Desert Camp

Protocols and guidelines for Desert Camp Community Center

According to the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), Maricopa County is now considered to be at “Moderate Community Spread” for COVID-19.

With the achievement of that key benchmark, indoor gyms and many other businesses are now allowed to reopen with new guidelines.

To minimize the spread of COVID-19 among residents and staff, these are the changes that have been implemented for Desert Camp Community Center:
• Face coverings are recommended, but not required.
• All residents are required to check in at the front desk in the lobby.
• All residents must complete a facility agreement and COVID-19 waiver to visit the community center. Children ages 14-17 need to complete a waiver in the presence of a guardian.
• All staff have been trained to participate in cleaning and disinfecting.
• Hand sanitizer stations and disinfectant wipes are located throughout the facility.
• Desert Camp is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
• Fitness room occupancy is limited to 6 residents per hour:

  1. Residents can call 480.342.7178 to reserve an “on the hour” (e.g., 7 a.m. to 7:45 a.m.) workout slot up to one day in advance.
  2. Please limit fitness room workouts to 45 minutes.
  3. Additional equipment has been removed to comply with physical distancing requirements.
  4. Bring your own towel, mat and water.
  5. Residents will receive cleaning supplies to wipe down machines and equipment before and after use.

For everyone’s safety, please stay home if you have a fever or other symptoms of COVID-19, such as chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fatigue, headache, muscle/body aches, runny nose/congestion, new loss of taste or smell, or nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or if you have had close contact with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19.
