We have enjoyed being open and sharing the gyms with you these past few months. Unfortunately as the pandemic changes so do City/County guidances and mandates. Stay up to date by reviewing this page, we will update it as needed.

Masks and Vaccinations

Bay Area + LA Gyms: Proof of Vaccination and Masks Required

San Francisco County, the City of Berkeley, Contra Costa County, and Los Angeles are now requiring proof of vaccination for all gym users.

Due to the complexity of having gyms in multiple counties, with differing policies Touchstone has decided to implement one policy at the following gyms: Mission Cliffs, Dogpatch Boulders, Great Western Power Co, Pacific Pipe, Berkeley Ironworks, Diablo Rock Gym, The Studio Climbing, LA Boulders, Cliffs of Id, Hollywood Boulders, and Verdigo Boulders. This means that your gym might have a more restrictive policy that is required in your county.

You can either show your physical card, your digital card or a photo of your card at the front desk. If you do not wish to show your card each time you enter, we can, at your request, place a note on your account that we have seen proof of vaccination. This is optional and we will only note we have seen your card if you give us permission to do so.

Children under 12, who are ineligible to be vaccinated, will be exempt from the requirement. There are no other exceptions at this time.

MetalMark: Proof of Vaccination Required to go Maskless

Due to the spread of the Delta variant, we will now be asking for proof of vaccination before you can remove your mask in all Touchstone gyms. You can either show your physical card, your digital card, or a photo of your card. If you do not wish to show your card each time you enter, we can, at your request, place a note on your account that we have seen proof of vaccination. This is optional and we will only note we have seen your card if you give us permission to do so.
