COVID 19 Prevention Policy:

If you are experiencing symptoms of the virus (fever, difficulty breathing, dry cough, and tiredness):

  • Immediately go home and self-isolate until you are fever free without the aid of fever reducing medications. During this time there should be absolutely no exposure to any co-workers or friends or visits to the gym under any circumstances.
    1. We recommend using the CDC’s Self Checker Guide (middle of the webpage) to help you make the decision of whether or not you should seek medical care.
    2. *** Please note that this system is not intended for the diagnosis or treatment of disease or other conditions, including COVID-19.
  • If you do not have a test to determine if you are affected and contagious, you may return after all three of these things have happened:
    1. You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of no fever without the use medicine that reduces fevers)
    2. Other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath have improved)
    3. at least 7 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared
  • If you are tested to determine if you are affected and contagious, you return after after all three of these things have happened:
    1. You no longer have a fever (without the use of medicine that reduces fevers)
    2. Other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath have improved)
    3. You received two negative tests in a row, 24 hours apart. Your doctor will follow CDC guidelines.

  • Employees must notify HR immediately ( to record symptom information and discuss potential available sick leave if you exhibit any symptoms:
    1. Employee name 
    2. Email
    3. Starting date of symptoms
    4. Your supervisor’s email
  • If you receive a COVID19 positive result: 
    1.  Notify HR and your supervisor immediately and work with them to identify and notify any co-workers or gym members you may have been close to in the last 10 days. Those employees should then self-isolate themselves and follow the steps above.
    2. Ascent management will meet to discuss whether the following steps should be taken:
      1. Deep cleaning of affected area but continuing to remain open
      2. Affected area closed for 24 hours. Deep cleaning prior to re-opening to areas the public.
      3. Both of these are unlikely, the past year’s data shows that we are unlikely to spread the virus in our environment.
