COVID-19 Updates



Per UW-River Falls and UW System policies, face-coverings are required through March 11th. Face-coverings will be optional starting March 12th.

Most people can perform their regular workouts while wearing a face covering, which will provide protection from virus spread for everyone. It is essential to remind exercise enthusiasts to monitor how they feel during the workout and to take particular notice if they feel dizzy, lightheaded, or short of breath Individuals with a pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular condition are encouraged to take caution when exercising with a face mask (Capritto, 2020).

Exercising with a Face Covering: Safety Do's and Dont's

In addition to the patron cleaning before and after use, Campus Recreation Staff will clean all equipment surfaces multiple times per day.  High touch surfaces (door handles, turnstiles, etc.) will also be cleaned continuously throughout the day.  Falcon Center Operations Staff will completely disinfect the facility every night and all cleaning procedures will be tracked for assurance.

We use Clorox Commercial Solutions Clorox Total 360 Disinfectant Cleaner and Peroxide Multi Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant. These products are a one-step, cleaning, disinfectant, which is effective on hard and soft surfaces and safe for skin contact.

Campus Recreation reserves the right to refuse service/access to any patron.

Campus Recreation will operate with a zero-tolerance policy throughout the reopening phases. Failure to follow the posted guidelines and policies will result in being asked to leave, possible suspension for the remainder of the reopening phase, and no refund.

We understand that change is hard and our phased approach to re-opening has been embraced by some and has constrained others. Your health and safety is our number one priority and we are confident that this phased approach is the best way to prioritize the health and well-being of our members, staff, and the communities we serve.

We have been and will continue to work with local health professionals, our cleaning supply company, UWRF leadership, public health personnel, and college recreation colleagues to ensure best practices are maintained. And we will continue to listen to members’ concerns and making adjustments as needed. Please let us know what we can do to make you feel more comfortable and safe.
