PA Clubs Reopening FAQ
We are excited to announce 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 will be re-opening our doors to members beginning this 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.
