Safety
What We're Doing to Help Keep You Safe

While we aim to reopen the Club as soon as possible, the safety of our members and staff remains our top priority. Although our Club has always maintained rigorous safety and cleaning standards, we are now enhancing our cleaning and safety protocols to align with Health Canada, Ontario Ministry of Health, and the City of Toronto's COVID-19 guidelines. Please note that all procedures outlined below are subject to change based on the aforementioned guidelines.

And remember, we’re all in this together, so cleaning at the Club will need to be a collaborative effort between our staff and the members when we return. We look forward to seeing you back at the Club again soon.
