At this time the health club and clubhouses remain closed.
Please understand that the protocol and requirements for opening the clubhouse and/or health club are far different than the opening of the pools. While great effort and expense were required to open the outdoor pools, the opening of indoor facilities requires even greater expenditures to be safe and compliant with the current protocols
Aside from the labor and cleaning requirements, there are equipment upgrades for filtration and disinfecting of the air which must take place. Please know that we have been working towards an eventual re-opening. We have met with contractors to determine what exactly is necessary to add to our existing systems, and have placed orders for equipment. Unfortunately, much of the equipment is back-ordered due to the worldwide demand
Additionally, due to the situation with Covid-19 and the current spike in infection rates, the board is unwilling to subject our community, and staff, to unnecessary exposure at this time. It is our hope and expectation that the vaccines, and improved understanding of the virus by the medical professionals, will bring closure to the pandemic and allow us to resume a more normal lifestyle soon.
We are all yearning for the return to normalcy!

Due to the Management Office remaining closed to outside visitors and shareholders, we have made many new and exciting updates to the Online Portal. Registered website users can access the following functions through their online portal.
Many shareholders are wondering why the health club has not opened yet. The department of health and NYS have put very strict guidelines on opening health clubs. Similar to how they put guidelines on opening the pool, they've put guidelines on gyms/health clubs. The guidelines set forth are significantly stricter than the pool guidelines that were required of us during the summer. The requirements include specific HEPA filtration being installed in our AC/Heating system. This by itself is holding things up as this equipment, like much of the COVID19 equipment is on a severe backorder.
Aside from just the equipment there are other hurdles we're working on as well. The requirements include contact tracing and the 6' spacing of the gym equipment. As you are aware our facility is very small and there are also hurdles in that as well. Similar to the pool the health club opening will be required us to hire staff members to be stationed at the building while the health club is open, signing people in and out of the building and asking them contact tracing questions. We appreciate all your patience and we're working through all these details as quickly as we can. Please check back for updates here. All shareholders will receive a notice as soon as we have an anticipated opening date.
Our priority is to get this open as soon as possible while ensuring all shareholders remain safe while using the facility!
