Continuing Covid Protocols

Covid Protocols are still in place at the Laramie Recreation Center.  Herd immunity, the point at which transmission becomes significantly reduced, is estimated to be reached when a population is between 50-80% vaccinated.

We will consider lifting protocols when Albany County has reached a full vaccination rate of 50%  If you would like to monitor current vaccination rates, please see the Department of Health website at the QR Code below.

General Facility Guidelines 

In order to accomplish appropriate social distancing measures and limit risk to both staff and patrons alike we are following detailed plans. Here is what you should expect.

  • Open Hours—We will be open from 5am-8pm M-F and 8am-5pm on Saturday.  We will be closed on Sundays.  Pools open a half hour later and close at 7:30pm weekdays and 5pm Saturdays.  
  • Face Coverings in the Facility--All facility users will be required to wear face coverings over your mouth AND nose unless you are swimming or at your work out station during the hours of 5-7am or 4-8pm.  Please be advised that this can affect your oxygen level and you may not be able to work out as vigorously as your body adapts.  Information about working out while wearing a mask is available on the internet and we encourage you to discuss this with your physician if it causes you concern.  You’ll find some information here https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-safely-exercise-with-a-face-mask-on-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic/ that may be useful.
  • Temperature Check—We will have a person stationed at the front door to do a quick, no-touch temperature check when you arrive.  If you have a fever above the CDC recommendation of 100.4 degrees you will not be permitted entrance.
  • Facility Reservation—In order to meet social distancing standards facility reservations are required either upon your drop in visit or a day in advance for member convenience.  Please see the listing above for equipment and capacities in the facility.
  • Locker Rooms are AVAILABLE!
  • Children under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult—We still welcome families and your children, but with additional supervision.  Thank you for your understanding.

As restrictions relax we will modify our restrictions, so please anticipate changing requirements.  Thank you for your understanding as we work through these changing circumstances.
