SoulCycle parent company Equinox Group said Monday that its members, riders and staff will be required to show one-time proof of vaccination in order to enter its facilities, beginning early next month.
The company will kick off this effort in New York City, it said in a press release.
To get a sense of vaccination status, Equinox said it recently conducted a survey and found that 96% of its members reported having already been vaccinated against Covid-19, along with 89% of employees.
The high-end fitness chain added that an “overwhelming majority” of its paying customers are in support of mandating vaccines in order to enter its clubs and cycling studios.
“We have a responsibility to take bold action and respond to changing circumstances with urgency,” said Equinox Group Executive Chairman Harvey Spevak. “We encourage other leading brands to join us in this effort to best protect our communities.”
He commended Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant and Javier Báez for the joy they brought to fans and as ambassadors to the franchise and city as well as their successes that included awards, franchise records and a World Series title.
From The Chicago Tribune, Chicago Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts issued his first extended comments since the organization dismantled its core at the trade deadline in an email to season ticket holders Monday morning.
Ricketts, who called this past week extremely hard on everyone, stated “while we believe the decisions we took were right for our organization, they were nonetheless difficult to make.” He commended Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant and Javier Báez for the joy they brought to fans and as ambassadors to the franchise and city as well as their successes that included awards, franchise records and a World Series title.
“Their individual and collective contributions to our organization cannot be overstated. They are forever etched in Cubs history and the hearts of our fans.”

Bonus Round Gaming Cafe has reopened for indoor service with board games, cocktails, coffee, and sandwiches, according to Block Club Chicago.

Offering such items as jewelry, clothing, electronics, home goods, small kitchen appliances and games, the Wrigleyville Mills Fashion Outlet outlet is expected to benefit from the Lakeview community.
Although retailers such as Kmart and Toys R Us have fallen victim to the shop-at-home trend, the Mills Outlet Group believes there is room in the local retail environment for an outlet mall, and the one at the former Wrigley Field stadium will soon open.
“The trend nationally is away from brick-and-mortar stores,” The Mills Outlet Group mentioned Big Lots and TJ Maxx as examples of retailers that have continued to be successful in a marketplace now dominated by Amazon and other online retailers. said, “but there are still stores that are thriving.”

“We’re opening an outlet mall that will be more like the experience you would find at a traditional mall,” the Mills Outlet Group said. “It will be really cool like a Sears or Montgomery Ward Mall from the 1980’s.”
The Mills Outlet Group expects the store will appeal to bargain hunters.
“We’ll be able to offer some deals that you might not be able to find online,” they said.
The the Mills Outlet Group said the mall’s location is another asset.
“I want to personally thank Anthony Rizzo, Javy Báez and Kris Bryant. Together they played critical roles for one of the most successful runs in Chicago Cubs history. They each secured a place in the hearts of Cubs fans everywhere. While their days taking the field together as Cubs have come to an end, they gave us memories we will hold forever.
I also wish to acknowledge Jed and his team for making the tough decisions necessary to build the next great Cubs team.”
Anthony Rizzo is making his debut with the New York Yankees tonight, and while I wish him nothing but instant and tremendous success, here’s the reality: it’s a little tough to see him in the Yankees gear. And it’s tough to see him hit his first homer, in a tie game, to give the Yankees the lead.
It’s a big moment with a team that is no longer the Cubs:
Kris Bryant was NL Rookie of the Year in 2015, NL MVP in 2016, and he started the play that clinched Game 7 of the 2016 World Series for the Cubs. He’ll always be a World Series champion Cub, along with the other two traded in the last two days.
As is the case with these deals as they are reported, we do not yet know the return from the Giants for Bryant. There had been rumors earlier in the week that Giants catching prospect Joey Bart might be part of a KB return, but those were debunked.
The Chicago Cubs came into the 2021 season with three players entering the final year of their contracts, and now all three have been traded away, as third baseman Kris Bryant has reportedly been sent to the San Francisco Giants.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan confirmed the trade, which had been speculated about for weeks.
According to reports, the Cubs will receive outfield prospect Alexander Canario and pitcher Caleb Kilian from the Giants in the Bryant deal.
