CHICO, Calif. -- Athletic Horizons in Chico is looking to jump back on the beam soon.

“We actually had a staff meeting last week with the staff that are going to be working,” said gymnastics instructor Brittany Hubbard. “We came in and we disinfected our entire gym.

The gymnastics center says it sent a plan to reopen to the Butte County Public Health Department. It says it will wait for the Department to give the center the green light to open or wait until the county moves into phase three.

“We have set up stations on the floor so people know to stand six feet apart, we also put them on the gymnastics floors and we now have one-way traffic that is coming in and out of the gym,” explained Hubbard.

The center says it will keep a limit of six students in a class, only allow forty people in the center at one time and spend twenty minutes between classes disinfecting.

“We want to keep the hope alive for our students and families. We miss them, we love them and we cannot wait to reopen so that they can come back and do gymnastics again,” said Hubbard.

Hubbard says it closed its doors long before California’s Stay-In-Place order. USA Gymnastics recommended the gym to close to decrease the spread of COVID-19.

The gym says it has not made any money while closed.

It also says many gyms have reopened across the country that are governed by USA Gymnastics, but it will continue to wait for the county’s green light.

Athletics Horizon says people can pre-register for classes. It also says they will offer private lessons when open.
