Sunset Athletic Club is one of many clubs who belong to the Oregon Health and Fitness Alliance. Lobbyists representing OHFA have contacted Gov. Kate Brown’s office to civilly and respectfully request immediate, limited reopening of health and fitness facilities in all Oregon counties.
Can you please spare one minute and send a message to Gov. Brown in support of SAC and OHFA?
On Monday, January 11, 2021 Sunset Athletic Club opened outdoor tennis, outdoor basketball and the main outdoor pool (83 degrees warm) to Active SAC Members by reservation. Time slots will be available from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.

Members ages 16 and over may now make reservations for lap swimming in the outdoor pool. The pool will be set with lane-lines in place – four lanes/one person per lane. 45 minute time-slots may be reserved using your SAC Member’s Portal.

On January 12, 2021 Governor Brown and the OHA extended closure of gyms and health club facilities at least two more weeks. The latest update continues to place Washington County in the Extreme Risk category. This means there will be no immediate changes to our status. Stay tuned for updates!
Though to our knowledge, we have not experienced cases at SAC, we hope these measures will help to reduce risks to those vulnerable. We plan to be part of the solution by closely following this mandate.
This is difficult, knowing the burden it creates on everyone involved. But, we are dedicated to our role as community partners – and especially in our commitment to protecting the health and wellness of our members and staff during this challenging fight with Coronavirus.
OHA announced a new health and safety framework using four different risk levels for counties based on their level of COVID-19 spread—Extreme Risk, High Risk, Moderate Risk, and Lower Risk—effective December 3.
The Oregon Health Authority reexamined county data to determine which counties qualify for each risk level on December 3, following the end of the 2-Week Freeze. In each subsequent two-week period, the Oregon Health Authority will examine and publish county data weekly, but county risk levels will not change until the end of the second week. In the first week, counties will be given Warning Week data to prepare for potential risk level changes. In the second week, county risk levels will be updated based on that week’s data.
We thank you for your continued support!
Chuck, Carleen and the entire SAC team.
