City of Johnson City to reopen Memorial Park Community Center Nov. 9
The City of Johnson City is using a multi-phased approach in its plan to reopen the Memorial Park Community Center.
The center will officially reopen on Monday, Nov. 9. Operating hours at the center will be Monday-Friday from 7 a.m-6 p.m with limited capacity and a 90 minute time limit for members. Pre-registration will be required for all activities by calling ahead at 423-434-6237. Masks, temperature screenings, and signing COVID-19 waivers will also be required while certain amenities will remain closed.
Amenities that will not be available during the first reopening phase include open gym, open swim and pool parties, water fountains/refill stations and coffee bar, and family locker room. One female and one male locker room will be available at a time. Congregate meals will continue at the drive-through only. Meals may not be brought into the center. The Gathering Room will also remain closed.
The City says the center has been deep cleaned and sanitized. Additional hand sanitizing stations have been placed within the center, and wipes are available for use in the fitness room, during fitness classes and the billiards room. While staff will be cleaning high-touch areas throughout the day, everyone is asked to wipe down equipment before and after use.
Below is additional reopening information from the City:
·Individuals will be limited to no more than three sessions in one week per activity as well as one activity in the morning and one afternoon activity to ensure the maximum time allowance is not exceeded.
·Masks are required at all times, except when swimming, exercising in the fitness room or during an exercise class.
·One-way traffic requires visitors enter at the recreation/aquatics entrance. People using the pool will exit through the door by the activities room; all others will exit through the Senior Center main lobby.
·Members are asked to practice social distancing at all times.
·Members must bring their own equipment (exercise mats, pickleball paddles, etc.)
