    Since our reopening of the pool on June 3rd and the restricted reopening of the rest of our facility on June 15th, memberships and the use of our facility has been continuing to grow. We want to continue to stress that we request everyone to stop and read through the posted signs before entering the WCC (Updated, November 9th). We have had great feedback from our members and are working hard to continue to update you on any changes in our policies and or State Guidelines as we move forward during these unprecedented times.

    Per new State Guidelines: (Updated December 11th) 
    Everyone must wear a mask while enjoying your time here at the WCC (all areas of the building). The only exception is when you are physically in the water (pool).

    Face masks are required while participating in fitness classes or other vigorous exercise within the WCC, we ask that everyone use common courtesy and provide social distancing of 6' or more while working out.
     
    Face masks are required within the fitness room and gymnasium by all users.

    Our Locker Rooms are open to 4 people at a time. For monitoring purposes entry of the locker rooms will continue to be from the pool side only, meaning the doors in the gym hallway will remain closed and locked at this time. Our policy for the locker rooms is going to be similar to that of our fitness room, you will have to take a disinfectant spray bottle (1 of 4 marked for each locker room) from the table outside the locker room doors (inside the pool area not the front desk). You will be asked to spray down all of the areas you touch within the locker rooms. There is showers, benches and bathroom facilities available in each locker room, please wear masks where applicable and use social distancing practices to the best of your abilities while using any and all of these spaces within our building. Our family changing rooms are also open to the public at the far end of the gym hallway for families and individuals to change in for the pool. We have disinfectant spray bottles for your use available on the Pool side of the Pool entrance door by the Pool Director's office.
