North Port: The Morgan Family Community Center will re-open to the public next week
The fitness center will be open during operating hours, with two 30-minute closures, once in the morning (10:30am) and once in the afternoon (3:00pm), for additional cleaning. Access to the cardio and weight equipment will be staggered to provide for physical distancing. The teen lounge will also be available for patron use, with limited capacity.
Programs with attendance of 50 or less that can meet physical distancing guidelines will also be restarting. Times and availability of instructor-led classes may be modified, please call the Morgan Family Community Center at 941-429-PARK(7275) for specific class information. Drop-in programs will resume with limited capacity based on space and activity.
Achieve Anything memberships will restart as of May 26. Valid passes or memberships will be automatically extended the same amount of days as the facility was closed. Any passes that would have expired within the closure will automatically be credited for the number of days the pass was valid, but the patron could not use due to the closure.
Facility rentals with an anticipated attendance less than 50 will be permitted. Any reservations occurring between 5/26 and 6/7 with an anticipated attendance of 50 or more people will be refunded without cancellation fees.
“Staff have worked hard to create and implement this re-opening plan, so we can get back to the business of helping promote health and wellness opportunities available at the Morgan Center. New and returning patrons to our fitness center will also find that we took advantage of the temporary closing to complete the scheduled equipment replacement,” said Laura Ansel, Marketing & Outreach Coordinator with Parks & Recreation. “We’ve missed everyone and appreciate the understanding and patience of our community during these challenging times.”
At this time, the George Mullen Activity Center will remain closed to the public through the summer, however, the annual GMAC summer camp program will be in operation at limited capacity beginning June 8. Registration for that program is currently full. Those interested in being added to the waitlist can call 941-429-PARK(7275).
