COVID-19 Update

Dear Sun Oaks Community,

Our team is dedicated to offering the best experience we can while providing the safest and healthiest facilities possible.  

We constantly strive to make Sun Oaks a premier location to help families and individuals achieve their best life through HEALTH, HOPE and COMMUNITY.

As we are all facing concerns about the spread of COVID-19 our Sun Oaks staff has been working on solutions for our membership to follow all guidance from our county, state, and federal levels.  With constantly updated information and events we are doing our best to understand the landscape as it relates to our community.

This family of staff and members has been incredibly generous and resilient over the last few years. Horrendous fires in Trinity and Shasta counties brought out the best of our humanity, from housing folks, sharing our amenities and facilities for displaced families, and fundraising and housing. Donations for those affected were pulled off with swift and resolute alacrity.  We truly are a special people who live in a unique and beautiful place. We have a responsibility to continue our progress forward.  

Due to official directives we are enacting the following:

We are suspending all Group Fitness programs for the next 14 days. 

Both President Trump and the CDC requested Americans abstain from gatherings of 10 or more for this period of time, an attempt to significantly mitigate much of the potential damage from COVID-19. 

Sun Oaks will remain open for member use during this period unless regulators force our closure. 

Social distancing is recommended for all Americans during this period however, so we request that all members keep distances of 6 feet from one another while exercising or using equipment at the facility. 

Along with these policies we will continue to put extra time and energy into disinfecting and sanitizing the facility. We also request that members use safe hygiene practices, regularly using hand sanitizer and washing hands, while also abstaining from handshakes, high fives, or general usage of the facility if you are ill or showing symptoms of illness. 

Thank you for your dedication to both Sun Oaks and our greater local community in general. This is an extraordinarily difficult time that will take significant effort from all of us. We are beyond proud to be a part of a community that can stand strong in the face of such adversity.

    Hi sun oaks.
    I need to find out what is happening with your school swim lessons…
    Will you still be having these class sessions this year due to the closure?
    His class’ swim dates were late april -I believe. (However due to Covid-19 school wont be in session then)
    Perhaps it’s been rescheduled?
    Please let me know if you can, that way I can contact the school if necessary, (I already paid).
    He will be bummed if it cant happen but I do understand, given the circumstances…
    Thanks so much and take care!

      Hi Syd, our club is closed and all of our employees are temporarily laid off. You will need to contact your school regarding the payment of the lessons. At this time we do not have a plan in place but due to the current COVID-19 conditions and restrictions I unfortunately do not think they will be happening. So sorry!
