Facility Usage Plans and Procedures

As we return to campus, please visit this page frequently for reminders on what to expect during your time in Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex.

Check Up. Mask Up. Back Up. Wash Up.

All members of our community are working together to keep our campus safe. These four guidelines are central to the operation of Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex. 

  • Check Up
    • Only use Angela if you've filled out your daily health assessment and are free from any new symptoms or a fever.
  • Mask Up
    • Wearing a mask applies to using Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex. 
    • Make sure your mask is clean and dry. Bring extra, clean masks to change into in case your mask becomes wet from sweat or heavier breathing. Damp masks are not only less effective, but they may make it more difficult to breathe.
    • Initially, you may want to shorten your workouts as you get used to exercising in a mask.
    • Adjust the intensity of your workout or increase your rest periods between sets or intervals.
    • Change your environment. If you are planning a high exertion workout or if there are portions of your workout that you can do outside, you may be more comfortable in a setting where a mask is not required.
  • Back Up
    • Equipment is spaced out to help foster physical distancing.
    • Only a select number of cardio machines (treadmills, recumbent bikes, gauntlet step mills) will be available.
  • Wash Up
    • Surfaces and equipment will be cleaned regularly.
    • Student employees will sanitize cardio equipment before and after use by our community members.
    • Our Building Services staff conduct a thorough deep clean of Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex each night.
