Starting Sunday January 2nd, all athletes (and employees) will be required to be fully vaccinated (2 doses of Moderna/Pfizer or 1 of J&J) AND:
- Have received a vaccine booster (preferred!)
- OR, have tested positive for COVID within the past 2 months
- OR, wear a mask at all times while inside the gym.
If you haven’t yet sent us your updated vaccination card including booster info, or let us know you’ve recently had COVID, please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
To date we have not seen in-gym spread: within the past 2 weeks we have had 5 reported cases of an athlete experiencing symptoms within 3 days of attending class, and after asking all other athletes in class to be tested have had only one other positive test reported back despite the NYC surge.
However, given the alarming case trend line and the holiday travel season, we have decided that more stringent safety measures are warranted. We will regularly reevaluate: hopefully the rapid decline in Omicron cases seen in South Africa will also happen here.
