City staff will begin a multi-phased approach to reopening the City's three community centers and athletic programs starting Monday, April 12. The goal of the phased reopening, based on public health guidance, is to safely allow activities to resume while mitigating the risk of new COVID-19 cases.
Phase 1 of the plan limits the number of participants in each activity, requires preregistration for all activities, and includes a mandatory screening process, including temperature check and verbal health questionnaire. Pre-registration begins Monday, April 5, and is required for all activities in the centers. Some amenities at the community centers may not be available.
Registration for an activity cannot be completed more than one week in advance. In an effort to accommodate as many patrons as possible, reservations will be limited to no more than 3 sessions in one week per activity. Per Tennessee Pledge and Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability guidelines, the number of participants in an activity or class has been reduced to comply with proper social distancing recommendations.
Individuals will be restricted to no more than 90 consecutive minutes in the building at any given time. Individuals will be limited to one activity in the morning and one afternoon activity to ensure the maximum time allowance is not exceeded.
Activities available during our reopening phase will include: lap swim, therapy pool, pickleball, fitness room, classic fitness class, circuit fitness class, Fit & Toned, stretch, billiards, homeschool and preschool PE, open gym and afterschool activities. Additional activities will be phased in at a later date.
Time slots are as follows and must be reserved by calling 423-434-6237.
