Chelsea Piers
Safety-First Commitment

The health and safety of our community drives all that we do — now, more than ever. We have created the following protocols consistent with State regulations and in consultation with independent medical consultants. We are strictly enforcing all protocols so that each of us can do our part to maintain the lowest-risk environment for all. All protocols are subject to change based on revised guidelines from state and local officials.

Cleaning Protocol

Cleaning Protocol

We understand how important the cleaning and disinfecting of our spaces is during this time. Below is an outline of our daily cleaning protocol for every Chelsea Piers venue.

We have always, and will continue, to use hospital-grade cleaners on the EPA List, N-certified to kill COVID-19.
  1. Our spaces are cleaned and all shared equipment disinfected after every class and program.
  2. All high-touch surfaces are disinfected regularly throughout the day.
  3. We will allow 30 minutes between Group Fitness classes for disinfecting the studio and all equipment.
  4. Our Housekeeping and Maintenance teams will also use electrostatic handheld and back-pack sprayers, that efficiently attack microbes, providing 3x more coverage in the same amount of time than traditional efforts.
NanoSeptic continuously self-cleaning skins installed on high traffic door handles and push bars to continuously oxidize organic contaminants at the microscopic level.
Added Enhanced air purification technology::
  1. Installed needle-point bi-polar ionization generators in the HVAC ductwork that help to kill pathogens in the air such as viruses, bacteria and mold.
  2. Upgraded air filters to hospital-grade, capable of filtering particles as small as a virus.
