Dear Waldron Members,

Nothing is more important to us than your health and safety. Like you, we are monitoring the spread of the coronavirus, known as COVID-19. The virus continues to be a concern across the state and the nation. Our area of Virginia is now in the Phase 2 stage of the Coronavirus response. We are so happy that this allowed us to reopen the Waldron Wellness Center on Friday, June 5, with the following provisos regarding gyms and fitness centers:

We will not have classes or child watch until things are more settled. Dues will remain suspended until we can begin to approach full service, unless you ask that they not be. Several members have indicated that they wish to continue paying dues. If you do, please email this information to
