    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 today, 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 Nov. 6th) 
    We ask that everyone please wear a mask while enjoying your time here at the WCC (all areas of the building). 

    Face masks are now 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 now required within the fitness room and gymnasium by all users.

    Face masks are NOT required while in the pool. 

    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. We have also opened up the family changing rooms to the public at the end of the hallway (previously 'Staff only' by the pool entrance by Lori's (Pool Director) office) for families and individuals to change in for the pool. We have disinfectant spray bottles available on the Pool side of the Pool entrance door by the Pool Director's office.

    Reminder the Pool, Fitness Room and Gymnasium areas are available by reservation only, walk ins are welcome, but discouraged at this time, if there is space available. All reservations are in half hour increments, please be specific as to how much time you will want for your swim in the pool or your exercise within the fitness room or gymnasium (1/2 hour, 1 hour, 1.5 hours).

When a piece of equipment is in use, no adjacent piece of equipment can be used (example treadmills, please leave a piece of equipment in between you and the next person), this will allow for the recommended 6' spacing while working out while wearing a mask. We have moved some of our equipment into the gymnasium to allow more pieces of equipment to be used at one time.
