COVID-19 Policies and Procedures:

Our priority is the health and safety of our community. Commonpoint Queens follows the guidance provided by the New York State Department of Health, New York City Department of Health, CDC, and the New York City Department of Education. As Governor Kathy Hochul has lifted the statewide mask mandate, we would like to make you aware that mask wearing will now be optional for our members, guests, and visitors. Participants will no longer be required to wear masks in our youth sports classes, but may continue to do if they wish. All instructors and staff are fully vaccinated. Some class sizes may be limited to allow sufficient social distancing measures. If NYC guidelines require mandatory closure of our building during the Spring session, we will make all reasonable efforts to make-up missed classes by arranging an alternate date. If our schedule or space does not allow, then class credits based on our closure days will be issued to your Commonpoint Queens account.
