COVID-19 Safety Protocols

What do I Need to Know Before I Visit Maine Pines?

  • On November 4th, Governor Janet Mills released an executive order stating that, for the time being, cloth face coverings must now be worn in public regardless of how far apart you are from other people. This includes tennis and fitness centers. Masks must be worn in all public areas in the club for the entire duration of your visit. This includes the lobby, locker rooms, tennis and pickleball courts, aerobics room, and weight room. https://www.maine.gov/governor/mills/news/following-record-covid-19-cases-governor-mills-announces-new-face-covering-executive-order

Covid-19 Exposure Policy

Our policy at Maine Pines Racquet and Fitness with respect to Covid-19 notification is as follows:

  • Should we be made aware that an individual who has recently used our facility has tested positive for COVID-19, Maine Pines will review its record through our front desk software and reach out to notify anyone, who within a 14-day period, played with that individual on the same tennis court or took a group fitness and/or yoga class. 
  • If the individual who tested positive for COVID-19 played in a USTA tennis match at the club, the Maine USTA League Coordinator will be notified by Maine Pines.
  • The Maine CDC also works directly with individuals who tested positive and provides guidelines to them about contacting those with whom they have had direct contact.  (Maine Pines will not become involved in that process due to privacy considerations)
  • With respect to privacy laws, specifically around HIPPA, Maine Pines will not publicly release the name of anyone who has tested positive. 
  • If you have been made aware of a direct contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19, we recommend you contact your doctor immediately about next steps.
