Update and COVID-19 Protocol and Rollback to Stage 2

November 14, 2020

The governor has moved the State of Idaho back to Stage 2.  The Community Recreation Center will continue to be open but there are changes that will be taking place so we can comply with this new order.  Our hours of operation will remain normal: Monday–Friday, 6:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.; Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.; Sunday, 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Facility patrons and program participants are required to wear a cloth facial covering or mask, while entering and moving about, as well as while staging in various facility areas prior to classes.  NOTE:  Participants will be allowed to remove masks during classes and activities requiring physical exertions (i.e. cardio vascular/weight training, dance/exercise classes).

If the following protocols and guidelines affect you and you would like to discuss your membership options, please call the front desk at 208-232-3901 ext. 4.  Bank drafting accounts will continue to draft until you notify us of something different.  Cancellations must be received by the 24th of the month for us to stop your draft next month.
