With updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health departments, BGSU will no longer require face coverings on its campuses effective Feb. 28, 2022. This includes classrooms, laboratories, libraries, the Student Recreation Center and Perry Field House, gathering spaces and areas outside of individual, enclosed spaces like residence hall rooms and individual offices. Recommended precautions are now tied to risk levels. At low and medium levels, universal indoor masking is no longer recommended as a public health practice. However, individuals may choose to wear face coverings at any time. Learn more about BGSU's updated health and safety recommendations at the BGSU COVID-19 Response Website.

What to Expect at Recreation and Wellness Facilities

At BGSU, the health and safety of our communities are the top priorities. There will be inherent risk in all activities, however, a calculated and thorough campus health and safety 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 continues working in conjunction with university officials to implement plans so we can all stay well together.

All schedules and information on this site are subject to change.
