Our commitment to safety

The health and safety of our members and staff are our top priority.

Please note the following for a safe visit for everyone:

  • Please stay home if you are feeling unwell. Before entering the facility, staff and participants must use the self-screening tool. Members and staff are not allowed entry if they present with COVID-19 symptoms. 
     
  • Mask policy. Participants using indoor UM sport and recreation facilities can remove their face masks when engaging in physical activity and while in their individual workout spaces (i.e., at equipment). Movement in and between equipment/activities will require masking at all times.
     
  • Cleaning and Disinfecting. Members are asked to clean equipment before and after each use

If you are not ready to come back for in-person workouts, we invite you to visit our Virtual Health and Fitness page for online workouts you can follow from home.
