NOVEMBER 18, 2020 UPDATE

With the increase in COVID-19 cases in Johnson County, as well as across our state we want to do our part in keeping our community safe. On Friday, November 13th, Coralville Mayor, John Lundell, issued a proclamation requiring masks be worn in all businesses open to the public effective immediately. However, there are exceptions within this proclamation as it relates to exercise. With that being said, Performance Health & Fitness WILL REQUIRE MASKS to be worn at all times while not actively exercising, including while entering and exiting the facility, in the locker room and lobby area. Masks may be removed during your active exercise but we ask that you please respect the distancing guidelines by staying at least 6 feet away from other patrons.

 

As always, we ask that all of our members, guests, and staff to stay home if they are symptomatic or believe they may have been exposed to the virus until they have been cleared by their primary care provider.
