The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) has released public health requirements for reopening businesses who have paused operations since June 27, including fitness facilities. The City of Cottonwood will reopen the Cottonwood Recreation Center (The Rec) on Wednesday, August 12, adhering to the requirements outlined in the ADHS phased reopening guidelines. *
The fitness floor at The Rec will be open to guests Monday through Friday from 4:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the weekends with the following modifications:
Occupancy will be limited to 57 individuals at one time.
Guest temperatures will be taken upon arrival.
Guests must keep 6 feet of physical distance between themselves and other guests.
Face coverings are required at all times. Guests who cannot perform activities while wearing a face covering should find an alternative to The Rec.
Group exercise classes will continue to be streamed online for members wishing to take part in classes.
Areas of the facility that will remain closed to the public at this time include:
The game room
The rock wall
The indoor pool
The event hall
The Rec staff knows how important these facilities and programs are to Cottonwood. Yavapai County is currently classified in the “moderate” transmission category,* which has guided these procedures and restrictions. We will continue to monitor the data and as our transmission category changes we will adjust our services accordingly. With the current restrictions in place children 13 and younger are encouraged to find alternatives to The Rec. All unused memberships have been extended to account for the days missed due to closure.
For more information, please call The Rec at 928-639-3200.
