Patrons will swipe their own ID or scan their digital ID from the Rec Sports mobile app to enter the facility. Staff will continue to monitor access at computer terminals. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the facility and in each restroom. Social distancing is a priority in the locker rooms in order to continue to keep them open. Only one swimmer per lane will be allowed. Lanes must be reserved through my.recsports.unt.edu Climbing and bouldering will be allowed only in specific zones delineated with tape. Some weight equipment has been moved to the Gym Court 1 to allow for more space in the weight room. Every other piece of cardio equipment will be unavailable to allow for social distancing. All equipment checked out will be cleaned upon return and set aside prior to use. Staff will be seen cleaning throughout the facility with heightened attention to high use touchpoints. Custodial staff cleaning protocols have been increased throughout the day and overnight. We have purchased a disinfecting machine to be used throughout the facility on a regular basis.
