With the expansion of people eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine, Osceola Medical Center is preparing for an uptick in requests for vaccinations. Although we applaud the expansion of eligibility, we caution that the supply remains far below the demand and it could take several months to reach everyone. Even with the eligibility change, OMC will continue to manage vaccinations by contacting our highest-risk patients in the 18-64 year-old age group as we continue to follow CDC eligibility guidelines for vaccinations. (Officially it's 16+ but Moderna, the version OMC uses, is not currently approved for people under 18.)

We're extremely excited to share with you that Wild River Fitness will be reopening effective Monday, January 18th, 2021! We want to sincerely thank you for your patience and grace during our closure, and this incredibly difficult past year.

With that in mind, please watch for more member emails in the coming days and week about important details and expectations regarding our reopening on the 18th. Our safety guidelines are essential in allowing us to reopen successfully.

A few important details about reopening that we’ll share now include:

  • Billing will resume upon reopening (this will vary depending on what your monthly payment date is, i.e. the 1st or 15th of the month, etc.). If you were on hold at the time of our closure on Oct. 8, 2020, this will continue unless you communicate otherwise.
  • Masks/face coverings will be required for members and staff, without exceptions, while working out and in classes. The only time a mask can be lifted is to catch a quick breath and for sips of water. While this may be disappointing, it’s what we need to do to keep ourselves and surrounding communities safe upon reopening. Keep an eye out for virtual class options if this policy can’t be tolerated.
  • We are working on class scheduling. Keep an eye out on the TeamUp App as we get things set up.
  • Self-screening for COVID symptoms will take place upon entry of the facility using available signage.
  • 24/7 facility access will be available using your fobs.
  • Water fountains will remain closed, but the water bottle filler is available for use.
  • Bathrooms and showers will be open with limits on occupancy-watch for signage.
  • Childcare is no longer available.
  • Capacity will be limited to no more than 25 percent occupancy.
  • Similar to before, our expectation is that equipment is cleaned before and after use, using available gym wipes throughout the facility. Staff will periodically clean equipment.
  • More details to come- please continue to watch for emails…

Finally, we want to say that we're very excited to reopen and see everyone again! If you have any questions for us, please don’t hesitate to reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (715) 294-2164.

Dr. Nguyen was amazing. He is so friendly. He answered all your questions. He is very professional. I ... first time we've ever seen him, so I would definitely recommend him as a provider. Our experience was nothing but great, the whole time.
