Beacon’s COVID-19 Response 

At Beacon your health and fitness is our top priority.  In normal times, we want you to have as much of a fitness buffer for all life brings your way. We want you to be part of a community that holds each other up and is always there for you. In the midst of a global pandemic, this is all the more true. 

We are committed to doing our part in not only keeping you healthy but also caring for the greater Portland community throughout these unprecedented times.  

Here is what Beacon is doing specifically in response to COVID-19:

    • Outdoor Gym – after the warm up all of our classes move outside into our outdoor gym to complete the day’s workout as long as it is safe to be outside.   We also have classes on Saturdays designated as Outdoor only classes. 
    • Masks (updated 5/24/21) are required at all times indoors at Beacon unless a member is fully vaccinated per the CDC’s definition.  All members are required to sign a waiver that they agree to this masking policy prior to attending class.
    • Ventilation (added 11/16) has been increased by keeping doors and windows open to bring in fresh air during classes.  
    • Industrial Air Scrubbers with HEPA filters rated to disinfect the indoor air every 20mins are run inside during workouts.
    • Hand Sanitizer at the entrance and throughout the gym to promote frequent use as well as four bathrooms open for handwashing. 
    • Equipment Disinfection occurs after every use with a commercial product rated for COVID-19.
  • Limit On Gathering Size is 15 members.  
  • Front Desk Staff has been hired to make check in and retail touchless while allowing us to maintain accurate records for contact tracing.  As well as for screening members as they arrive for any symptoms on the Maine CDC’s required questions for attendance.  
  • Daily Screening for attendance is asked of all of our members. 

If you can answer yes to any of the following questions please stay home and call your Primary Care Provider.  If you do not have access to a PCP please reachout to us and we can connect you to resources for care.
