On May 13, the Wisconsin Supreme Court overturned the state’s Safer at Home order. Although this order is no longer in place, COVID-19 remains a serious public health concern. We appreciate your patience during this period of closure and want to ensure you that we are working towards a safe and effective way to reopen the Campus Recreation programs and recreational opportunities at the Falcon Center.

Campus Recreation is currently working on a plan to open the Fitness Center in a phased approach. Once a plan to open the facility is approved, the Campus Recreation staff will share it via its website, email and various social media outlets. A reopening of the Falcon Center will follow safety guidelines from the CDC, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and Pierce County Public Health and incorporate best practices in the health and fitness industry to reduce the spread of disease.

We understand the positive benefits that exercise contributes to your health and wellbeing and look forward to a safe return for everyone. Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this challenging time. Be well.
