“…the CCBA team has done a brilliant job redesigning the layout to meet the new protocols and ensure balanced safety and fitness.” – Jason S.
Cleaning & Disinfecting
In addition to existing continuous cleaning protocols, we have added an hourly cleaning and disinfecting schedule throughout the day and overnight.
We will be using EPA-registered disinfectants which are designated effective against the COVID-19 virus with a kill time of 3 minutes or less.
We disinfect the studio and all equipment between group fitness classes.
Most of our cardio equipment is now set up in the Pat Walsh Gymnasium. Please wipe down your machine or equipment before and after use with a disinfecting wipe provided.

Our HVAC system is equipped with Bipolar Ionization technology, which helps continuously disinfect the air by filtering out droplets that may contain virus particles. This helps reduce airborne transmission of COVID-19 by actively cleaning the air.
It’s the same system that’s in use at institutions such as Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Boston’s Children’s Hospital!
What you can expect
Reservations are still required for the pool and group fitness classes.
Most of our cardio equipment is now up in the Pat Walsh Gymnasium! We have left some pieces on the second floor and in the first floor game room. All equipment is spread out so we can maintain a safe distance.
We have re-organized and spaced out our equipment to help with social distancing. Our new layout is roomy and spacious!
We also have lots of new equipment! As of November 2020, we have added 14 new pieces of strength training equipment in the circuit training rooms. As of January 2021, we have added 5 new pieces of cardio equipment in the gym upstairs.
Along with staff continuously cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting, we are asking our members to wipe down their machines and equipment with provided disinfecting wipes before and after use. Thank you for helping keep our facility as clean and safe as possible!
Please use the provided hand sanitizer when entering the building. Hand sanitizing stations are placed at the entrance and exit of each room and there are touchless stations throughout the building.
Please use disinfectant wipes on equipment and machines before and after use. Our disinfectant wipes are approved by the EPA for use against COVID-19. They are available throughout the building.
Members and staff are required to answer a health questionnaire every time they visit the CCBA to confirm. The questionnaire covers symptoms of COVID-19, exposure to symptomatic individuals, and exposure to individuals who have traveled outside of New England. Anyone who been exposed will be asked to leave the CCBA and must quarantine for 10 days. If it has been 14 days since you have received your 2nd COVID-19 vaccine, you do not need to quarantine after traveling, but you must still follow all other COVID-19 guidelines.
Members and staff are required to bring their own face masks. Members and staff must wear facemasks at all times on the first and second floor, including while using any equipment, while on the pool deck, and while in the locker rooms. Masks are allowed to be taken off during group fitness classes on the third floor, on most cardio equipment, and in the pool.
Thank you for your cooperation!
To encourage social distancing, physical markers are placed in the group fitness studios and gym. Posters are placed throughout the building to remind everyone to maintain at least 6 feet of social distance.
