Reopening the Rec | Fall 2020

What to Expect as BGSU Reopens to the Rec

As BGSU repopulates campus, the health and safety of our communities are the top priorities. There will be inherent risk in all activities, however, a calculated and thorough return to campus plan allows us to mitigate much of this risk. With direction from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of Ohio and Ohio Department of Health, and the Wood County Health Department, Recreation and Wellness is working in conjunction with University officials to implement a multi-phased reopening plan so we can all stay well together.

Facility capacity limits and equipment spacing that support physical distancing, along with cleaning protocols, good health practices, and additional policies are in force to provide the safest environment possible. Face coverings are required throughout the facility including while exercising. Specific information about policies and future phases of our reopening plan are anticipated as the fall semester progresses. All schedules and information on this site is subject to change.
