As of March 16, The Astoria sports complex and the Astoria complex catering hall will be closed as per the mayor and the city of new yorks order. We are not sure when we will be open, but we advise everyone to follow us on instagram and facebook for current up to date information @thecomplexnyc.

We have contacted all members via email about the situation pertaining to your membership. Until the city advises that we can re open, we will be adding the missed days to everyone's accounts. For example, we closed march 16, if the city claims business can reopen on march 26, we will add the 10 days to all memberships.

For soccer field and birthday party reservations, we have called and contacted all reservations that have been made. We have not canceled any reservations nor are we issuing refunds, however we are giving customers the option to reschedule at any time that we have available.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Member,

In light of the growing public-health concern about coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share what we know about this illness so far, and what Astoria Sports Complex has been doing to prioritize your health and wellness. With that in mind, I specifically want to cover the following topics:

  1. What Astoria Sports Complex has been doing to help keep members and team members safe.

  2. What you can do to help prevent illness and stay healthy.

1.  What Astoria Sports Complex Is Doing
At Astoria Sports Complex, we are monitoring the evolving situation and following the guidelines of the CDC in all of our clubs and work spaces to keep our members and team members safe, and our spaces clean. This includes:

  • Increasing our cleaning protocols using products such as Envirox H2 Orange, which is a Sanitizer and Virucide Cleaner that Kills 99.99% of common bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus faecalis, and Escherichia coli) & Kills 99.9% specified viruses (Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2, Influenza A2/Japan, HBV and HIV-1).

  • Adding more Spray Bottles with Envirox H2 Orange throughout our clubs for your use. Your partnership in this effort is welcome, and you’re encouraged to use the sanitizing bottles with our paper towels that are provided to wipe down all equipment — mats, benches, free weights, cardio and strength machines, etc. — before and after you use them.

  • Having Our cleaning and Maintenance Staff periodically spray and disinfect all workout areas and restrooms.

  • Asking members to please refrain from visiting the club if they’re not feeling well, as is always the case when it comes to illness, for their own good and the good of others.

  • Having plans in place should the need arise in any of our communities. We are meeting regularly to refine and update those plans as new information becomes available, and to continue learning as much as we can in order to make informed decisions.

While there is still more to learn about coronavirus, our intent in sharing this is to provide current and accurate information about the situation, and to offer pragmatic steps we all can take to keep our ourselves, our family and friends, and our communities healthy and safe, while minimizing panic.

We all have a responsibility to do our part to limit the spread of this virus and other illnesses, especially to those at a higher risk due to age, compromised immunity, or pre-existing conditions. Additionally, by doing as much as we can to stay healthy ourselves, we support the healthcare providers who will be caring for those in greater need when it becomes necessary.

Your health and happiness are paramount to us at Astoria Sports Complex, and we are committed to monitoring the situation, communicating openly with you, and doing anything we can to help with this situation and anything else that comes our way.

2.  What We All Can Do
Stay informed. It’s important to process the considerable information we’re all receiving in a balanced and thoughtful way. With that in mind, worrying or panicking in response to the overwhelming amount of information can create stress in the body, which is known to compromise immunity. The CDC provides a comprehensive overview of “What You Should Know.”

In order to keep yourself and fellow clients healthy, please be sure to adhere to everyday preventative actions advised by the CDC and New York state government

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Do not spit or blow nose in the pool or jacuzzi.

  • Do not come to class if feeling sick; call or email at least 24 hrs in advance to properly schedule make up classes.

Please stay at home if you are unwell or believe you’ve come into close contact with someone who appears to be unwell. Further advice and updates can be found here

Boost your immune system. Now more than ever, it’s essential to prioritize our health and well-being, and do all you can to boost your immune system so you’re as healthy as possible, in the event you encounter this virus. Research shows that sustaining healthy habits supports immunity and can help prepare our bodies to better fight and recover from illnesses, including coronavirus. These include:

  • Stick to a nutrient-dense, toxin-free diet, including known immune-supportive foods like garlic and ginger. Avoid foods that tend to weaken the immune system, such as sugar, refined grains, industrial vegetable oils, and processed and refined foods, as much as you can.

  • Get plenty of sleep, ideally seven to eight hours a night. This is your body’s time to perform preventive maintenance, which bolsters the immune system. Research shows that repeatedly short-changing sleep by even an hour or two can negatively affect immunity.

  • Get plenty of sunshine and supplemental vitamin D + K2. High levels of vitamin D have long been linked to lower rates of illness.

  • Consider taking additional vitamins, micronutrients, and supplements to support immunity, such as a high-quality multivitamin, magnesium, omega-3 fish oils, vitamin C, elderberry, and digestive enzymes. Probiotics and powdered greens have also been shown to support immune and gut health.

  • Get at least 20 minutes of low- to moderate-intensity exercise a day to prime the immune system. This movement results in the production of more white blood cells, which combat bacteria and viruses, and promotes improved circulation.

Practice good hygiene. These habits include:

  • Wash your hands frequently, and for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water to protect yourself and others from germs.

  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.

  • Keep your hands away from your face, because germs routinely spread when a person touches something contaminated with germs, and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

If you begin to develop cold- and flu-like symptoms or become ill, take care of yourself and minimize the spread to others by staying home. If you think you may have symptoms of coronavirus, call your healthcare provider immediately.

Thank you for your partnership.

In health,
Steve Poliseno
Founder and CEO of Astoria Sports Complex
