Mask-Wearing (Updated 8/30/21)
Recent updates - changes highlighted in blue. (Updates may not mean new policies. Updates may be policies already in place that were not listed on this page)
8/30/21: New safety measures have been implemented as a result of the rise in Delta Variant cases.
As per the latest "County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Order of the Health Officer" that was effective as of July 31st, 2021, "Masks are required, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status, indoors in K-12 schools, child care, and other youth settings" (i.e.: children's gyms, sports, gymnastics, and play facilities; etc.) As a result, we will continue our pre-existing mask policy which is:
Everyone 3+ years old is required to wear masks at all times, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. We highly recommend children 2-years-old wear masks as well.
Children younger than 3-years-old, who are attending a class age group that includes children 3+ years old, must wear masks too.
Please bring your own face masks and wear them at all times.
All face masks must:
- Be made with at least 2 layers of breathable material (does not necessitate 2 separate masks)
- Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face and that there are no gaps around the sides (common seen with disposable masks)
- Be secured with ties or ear loops to remain hands-free
At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, face shields, single-layer masks, and masks containing valves, mesh material, or holes of any kind are not allowed at My Gym Long Beach.
Please make sure your mask is on and worn properly prior to entering the gym. No one may enter the gym without properly wearing a mask. Attendees may not enter maskless and put on their masks once inside.
The use of face masks is not a substitute for social spacing.
We strongly encourage all current and future members (who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine) to get vaccinated. For your peace of mind, all team members at My Gym Long Beach are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
