The Rush Fitness Center Is Now Open With Safety Guidelines in Place
Members will have their temperature taken at check-in, and they have to maintain social distancing and follow equipment cleaning guidelines. Signage is in place to guide members through proper social distancing protocols. While only 50 members will be allowed to be in the center at one time, per City of Chicago regulations, this number is typical of normal capacity during peak times. Therefore, the center does not have plans for members to book their work out times in advance. Staff and members are required to wear masks, including while working out.
