COVID-19 Information

Student Recreation and Wellness staff have been busy planning for a safe return to the gym for its users.  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 in preparation of reopening 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 studentrecreation@uwosh.edu.  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. 

Mask is REQUIRED

Face coverings are required at all times in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.  Non-compliance may result in a 2-week suspension from all Student Rec and Wellness facilities, programs, and services.
These actions are in accordance with directives from the Emergency Operations Committee and the UWO Titans Return Plan.  Sanctions will be communicated by the Dean of Students Office.  Repeat offenders of this policy may face additional sanctions

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.
