How We Are Transitioning into New Standards


Effective Monday, September 27, 2021, the St. Louis County Department of Public Health (DPH) issued a new Face Covering Order. The order, consistent with the CDC recommendations, requires all individuals ages 5 and older, regardless of vaccination status, should properly wear masks indoors or in enclosed public spaces like public transportation, etc. Learn more here.

How are we transitioning into our new standards at THE HEIGHTS?
-Staff will continue their rigorous cleaning routines in order to keep our members and guests safe and healthy.

-For everyone's safety those working with children will continue wearing masks while indoors.
-We will keep additional hand sanitizing stations readily available throughout the facility.
-Face masks or coverings are not required, however, we are strongly encouraging anyone not fully vaccinated to wear a face mask or covering.
-While social distancing is no longer required we acknowledge many of our members and guests may still feel hesitant around others without masks on. For that reason we ask that everyone do their best to respect others personal space while visiting our facility. 
-Please remember if you are sick or not feeling well to stay home.
-We will continue to accept only credit cards at this time.
