Campus Recreation operations will be adjusting to follow university, local, and state ordinances for gyms, recreation centers, and pools. Given the variety of guidelines in place, students should anticipate substantial changes including decreased occupancy capacity, modified membership benefits, and altered or suspended facility, equipment, program offerings, and the continuation of a variety of online programming opportunities.

Wipe down equipment before and after use. Towels and disinfectant spray (effective against COVID-19) will be available throughout the Rec Center. Scroll down to read full cleaning protocol.
To practice physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet from others in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Respect and follow safety procedures, guidelines, directional signage, and instructions from employees. Avoid physical contact (high fives, handshakes, etc.)—distanced air fives encouraged!
