Other Info

GYMSTARS will comply with all mandatory guidelines put forth by the New York State Department of Health, and will comply with recommended best practices whenever possible.

Despite the measures that we have taken, there is still the potential for an employee or customer to test positive for COVID-19. For everyone’s safety, employees are required to report a positive test result, and we ask customers to please do the same.


If there is a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, we will be in direct communication with both the NYS and NYC Departments of Health and follow their guidance for how to proceed. If someone presents with possible COVID-19 symptoms, they will be directed to a quarantine area where they will stay with a staff member while awaiting transport home. All facilities that the individual camper was in contact with will be vacated, deep cleaned, and disinfected per CDC guidelines.
