While the global health crisis caused by COVID-19 continues to wane, and with more than half of the adults in NYS now fully vaccinated, we look forward to putting the pandemic in our rear view. For now, our focus remains supporting the health and wellbeing of our employees, members and customers. Click here to review SPORTIME’s COVID related guidelines, which have been continuously updated as we have received new directives from governmental and other health agencies and organizations. We hope that our COVID protocols can be eliminated in the near future. Until then, and notwithstanding all the precautions that SPORTIME will continue to take, due to the nature of the virus, the risk of contracting COVID-19 remains. Please be safe, respect others and follow the ongoing precautions, protections and protocols.
