Exciting Changes Start Monday, November 1, 2021
COVID-19 Policy Updates

Dear Works Members,

We are so very pleased to share that after careful review with our infection control team at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital we are able to make careful changes to some of our policies. 

Please be advised that we continue to remind you that ONLY VACCINATED members, guest and staff can remove their masks while actively exercising in our facility - per CDC guidelines. We appreciate your diligence in maintaining social distance while unmasked. 

Masking 

Group Exercise Classes:

  • All cycle classes in the Works Cycle Zone will be mask optional.*
  • All other classes where social distancing can be maintained will be mask optional.*
  • Each class that requires a mask, will have a mask icon noted on the schedule and in the member portal. 

All other areas remain unchanged:

  • Masks OPTIONAL when exercising EXCEPT while spotting in the strength training area. (Times when social distancing cannot be maintained)
  • Masks REQUIRED when navigating through the facility.
  • Downstairs Cardio Zone is a Mask-required area. 

You're Spot On!

  • NEW red dots help mark your spot during group exercise classes.
  • If the class is mask-optional it is because your "station" in class remains near the dot.
  • Any time you need to get equipment or move from your spot, please wear your mask.  

Family Aquatic Pool- No More Pods! 

The pods are going away! Social distancing needs to be maintained while in the pool. By making a reservation for you and your family, we can ensure a pleasant and fun experience and it will help us limit the capacity to allow for adequate distancing.  See the member portal to reserve up to an hour in the pool. Reservations now available on the hour or half hour! 

Please note that children 2 and under do not need their own reservation. Families must reserve a spot for each person wishing to swim. 

NEW: To make a reservation in the FAC, starting Monday, you will need to go to "Classes" and use the magnifying glass at the top right and filter by "Category" and find "Swimming Pool". More information on FAC reservations can be found here. 
 

Racquetball

We will now have 2 courts available! Reservations continue in the member portal. 

  • Mask-optional* with 2 players
  • Mask-required for doubles 

 

Hairdryers 

Please feel free to use hairdryers WHILE masked in the lockers rooms.
 



We have more opportunities coming soon with Basketball and other fun options! Stay tuned as our team works to bring you even more! In case you missed it, we are now open Monday through Friday from 5:00AM-10:00PM and Saturday and Sunday 6:00AM-6:00PM. Interested in becoming part of our team? We are hiring!

Thank you for your consistent dedication to your health and fitness!
