If you have recently recovered from COVID-19, please use caution and be aware of any new symptoms when you resume exercise. If you had significant symptoms, you should discuss the situation with your primary care provider prior to resuming high-intensity exercise. When exercising, if you develop heart symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, abnormal heartbeats, near passing out or passing out, seek medical care from your primary care provider or Student Health Services. If you are aware of others having these symptoms, please encourage them to seek care.
We know that wearing a mask during strenuous activity can be inconvenient and uncomfortable. Given our campus’s significantly high vaccination rate, state and local guidance regarding masking and the strides we have made with COVID-19 testing positivity, beginning February 1, masks will be strongly recommended but not required for members who have no COVID-related symptoms and are taking part in strenuous activity.

When members or visitors are not strenuously exercising, masks must be worn at all other times and in all other spaces throughout the recreation facilities.
