Fitness Center & Therapeutic Pool Closure November 2020

Unfortunately we have come to the difficult decision of temporarily closing our Fitness Center and Therapeutic Pool.  We feel the COVID-19 pandemic is out of control in the State of Wisconsin, and local area.  Action must be taken to contain the spread of the virus. 
 
In support of Governor Evers’ executive order 94, issued November 11, 2020, Western Wisconsin Health is temporarily suspending on-site use of the Fitness Center and Therapeutic Pool, effective Monday, November 16, 2020 until further notice.  Some online and outdoor fitness center activities will be available during this time. 
 
  • We will notify members when we feel it is safe to reopen the facility.
  • Recurring EFT membership payments will not be charged during this time. 
  • If you purchased a year membership we plan to extend your membership to reflect the total time of our closure.
We encourage members of our community to stay home as much as possible and only make trips when necessary, such as to go to work, pick up groceries, or refill prescriptions.
 
In addition, the Governor requests that we:
  • Avoid gatherings of any size between individuals who are not members of the same living unit or household, to the extent possible.
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet between individuals who are not members of the same living unit or household, to the extent possible.
  • Wash hands often.
  • Cover coughs.
  • Frequently clean high touch surfaces and objects.
  • Wear an appropriate face covering, covering your nose and mouth.
  • Take available opportunities to provide material and emotional support to fellow Wisconsinites for whom staying home poses financial and psychological hardships.

We apologize for this inconvenience and hope you stay well. Stay tuned for ongoing virtual and outdoor fitness options that will be made available starting next week. 

For future updates we plan to communicate via email, Facebook, and our Webpage.

If you have any questions please call Matthew Fenske at 715-684-1641 or email matthew.fenske@wwhealth.org.

Thank you for your understanding and hopefully we will see you soon!
