday, August 3, the mid-day Youth Department sanitation time will now occur from 1-1:30 p.m., allowing more flexibility for Member workouts.
Our leadership team has reviewed your Club Reopening Questionnaire feedback, and we are very grateful for the excellent scores we have received from so many of you. We will continue to provide measures that offer you the safest possible experience and these measures will remain in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of our Members and employees. In the past few weeks, we have added hand-wave touchless door opening mechanisms in certain locations, and in the Fitness Center we added large panels of suspended Plexiglas to the front row of our Matrix treadmills, providing an additional barrier of protection for our Members utilizing the indoor track.
This week, we began distributing complimentary custom Houstonian Club facial coverings to show our appreciation for our membership. We are providing two per family and one per individual membership. Please remember to bring your own personal facial covering each time you come to the Club, as we will no longer be providing the disposable masks effective tomorrow, Aug. 1. We have provided over 10,000 masks since the Club reopened, and have now provided the logoed Houstonian Club masks for your convenience. If you did not receive one please visit the Club welcome desk.
We will continue to enforce the social distancing and facial covering requirement in our facility, and we have established Club Standards for addressing noncompliance. Repeated failure to follow these guidelines for wearing facial coverings in the Club can lead to suspension of your membership, so please help us by doing your part to keep yourself and fellow Members and employees safe by wearing your facial coverings properly.
Additionally, with regard to the Covid-19 Questionnaire that is presented upon Check-in to the Club, we have added the following signage pertaining to this measure:
Please understand that failing to accurately answer the Covid-19 related questions upon your entry to the Club, providing false information to the Club regarding your Covid-19 status or failing to provide the Club accurate information regarding your Covid-19 status is grounds for termination of membership.
We request self-disclosure and expect Members to quarantine in accordance with CDC guidelines and not return to the club until they are symptom free. Please do your part as a dedicated Member of the Club to answer the Covid-19 Questionnaire with complete accuracy.
As we move forward through these uncertain times, please know our leadership and all of our wonderful employees at the Club are here for you, and we are passionately committed to safely serving you and your families.
