We are committed to ensuring the health and wellness of our members, patrons, employees and the community at large. In light of the outbreak of the Covid-19 Coronavirus, we have have changed many of our protocols in order to ensure the health and safety of all.
- All visitors of Rangeley Health and Wellness will be asked to complete a health screening to ensure all who enter the building are free of symptoms of Covid-19. We will ask that patrons not use the facility if they have had any symptoms of COVID-19 in the past three days or are at higher risk of having COVID-19, in order to protect employees and other patrons.
- As per the state mandate, all who enter the building must wear a face mask consisting of two layers of fabric. Face coverings must be worn at all times while in the building to prevent the spread of the virus. The only exception to this is while using the heated pool, as face coverings are not recommended.
- We have capped the number of patrons participating in fitness classes and groups, as well as the number of patrons who are able to use the pool at one time in order to ensure adequate social distancing.
- The number of patrons using the gym at one time will be limited to 8 people; to ensure adequate physical distancing per state mandates. We strongly recommend that you call ahead and “reserve” a time slot.
- While our staff diligently cleans and sanitizes the facility and its equipment, each patron is asked to thoroughly clean each piece of equipment thoroughly immediately following its use.
- The drinking water fountain will not be useable during this time, and patrons are encouraged to bring their own water bottles with them to work out.
- We encourage “touchless” purchasing options through our online Wellness Living platform, to reduce touching of common surfaces.

Receiving a negative COVID-19 test results is reassuring and can alleviate anxieties around the infection, but negative results are only a snapshot. A negative test today does not guarantee a negative test tomorrow. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention the following are ways to protect yourself and others:
- Wash your hand often
- Avoid close contact (separate by at least 6 feet)
- Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Clean and disinfect
- Monitor your health daily; if you are feeling sick notify your doctor within 24 hours
- Stay home as much as possible
- Know your health risk; factors such as older age, smoking, obesity and high blood pressure can negatively affect health outcomes which increases the risk for getting Covid -19. Take steps to reduce risk factors if you can.
