COVID-19 Information

We are fully committed to the health, well-being and safety of all students that choose to work out with us.  This commitment is reflected by the many updates and modifications the staff has planned for the facility and programs.  Although state orders and local public health expectations may change with the circumstances, the dedication and commitment of Student Recreation and Wellness does not waver.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us at  More updates can be found  on our social media accounts (Facebook / Instagram).  To see how the University is responding to COVID-19, visit the Titans Return website. 

Masks are recommended, but not required in the SRWC, Rec Plex, and Albee Hall Pool.

Tips on Proper Wear of a Face Covering During Exercise:

Exercise professionals can share the following tips with their clients (adapted from Boone, 2020; CDC, 2020; Sweeney, 2020)

  • Make sure your mask is big enough to cover your nose and face for proper protection.
  • The mask should feel comfortable and snug around your cheeks and nose. Try not to fidget with the mask while you are working out.
  • If the mask restricts your breathing prior to exercise, it will not be good to wear during exercise.
  • Wash your hands PRIOR to putting on your mask. Soap and water are fine or use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Make sure you do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth when removing your mask. Wash your hands AFTER taking off your mask.
  • It is best to remove your mask by the ear loops because the front of the mask is where germs will collect.
  • A great advantage of a cloth mask is that it can be washed. Exercise enthusiasts who exercise regularly are encouraged to have a few masks so there is a clean, dry mask ready for each workout. Any laundry detergent will be fine for washing cloth face masks.
  • When you talk, keep your mask over your nose and mouth. Do not pull it down as this defeats the purpose of blocking respiratory droplets from being released in the air.
  • If you tend to sweat a lot when you workout (indoors or outdoors), perhaps bring a second mask with you and replace when it becomes damp. It is best to replace a damp mask (from workout sweat or outdoor humidity).
  • For people who wear glasses, sometimes they fog up if too much air is released near the nose of the face mask. Readjust the mask to be snug over the nose. Furthermore, it has been shown that washing glasses with soapy water, without rinsing, and letting them dry prior to wearing a face mask reduces fogging. Also, folding a tissue and placing underneath your glasses may absorb any escaping moisture from your breath.

Face coverings are not required in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, Rec Plex, and Albee pool, except in office areas.

Self-Screening Questionnaire:

All patrons and staff are asked to self-screen for symptoms of COVID-19 and not enter the facility if they are feeling unwell, have known exposure in the last 14 days to someone with COVID-19, or are experiencing any symptoms as defined by the Wisconsin Department of Health (WDH):

  1. In the last 14 days, have you been diagnosed with the Novel Coronavirus/COVID-19?
  2. Have you had a temperature reading of 100.0° Fahrenheit or higher or felt feverish?
  3. Have you lived with or been within 6 feet of someone for 10 consecutive minutes who has been diagnosed with COVID-19?
  4. Have you lived with or been within 6 feet of someone for 10 consecutive minutes who is quarantined or isolated due to suspicion of COVID-19?
  5. Have you experienced any of these symptoms within the last 7 days?
    • Fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, muscle pain, sore throat, fatigue, congestion, or loss of taste or smell. Other less common symptoms include gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

If ‘Yes’ to any questions above, experienced any of the listed symptoms or have a temperature reading of 100.4° or higher, you should remain at home. If you are screening at the facility, exit the space with your face covering in place.
