COVID-19 Update 8/13/21

OREGON REOPENING

 

Skyhook's General Mask Policy

All individuals are required to wear masks. This will go in effect 8/13/21.

 

Why?

 

Although in previous weeks vaccinated individuals have not been required to wear masks, the most recent Oregon mask mandate requires that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks in indoor settings. Skyhook is following the Oregon mask mandate, along with the CDC guidelines to make sure our members have a safe experience at our gym.

 

Camp

 

All participants in camp will be required to wear masks.

 

Why?

 

We sold camps to parents months ago with certain policies and procedures in place. To ensure that we can provide that same service we won’t be making changes. We will be following the guidelines provided by the Oregon Health Authority which you can find below.

Counseling Services

All counseling services will still be mask required.

 

Why?

 

It may be a requirement by the state. Hospitals, long term living facilities, airports and clinics are still required to have mask mandates. We are still waiting for clarification on whether we fall under this category. For our groups that we have running we will continue with mask requirements as we have already sold these services under this premise.

 

Temperature Checks

 

We will no longer be doing temperature checks on members when you come into the facility. These will continue with staff.

 

Why?

 

With the no-touch thermometer we are finding it to be +/- up to three degrees and with the summer weather aren’t providing accurate results.

 

Staff

 

Staff will continue with mask wearing at this time.

 

Why?

 

After talking with staff individually, we didn’t have any major concerns with keeping them for the time being. We will keep them on as a group.

 

Hand Sanitizing

 

We will still require hand sanitizing/hand washing when coming into the facility.

Why?

We feel that regular hand washing is a good habit to get into, and will continue to help keep our gym more sanitary and safe.

 

We are sticking with masks for now, but will be progressively easing restrictions when Oregon regulations and CDC guidance allow. As new information comes out, we will keep our members' thoughts and opinions in the forefront of our mind as we continue to re-evaluate our mask policy.

 

Our goal is to get to the point where we can be mask optional to all customers, kids, and staff and want to make that transition at the appropriate time. We are aware that many businesses are moving significantly faster than we are and we are grateful for your patience and understanding.

 

We appreciate all of you who keep us informed and we look forward to going back normal.
