To meet the COVID-19 guidelines that are mandated by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and out of an abundance of caution, many of our amenities and activities have changed and most of our spaces have new lower capacity limits based on the guidelines.

Respect and follow the safety procedures, guidelines, directional signage, and instructions from staff.

Observe physical distancing of 10 ft or more:

  • Follow the new capacity limits for the exercise and weight rooms.
  • Avoid physical contact (high fives, hand shakes, basketball games, etc.).

Wipe down equipment before and after each use with disinfectant & towel provided.

A red circle on exercise equipment = do not use
(It needs to be disinfected by Tostrud staff).

A green circle on exercise equipment = ok to use
(It has been disinfected by Tostrud staff).

Face mask policy in Skoglund/Tostrud:


Wash hands often following CDC recommendations.
