California has fully reopened on Tuesday, June 15th and has moved beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy! That means a lot of changes here at Touchstone and here is what you can expect:


Masks and Vaccinations

We have enjoyed being open and sharing the gyms with you these past few months. Unfortunately as the Delta variant is on the rise, the masking requirements for some counties are changing.

Bay Area Locations Require Proof of Vaccination for Entry into Gyms:

With San Francisco County, the City of Berkeley, and Contra Costa County now requiring proof of vaccination for all gym users, Touchstone will be implementing this policy at all our Bay Area locations starting Monday, September 6th.

Children under 12, who are ineligible to be vaccinated, will be exempt from the requirement.

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.

Masks are required regardless of vaccination status.

Proof of vaccination now required to go maskless at MetalMark:

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.

Thank you again for choosing to support us and for being a part of our community. We hope that you all have been enjoying your time back at the gyms. Let’s continue to take care of one another.

People are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Fitness Classes and Clinics

We have added in-person fitness classes and climbing clinics back to the calendar! This is a slow process so we appreciate your patience as we get back to it. We will be adding more classes to the online calendars when they are available.
