    I listened to part of Episode 6 on “What Lies Ahead” hoping to get some insight into how The Bay Club plans to provide health club services with Covid-19 once the lock-down phase may end. I didn’t get any information on that subject at all. I stopped listening to this episode because I sensed that I wasn’t going to hear anything on this subject and the video was a bit long. I would appreciate hearing what options are being considered. I looked at the titles and summaries of “What Lies Ahead” from Episodes 1 through 5 and didn’t get the sense that these videos addressed my interest in how my exercise experience at the The Bay Club will be affected in the next 12 to 18 months. What will it be like to exercise at The Bay Club when my club re-opens? Is it worth keeping my membership and paying my dues? It would be nice to know these things or at least understand how The Bay Club is thinking about this. If you have communicated your thoughts on this in some concise way, I’d appreciate knowing where I might find this communication. If you haven’t shared your thoughts regarding my concerns, I look forward to hearing them in the not-too-distant future.
