An Update from The Clark Sports Center to our Members and the Community
June 20, 2020
We hope that you and your family are staying safe during this unprecedented time. The ongoing COVID-19 situation has been a challenge for everyone — including the Clark Sports Center.
We have been closely monitoring the guidelines from the CDC, Governor Cuomo, the New York State Department of Health, and the Otsego County Department of Health. Although the Sports Center is eligible to open on July 1st as part of Phase Four, the guidelines issued by the State of New York make it extremely difficult to assure members and guests of a safe environment for health and wellness, and recreational activities. Dramatically reducing the number of people who can access the facility; wearing face masks during moderate to intense exercise; utilizing social distancing; and severely limiting access to various areas of the Sports Center prohibits our team from maintaining our organization’s high standards on safety and cleanliness. As a result, we have decided to remain closed until at least September 8th.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BASSETT MEDICAL CENTER PHYSICAL THERAPY CLINIC WILL REMAIN OPEN, and patients are asked to use the main entrance door to access the clinic. Additionally, while we have remained closed to our members and the public, as a service to Bassett Healthcare employees, we are providing showers 24/7 to be used after their shift and before they go home to their families.
We genuinely appreciate everyone understanding the need for the Clark Sports Center to remain closed out of an abundance of caution. We are deeply committed to working with our members and the community to stop the spread of Covid-19.
