Appointments are encouraged as the lobby is small and there will be a limit of three people in that space.

Covid-19 and GVR

Click HERE for the new COVID-19 page where you will find the mask rules, a list of recent Covid cases on campus, and information links.

GVR welcomes returning snowbirds! Performers are booked, classes are scheduled, the pools are open, and the weather is fine. However, this season will be very different from any other GVR has seen… 

Through the summer, adaptations to the usual program were initiated, tested, and amended. They are now feeling familiar and manageable to the year-round residents, but they do require ongoing patience, accommodation, and generosity of spirit. GVR is determined to continue finding safe ways for members to enjoy the facilities and each other’s company. If you haven’t yet subscribed to the weekly e-newsletter, please do so now (HERE), to stay abreast of changes and new offerings.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT

The Arizona Department of Health Services states that people over age 65 or with serious underlying health conditions should avoid using pools and fitness centers at this time.

GVR facilities are open to the extent that regulations allow.

Occupancy limits have been reduced in all indoor spaces, pools, and spas.

Masks are required indoors. No mask? No entry. No exceptions. Masks must be intact and worn properly, covering the nose and mouth.

Masks are required outdoors except for people who are:

Under age five

Actively playing ball on a court

Engaged in water exercise that will naturally result in a wet mask

Communicating with someone who must read lips

Medically unable

Per the CDC: Face shields are not adequate substitutes for masks. Members who are exempt from wearing masks outdoors may choose to wear a face shield if they wish.

Social distancing (at least six feet) is also required, indoors and out, aside from brief moments of passing in lanes and passageways. Even if the occupancy limit of a space has not been reached, if a member’s preferred activity cannot be pursued with continuous social distancing, the member must wait until others leave the area.

No one may enter or use a GVR facility if they have symptoms of Covid-19 or flu-like illnesses. Members who appear to be ill will be asked to leave. If a member has had close contact with a person who develops flu-like symptoms, we ask that member to refrain from coming to GVR facilities until they have consulted a physician.

All staff are screened for symptoms before contact with members.

Staff will sanitize high-touch surfaces frequently. You will likely observe this work. Some disinfecting solutions are designed to dry on surfaces and will therefore not be wiped or rinsed off. Once dry, these surfaces are safe for skin contact.

Reservations are required to use the fitness centers. As snowbirds arrive, demand for other facilities (lap lanes, for example) may increase and GVR may require reservations for their use.

Due to occupancy limits, guests are not permitted in pools or fitness centers at this time. Tenants, Additional Cardholders, and Resident Youth Cardholders are permitted.

Showers and lockers are available on a limited basis. Please do not linger in showers as others will likely be waiting.

Drinking fountains and ice machines are not available. Bring all the water you expect to need.

Pool noodles and life jackets are not available. Members may bring their own, but may not share equipment with people they do not live with.

Water aerobics is happening on a limited basis and lap lanes/spas remain open during water aerobics sessions.

Congregating or lounging on pool decks is not permitted. Members may briefly linger on the deck to dry off, if no other swimmers are waiting to enter the area.

Inside the centers, select rooms will be pre-set with furniture that members are not permitted to move. GVR staff will spend their time sanitizing surfaces instead of resetting meeting spaces.

Classes, lectures, and meetings will occur, but perhaps not in the location or at the time you might be used to, and the configuration of the furniture may be new to you. Occupancy limits will be reduced in order to maintain social distancing and to abide by current regulations.

Socials are not being scheduled at this time.

Food is not currently permitted inside the centers. Members are expected to remain properly masked at all times when indoors. Water and coffee service has been suspended, but groups are welcome to bring boxed coffee (Starbucks) and are encouraged to carry water bottles. Briefly lowering a mask to drink is OK.

Only those activities that are compatible with social distancing are currently permitted.

Some clubs have resumed activity. Some have declined to do so as they cannot envision a safe scenario. Others are preparing to resume. Please contact your club’s president if you have questions about when or if your club plans to reopen.

GVR IS OPENING AT A GRADUAL AND CONSIDERED PACE

The health and safety of members and staff is GVR’s top priority. All decisions about facility access are being made with that priority in mind, in consultation with information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), and the Pima County Health Department (PCHD). Staff are networking with other active adult communities so we can learn and benefit from one another’s experiences and ideas.
