COVID-19 UPDATES


Taking Care of Maize & Blue

Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our campus community. You’re encouraged to know and practice habits that support the Culture of Care. We can all do our part in keeping the U‑M community as healthy and as safe as possible. Visit the Campus Maize & Blueprint for more information.


Facilities Status

Recreational Sports is excited to welcome you back to our facilities starting Monday, September 28, 2020. We know that health and safety is key for everyone right now, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure your experience is the best it can be. That said, things will look a little different when you visit. Reservations will be required to work out and to swim, face coverings will be required at all times while working out, and our facilities will be operating at decreased capacities, just to name a few changes.

Modifications We Made

  • Face coverings are required at all times except when drinking, showering or swimming in the pool
  • Modified facility hours to allow for increased cleaning during the day
  • Facility capacity limits established to assist with de-densification
  • Cardio and strength equipment have been moved to be 10 feet apart; selectorized and some cardio equipment can now be found on gymnasium courts in CCRB, IMSB and NCRB
  • Floors in strength, stretching and some racquetball areas have been marked with 10′ x 10′ orange boxes to allow for physically distanced activities for one individual at a time
  • No spotting in cardio and strength areas will be allowed at this time
  • Added plexi glass barriers to Welcome Center desks
  • Increased locations for disposable wipes for user cleaning
  • Touchless hand sanitizer stations
  • Contactless check-in with new UM Rec Sports app
  • No cash payments allowed
  • Increased staffing levels for cleaning
  • PPE and required health screenings for all employees
  • One person per swimming lane
  • Bins will be available at each swimming lane to store personal belongings and mask
  • Swimming equipment will be cleaned between reservations
  • Face coverings must be worn to and from a swimming lane

Activities not available

  • Court activities (basketball, volleyball, badminton, racquetball, squash, wallyball, etc.)
  • Indoor programming (Group‑X, Intramural Sports)
  • Indoor rentals
  • Saunas

Next phases

We will continue to evaluate when additional court activities and other traditional services will be allowed.  This will be based on a number of factors, including but not limited to: Federal, State & University requirements, the status of campus operations, COVID data & trends, evaluation of current operations, operational needs and resources available.


UM Rec Sports App

We’re excited to share that we’ve created a new U‑M Rec Sports app to allow for contactless entry to the facilities, make facility and pool 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.
