Best Practices at Health + Fitness Centre/Fitness + Racquet Club 

  • Stay home when you are feeling unwell or if you should be isolating
  • Wash hands frequently 
  • Return and sanitize equipment after use
  • Respect personal space - 2m physical distancing is encouraged
  • Consider other people’s situation - be kind, be calm 
  • Let us take care of conflicts. Things won’t always be perfect and conflicts can arise, the rule of thumb is to walk away from the situation and let us know through Member Services or comments@ywcavan.org 


We hope to see you soon!
