A MESSAGE TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE PHEONIX CLUB FROM

 PRESIDENT ERIC HIGGINS

 
 

Hi everyone, with the growing concerns of the Corona 19 virus, and after receiving some excellent advice from our Professional Health Advisor, Dianne Body, the committee has made the decision to put the club into recess, as of now.  This decision will be reviewed at the end of May unless information from the Ministry of Health says it is safe to meet again before then.

 

This decision has not been taken lightly but the committee feels it would be irresponsible of us not to take this advice seriously.  I am sure that some members will think that we have made this decision too soon, but we would rather you criticize us for this, than not acting soon enough and one or more of our members becoming ill.

 

As Dianne rightly points out we are all of an age and have health issues, which puts us in the high risk category, so we do need to take care of ourselves.

 

Dianne recommends keeping up your exercises at home, also going walking, eat well, keep washing your hands often, and donít get too close to people.  The recommended distance is 1   -   2 metres.

 

These are very unusual times for us, so look after yourselves and your loved ones, and we will look forward to seeing you all back at the Gym when safe to do so.

 

Take Care and Good Health

 Eric Higgins
