RWC opens Monday to community members

Posted: July 31, 2020

Gannon’s Recreation and Wellness Center is welcoming those who hold current memberships to use the facility beginning Monday, Aug. 3, just one week after reopening to our university members.

The RWC will be open with limited hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Those who hold current memberships to the RWC can use the facilities. To accommodate for the time during which the facility was closed, we’ve extended all current memberships by an additional five months.

Please note the following regarding this extension:

All current memberships are eligible for renewal as becomes necessary. However, new memberships and guest day passes will remain unavailable until further notice.

We’ve made modifications to our RWC operations and services that pertain to both our Gannon and non-Gannon community members who use the facility.

Here are some key points

How your workout will be different

Cleaning Procedures
All exercise equipment and machines must be properly sanitized and wiped down following use.
We will have disinfectant spray at each piece of equipment throughout the building. Cleaning towels will also be located both in the cardio and strength areas. Towels can be deposited after use in a specified location where they’ll be picked up to be washed and then reused.

Wellness Checks for Community Members
Community members are required to complete their own wellness screenings by asking themselves the questions found in the daily COVID-19 survey on the LiveSafe app (these do not need to be submitted by community members), and monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19 prior to arriving on campus. If you have symptoms, we ask that you not come to campus.

Upon arrival, all community members will have to undergo a temperature screening via a free-standing thermal imaging kiosk located at the entrance of the RWC. Anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4° F will be asked to leave the facility.
