Facility Update (effective April 8, 2022)
The staff at the Chaska Community Center would like to thank you for your continued patience and support over the past two years and we navigated the many ups and downs of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the measures that was implemented upon reopening from the original lockdown in July 2020 was moving all the cardio equipment into the lower gym to account for social distancing requirements through Minnesota Department of Health. In May of 2021, all of the restrictions from MDH were lifted for gyms and fitness centers; however, out of an abundance of caution and concern for our users, we opted at that time to keep the cardio equipment in the gym to allow for COVID cases in Carver County to slow down. Knowing that we always intended to return the equipment back to its original location, we have been monitoring our gymnasium usage and feel as though the time has come to get back to 'normal.' Staff will take on the project of moving the cardio equipment back into the wellness area May 31st through June 3rd. During this time both the weight equipment, cardio equipment, and lower gym will be shut down. The functional fitness area will still be available for use.
Thank you for your patience through this project! We will continue to communicate through email, website, and Facebook as we get closer to the date.
