PA Clubs Reopening FAQ
We are excited that fitness clubs have been cleared to open per Governor Wolf’s phase green plans to re-open Pennsylvania. All fitness clubs are permitted to open at 50% capacity, subject to a number of guidelines and rules designed to help clubs operate as safely as possible. We are thrilled to announce that acac West Chester and Eagleview are open as of Friday, June 26!
The team at acac has been actively monitoring and preparing for the safe and effective re-opening of our clubs. With continual review of the recommendations from state and local health officials, the CDC, and our Emergency Response Team, we have put into place a comprehensive plan that meets or exceeds all guidelines set by the state of Pennsylvania for a safe return to exercise. For more information on our plans to re-open, and answers to your questions including our new safety and sanitation protocols, please read below.
