COVID-19 Test Verification

Recreational Sports requires all members to show the screen of their ResponsiBLUE app displaying their COVID-19 screening check results in order to enter Recreational Sports facilities. Members are not required to have taken a COVID test prior to using any Recreational Sports facilities. This step will be in addition to swiping your MCard, Rec Card, or checking in with the Rec Sports app. Anyone with a red check will not be allowed entry. You can download the ResponsiBLUE app here.

Undergraduate students, along with graduate and professional students starting February 16, will need to show the screen of their ResponsiBLUE app displaying their COVID-19 testing status upon entering any Recreational Sports facilities. The University is requiring all U‑M Ann Arbor undergraduate, graduate, and professional students complete weekly mandatory COVID-19 testing through U‑M. Undergraduate students will either have a “COMPLETED” or “EXPIRED” status displayed on their screen at the end of the symptom check process. For more information about ResponsiBLUE and COVID-19 mandatory testing, please visit the Campus Blueprint website.

We know that health and safety are key for everyone right now, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure your experience is the best it can be.

UM Rec Sports App

We’ve created a new U‑M Rec Sports app to allow for contactless entry to the facilities, make court reservations, find building hours and more. Download the app by searching for “UM Rec Sports” in the iPhone App Store or the Google Play Store for Android.

Keeping You Safe

  • Staff will be wearing face coverings at all times while on shift and are required to complete a mandatory health screening before coming to work.
  • Download our new U‑M Recreational Sports app and use the member ID barcode for contactless entry and to reserve your space in the facility or pool. You can also still bring your MCard for access.
  • We’ve loaded up on hand sanitizer, wipes, and have purchased new aerosol sprayers to clean equipment often throughout the day.

How You Can Help

  • Stay home if you’re feeling sick which might include coughing, fever or shortness of breath
  • Face coverings are required while working out with the exception of drinking, showering and swimming
  • Only bring what’s necessary for your workout like your water bottle and a towel, if you prefer
  • Help do your part by wiping down your equipment before and after you’ve used it
