Beginning on <strong>Tuesday, January 4</strong><strong>, 2021 </strong>the gym will be accessible to<strong> <span style="text-decoration:underline;">all </span></strong><span style="text-decoration-line:underline;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">ex</span>isting</strong></span><strong> </strong>VGH Fitness & Wellness Centre members.<br></p><p>Thank you to all employee members for your feedback and suggestions during this testing phase. We are not yet accepting new members, but this step is in progress and will be the final phase of our complete re-opening. All payments will continue to be paused until further notice.</p><p>Our team and volunteer committee have been working hard to ensure your visit to the Centre will be a safe one. We predict there will be some bumps as members get familiar with new admin and safety protocols so please be patient with us and each other. That being said, we are continually trying to improve your experience and feedback is welcome.<br></p><p>In light of COVID-19, your gym experience will be different than before.</p><p>1) Members must now <a href="https://vghwellnesscentre.janeapp.com/" target="_blank"><strong>sign up to book 1-hour workout slots</strong></a><strong> </strong>in advance. Refer to the <a href="/_layouts/15/DocIdRedir.aspx?ID=VCHCA-1797567310-3049" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />instructions to use the Janeapp</a>. <br></p><p>2) For your safety, we have implemented new protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These protocols include, but are not limited to:</p><ul><li><p>On-site Fitness Attendants during operating hours</p></li><li><p>Limited room occupancies</p></li><li><p>Appropriate mask use by members and staff</p></li><li><p>More frequent equipment sanitization</p></li><li><p>Mandatory COVID-19 questionnaires, Participation Release of Liability, Cancellation Policy, etc.</p></li><li><p>Discontinued locker and water services</p></li></ul><p>Prepare for your visit by reading our updated<strong><a href="/_layouts/15/DocIdRedir.aspx?ID=VCHCA-1797567310-3045" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Code of Conduct</a></strong> for more details on these changes.</p><p>Finally, please note that due to new protocols there must be a fitness attendant (our SFU co-op students) onsite at all times while the gym is open. This means that the VGH Fitness & Wellness Centre hours will be reduced from pre-COVID and fluctuate slightly week to week. Janeapp will have the most up-to-date schedule for you to pick your times that work best for you.</p><p>Thank you so much for your patience during this time. We understand how long awaited our reopening is, and we look forward to continuing to serve your wellness needs.<br></p><p>If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at <a href="mailto:VGH.WellnessCentre@vch.ca">VGH.WellnessCentre@vch.ca</a> (<em>we may take some time to get back to you, because of all of our additional duties and varying hours, but we will get back to you!</em>)<br></p><p>See you soon!<br>VGH Fitness and Wellness Centre Staff</p><p></p></div><div class="ExternalClass0ABD291B638A4DEFB88C056C92BAA309"><p> <br> </p><p>Discover the best kept secret at Vancouver General Hospital!
