COVID-19 Update: Reopening Saturday Aug. 22nd

Update: August 19, 2020

Dear TurF Community,

Following the voluntary closure of both locations on Saturday, August 15th, our team has been monitoring their symptoms and to date, there have been no reports of staff experiencing symptoms linked to COVID-19.

The one staffer that did test positive is recovering in isolation at home. We continue to send our love to them and look forward to their return to good health.

After reviewing our protocols with Public Health and undergoing a professional surface and airborne disinfecting service at both locations, we feel confident in the precautions we are taking and can safely reopen our locations for business.

Join us on Saturday, August 22nd for the reopening of TurF Kitsilano at 2041 W 4th Avenue. We will continue digital classes through the weekend and host in-studio classes starting Monday, August 24th. TurF Downtown at 1281 W Georgia St will reopen shortly after on Thursday, August 27th with a full cafe and bistro.

TurF Kitsilano reopens Saturday, August 22. Open daily 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
TurF Downtown reopens Thursday, August 27. Open daily 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

A heartfelt thank you goes to our staff, teachers, and guests for their vigilance and support. We extend our unending gratitude to the healthcare professionals, first responders, and public health researchers who are on the frontline daily against COVID-19.

Thank you for sending your support, feedback, and questions over the past day. We're working rapidly to gather information and share it with our community.

Prior to receiving a positive test result for COVID-19 on Saturday, August 15th, the single staffer last worked at the Kitsilano location on August 4-6 and August 9-12 without symptoms.

If you are concerned about possible exposure to COVID-19, the BC CDC recommends to assess your symptoms and consult your local health professional and resources. For more information, check out:

Dear TurF Community,

We learned today that one of our staff at the Kitsilano location tested positive for COVID-19. We’re working closely under the guidance of BC Public Health and the CDC to ensure TurF is a safe place for staff and guests.

While not required, we’re voluntarily closing all TurF locations to protect the safety of our community and will re-open once we’ve taken all precautions. All in-studio classes will be canceled and moving to a digital schedule. Stay tuned for a revised schedule and current members will be contacted this week with an update on memberships.

These are unique and exceptional times. We love our community deeply and the most important part of all this is your health and safety.

We will continue to update you through our Instagram, newsletter, and Thank you for your continued love and support. <3
