Reopening Cleanliness and Safety Standards

Your safety is our number one priority. As we reopen Montage Wellness Center to members, we encourage you to review our new protocols and improvements we have made to each facility.

All cleaning and masking protocols follow guidelines and best practices set forth by the state of California, the Monterey County Health Department, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula leadership, doctors, and infectious disease specialists.

In addition, we have created a real-time capacity status counter so our members can easily check to see how full each facility is. View the capacity status now.

The following are some of the major improvements and details you will want to know about how we are meeting your needs.
