• Annual and Monthly Memberships -  All members that had one of these memberships prior to the facilities closing on March 17 have had their expiration dates extended for the amount of days closed.  
• Autopay Memberships - All members with autopay memberships in place (at the time of the facilities  closing) were frozen to ensure no payments were taken out during our closure.  Autopay membership accounts will be set to reactivate on the date we re-open to the public.  Invoices dates will be  adjusted to a new day of the month based on the amount of days that were unable to be used from  their last payment due to facility closure.
