SamFit Announces Limited Re-Openings

SHARE

SamFit’s facilities in Albany, Corvallis and Newport will begin operations, as approved by Gov. Kate Brown, on Thursday, Dec. 3, at 10 a.m. SamFit-Lebanon will reopen at a later date as approved by the governor. This is according to the new county-by-county reopening standards from the governor.

At this time, Benton and Lincoln counties are in the COVID-19 ‘high-risk’ category, which allows indoor fitness centers to operate at 25% capacity. SamFit will operate at this capacity while still providing ample space for maintaining physical distancing between members.

Linn County remains at ‘extreme-risk’ which prohibits any indoor fitness facility from operating. SamFit-Lebanon will reopen once Linn County is upgraded to ‘high-risk.’

“While change is imminent, our goal remains the same: ensuring the health and wellness of those we serve,” said Alyssa Wink, director of wellness and fitness for Samaritan Health Services. We want to thank you for your support, patience and excitement as we reopen.”

In accordance with Samaritan Health Services policies, SamFit will restrict the types of face coverings allowed in its facilities. Disposable masks are allowed, as are cloth masks that fit snugly, with two or more layers. Masks with a filter insert are allowed as well.

Masks with valves. face shields, neck gaiters and bandannas will not be allowed.

Billing will begin for the open sites on Saturday, Dec. 5. Members with questions, comments or concerns regarding their account can e-mail their local SamFit facility.

SamFit Lebanon billing will remain paused until that facility is allowed to reopen. Members can email their local SamFit site for membership assistance.

SamFit is also able to offer limited shower availability at its open facilities. Group fitness classes on-site will remain on pause until the individual facility’s home county meets ‘moderate’ levels as identified by the governor.

Some virtual classes can be found on our SamFit YouTube channel. Live virtual classes will start soon! Keep an eye on SamFit’s Facebook page and samfit.org from more information.
