  • Members will find increased hand sanitizer access.
  • Members will be encouraged to wipe down lockers before and after use with provided sanitizing spray.
  • Ceiling fans will remain off.

    • Loss of taste of smell
    • Diarrhea (3 or more loose or liquid stools/day)
    • No personal contact with someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 within the last 14 days
  • Check-in will be a “no touch” process where members will swipe their campus ID badge or UFC-issued ID card to enter.
  • Campus ID cards are required at check-in for all employees and students; UFC-issued ID cards are required for all other members.
  • Facility access is provided once a member completes a card swipe at the designated check-in station and has his or her access validated by the front desk staff.
