Temporary Closure: Week of July 25 2022 Programming

JT Scott | 07/24/2022 |

Hi Team,

My partner Chandra just tested positive for COVID this morning, which makes me the absolute definition of a “close contact” and means I need to isolate for 5 days. We haven’t gotten anyone sick at CFSV yet (2.5 years of no COVID transmission at the gym) and we’re not going to change that now.

With Teddy, Nelly, and Michael out this week – and consistent with our long stated goal of “just don’t get anyone sick” – that means classes for this week are cancelled. I’m very sorry for the inconvenience, but as always your safety is the most important thing to us. Open Solo Gym spots are available to anyone to reserve to continue working out on your own.

ANY MEMBER can contact me at info@crossfitsomerville.com and I’ll happily put your membership “on hold” for this week. That means you won’t be paying for classes you can’t take – and (for example) if your membership would have renewed on Aug 2 it will renew on Aug 9 instead, now.

Programming is up on the board, and we’ll send another update next weekend as to the schedule for next week.
