New Health Officer Order
June 22, 2021
Last week, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a new Health Officer Order for a Safer Return Together at Work and in the Community. The Center for Health & Fitness (CHF) will be following the County’s guidance and best practices for reopening gyms effective Wednesday, June 23.
Mask Requirements:
  • Fully vaccinated members will NOT be required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors at CHF
  • For members who are not fully vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown will be required to wear a mask indoors and outdoors at CHF
  • All members, visitors and staff will be required to wear a mask in public spaces (lobby, elevators) since the 514 building has several health care tenants and Silverado (long term care facility)
CHF’s Medical Advisory Committee, made up of BCHD’s Chief Medical Advisor, Dr. William Kim and other local physicians, recommended tracking vaccination status and allow fully vaccinated members to exercise without masks.
