Hello, everyone--I want you to know that nurturing the health and well-being of our overall community is, and always will be our highest priority. In that spirit, I want to address concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as it relates to the day-to-day operations of our stores, training programs, and community events.
OUR STORE We have always taken pride in our clean and well-run stores, and we know that cleanliness is more important than ever right now. We’re taking guidance from the CDC, which recommends regular cleaning as one of the most important preventive measures we can take. We are cleaning our stores on a continuous basis throughout each day, focusing especially on high-touch and highly trafficked surfaces like door handles, checkout counters, fit benches, bathroom surfaces, product displays, apparel hangers, 3D foot scanners, keyboards, and all touchscreens. We will also continue to stock disposable wipes and alcohol-based hand sanitizers for use by employees and customers throughout the day.
COMMUNITY RUNNING EVENTS Currently, we are looking into how best to move forward with our scheduled group events, with the promise that we will monitor situations at both the national and local levels, communicate with local officials and event planners and stay on top of CDC recommendations for events and social activities. Look for direct communication here and on our social media platforms for updates regarding our in-store events scheduled for April.
OUR PEOPLE At the center of our company’s core values is to put people first, and it’s something we take to heart at all times. We are doing our best to continue to serve you and our community during this very uncertain time. We’re encouraging sick team members to stay home, reiterating guidelines from the CDC regarding hand hygiene, coughing and sneezing etiquette, and keeping the lines of communication open.
FOUR WAYS TO HELP
- Like us, please stay up to date with all local, state, and federal advisories. Follow CDC and health professional guidelines of maintaining good hygiene, including frequent washing of your hands, and avoid touching your face, mouth, and eyes.
- Talk to your doctor before coming to training programs or group events if you're feeling ill or have any concerns about joining us.
- If you're sick or more susceptible to complications, please stay home, rest, and recover.
- Keep running. Running and other fitness regimes are a great way to support your health year-round. Follow CDC and other medical advice on proper diet and other nutrients and supplements to build your immune system. We’re doing everything in our power to make sure you feel safe and comfortable in our store. You can rest assured that we will continue to put the health and well-being of our customers, employees, and all community members above all other considerations as we continue to monitor events and make decisions going forward.
