THE
WOODSIDE STANDARD

While life has changed, we have challenged ourselves to emerge stronger than before and to serve you better upon your return to the Club.

We would like to introduce the next version of The Woodside Standard, our response to creating a safe environment for our members and for our team of employees.​

AIR QUALITY & TURN OVER RATE
Our entire property has been reviewed by a third-party, nationally accredited (NEBB certified) Air Quality Testing agency. This agency reviewed each one of our systems, and confirmed that our HVAC systems are running not only efficiently but optimally. We have achieved the recommended goal of fresh air turnover in each space, which is between 4 and 6 times per hour. This agency has recommended Woodside as a benchmark for other companies to mimic our air treatment and air handling process.

HVAC
The 40T HVAC unit that controls the South Facility fitness floor was recently replaced. The upgraded unit will allow for more fresh air intake, improve air temperature, humidity levels and air circulation.

MERV 13 FILTERS
We upgraded our HVAC filters to a hospital-grade level in both the Main Clubhouse and the South Facility. MERV 13 filters are electrostatically charged and constructed of materials that are more efficient than standard poly-cotton pleated or fiberglass filters. They are able to filter out particles smaller than one micron in size. The frequency of filter replacement across the entire property has been increased from quarterly to monthly

U/V LIGHT SYSTEM
We also added a U/V light system in all of our HVAC air ducts across the property to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses through the air. The system reduces odors, pollutants, chemical odors, bacteria and viruses by treating the air as it passes through ductwork before it is transmitted through vents. U/V light in the correct dosage causes coronaviruses to mutate and effectively inactivate.

BIPOLAR IONIZATION TECHNOLOGY
We most recently installed an additional, one of a kind Bipolar Ionization system from Global Plasma Solutions. Integrated into our HVAC system, this technology disperses ions that cluster around microparticles and ultimately deactivate harmful substances like airborne mold, bacteria, allergens and viruses. This technology has notably been installed at the Pentagon, the White House, many universities across the country, Google headquarters, Boston Medical Center and other hospitals around the world.

CLEANING PROTOCOL
In addition to refining our existing cleanliness protocols, we have increased cleaning staff and strategically stationed them in high trafficked locations to continuously clean and disinfect high touch areas multiple times a day throughout all hours of operation. All Woodside employees are required to support all rigorous cleaning protocols in all areas of the Club.

DISINFECTION PROCEDURES
Medical-grade, EPA-registered disinfectants which are designated effective against COVID-19 with a kill time of less than one minute are used for all continuous cleaning processes. We have also introduced next-generation electrostatic handheld and backpack sprayers for use by our cleaning team that efficiently attack microbes, providing 3x more coverage than traditional cleaning systems in the same amount of time. This equipment is used to disinfect all of our surfaces and spaces and fitness equipment during nightly closing procedures.

DISINFECTANT WIPES
Members are asked to use disinfectant wipes on equipment after use in conjunction with Woodside’s cleaning protocols. Our disinfectant wipes, approved by the EPA for use against COVID-19, are proven to kill 99.9% of viruses, bacteria and fungi on equipment while also having the safest EPA Toxicity Rating. Disinfectant wipes are stocked and available in multiple locations throughout the Club.

HAND SANITIZERS
Members are asked to use touchless hand sanitizer stations upon entering the Club and frequently throughout their visit. The hand sanitizer solution we use, which has added Aloe Vera, kills up to 99.9% of germs and includes 70% ethyl alcohol, above the CDC’s guidelines of 60%.

PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT (PPE)

GLOVES
Gloves are meant to avoid cross contamination. We prefer that our members concentrate on vigorously washing their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after workouts as opposed to wearing gloves throughout the facilities.

EMPLOYEE TEMPERATURE CHECKS
All Woodside employees are temperature checked upon their arrival to the Club. 

MEMBER MASKS
Given the CDC’s recent updated guidance, Woodside will no longer require fully vaccinated members to wear masks while entering/exiting the Club and in common areas. Woodside will not be checking member vaccination cards upon entry so we ask that you abide by the honor system. We strongly recommended continued masking for members who are not fully vaccinated. Of course, members are welcome to continue wearing masks regardless of vaccination status.

RESPECT THE SPACE OF OTHERS

UTILIZING COMMON SPACES
Please be mindful of other members in close proximity.

MONITORS
Woodside developed a position that is responsible for ensuring The Woodside Standard is met, and to hold members accountable for all member policies, procedures, rules and regulations. The Monitor helps maintain safe distancing parameters indoors and assists with cleaning on fitness floors/pool areas. The Monitor will also correct any member behavior that is in violation of established member policies, rules and regulations.

GUESTS
We understand that you like to share your club with your friends and families. However, member usage is top priority. As a result, guests will not be allowed to accompany members to the Club or the outdoor pools this summer.
