Here from Western Kentucky University
I have sound now
city closed all recreation centres we followed suit
The state made our decision
We went based off our county
administration determined we weren't an essential service
Creighton - Once we got our first community spread in Omaha, we decided to shut down auxiliary facilities.
The university system made the decision
State made the decision in Texas
Administration made the calls.
university system decided
Yes - peer institution - Auburn is our sister institution. Auburn University at Montgomery
Santa Clara Univeristy- County made the shelter in place order at Noon, than we closed at 4pm. University went to online classes a week before
Now - city ordinance
university made the decison and we followed their directive
Kennesaw State: Our Vice President of Student Affairs did not want the recreation facilities to be “ground zero” or the petri-dish that spread the virus to the remainder of campus or the Kennesaw Community
Washington State University - state issued shutdown
Campus Emergency Response Team at Xavier University made the decision for us the same day the university made the call to go remote for the remainder of the semester
Boise State: our city closed their rec facilities on the same day that the university went all online. We lost our student employees and were unable to operate.
I have sound now. Thank you.
University of Washington: Governor made the state mandate to close all gyms/recreational facilities.
UT Tyler: we saw a nearly 80% drop in facility usage after coming back from Spring Break. after "reading the room" our Leadership decided it best to close. the next day the governor suggested all gyms should be closed
At San Jose State-We closed rec center on 3/16 mid day. The directive came from the University.
Here at WKU, our University leadership made the decision. We started with closed to programming and still open for use, but then transitioned to closed completely and no student employees able to be paid
Creighton we were going to move our free weights to our basketball courts
Virginia Tech-- we closed when the governor said recreation centers and fitness centers to close
Southern Oregon University: We were trying to do that but the students did not follow those guidelines. So we closed.
We put out order signs on every other cardio machine
Yes, extra cleaning, social distancing
Longwood University: Once the Governor recommended recreation facilities within the state either close or limit to 10 people our Administration in collaboration with our department decided we would close.
We were asked to close.
We place more hand sanitizer out for about a week. For one day before we closed we put "out of order signs" on every other cardio machine for social distancing at Georgia Tech
SCU- we ended up stopping our equipment check out services and posted signage reminding patrons to keep distances between their workout spaces. Cancelled out fitness classes when the university went online.
University of Cincinnati: school made the decision to close us, likely in conjunction with governor's directive
At San Jose State we instituted social distancing on cardio equipment and on pool deck with lounge chairs.
TAMUC- every other piece of equipment, capping the amount of people in our weight room area, utilizing our MP room for stretches or bike space. We closed before we could implement.
we moved our ID Scanners so patrons could scan their own IDs. Staff still had to press the button to open the gate to let patrons in so they were still interacting
At U of I, the announcement to online classes came 3/11…we pushed to be able to close completely and were able to do so starting 3/16
For us, the shutdown hit right before the end of spring break and then we went into maintenance mode and used distancing during it but then shut down even with students this past week
At KU, we did an abbreviated shutdown cleaning week once the university closed
and within that week, we became like everyone else
SCU- we stayed about about a week after our university went online. Only closed down when the shelter in place order from the county was announced. We tracked our attendance numbers for that week, and we were down to about 200-300 entries about, our usual was 1000-1200 a day.
Creighton - We also deactivated our handscanners, we were in the process of implementing RFID scanners so there were no exchanging of cards
Was anyone using masks for student employees? Where they provided by the department or provided by the individuals?
UTRGV..... We went down from 100+ employees to roughly 20 with minimal hours.
Our chancellor made the decision we will continue to pay student staff through May 15 based on their weekly average since Jan 1
No masks were used at A&M Commerce
Xavier University is committing to pay all students through May 3rd for their normally scheduled hours, regardless if they are working remotely or not. However, we are asking all of them to help with social media campaigns
@Stephanie - We have been given pretty clear directive that we cannot employ students duringn this time. We are given them all a 1-time stipend this pay period, and that's it.
No masks at U of I either…following CDC guidelines on effectiveness and need in other areas so we didn’t want to take any needed supplies
CWRU- we had a plan to run on limited hours throughout our facilities. But things were escalating- so on that last Friday, it was a lot of "maybe see you on Monday". Late Sunday night they decided that the gym was goign to close at noon. Then that day, the gov decided to shut down the gyms to go effect that night.
Washington State University is paying their student employees for remote work. They are taking online training offered by the university and putting on remote programming
At San Jose State we are under the Student Union so our board voted to pay students till May 31. Their hours paid are based on average hours since February 1st.
At Kennesaw State we are approved to allow remote work for students. Students that cannot do remote work or refuse to do remote work will not be paid. However this is a limited opportunity as we do not have the same workload remotely as when the buildings/programs are operating. The only caveat is FWS will be paid as usual though the end of the semester.
CWRU- will pay the students regardless of the ability to work
At Loyola Chicago, we are not allowed to pay our students to work from afar unless it's necessary work.
We have to fill out extra tax forms if they are working from home for necessary work.
We do have sick time for part time employees in the city of Chicago which has allowed them to use sick time pay for a small paycheck
VCU has been using our custodial staff
Our university custodial is unionized. They are cleaning university wide during this closure
UTRGV has been using custodial staff and a few professional staff.... minimal of 9 people in the building at once.
UT-San Antonio created learning opportunities based on the 8 dimensions of wellbeing. We are also using LinkedIn Learning and other online opportunities.
USC Upstate is using Facilities Management Custodial Staff
Kansas State using custodial staff
Using all three (contract, students and housekeeping)
CBU-we will continue to use our custodial team but we will use our sanisport more often (currently it is quarterly). We share it with Athletics and is worth it's weight in gold!
Washington state university was able to utilize student staff during spring break for a deep clean. We also have full-time custodial and mainten staff that have been continuing to clean
Dixie State we are using custodial for building areas.
We have a fulltime custodian and our students that will be responsible for our deep clean
Troy University using custodial staff and new rec center did extensive internal cleaning utilizing student workers.
CWRU- IT gets complicated for cleaning. So for the weight room and cardio room, the managers will do the cleaning. Athletics will have the students clean other areas as more of spot cleaning. Then custodial go through the building
UT San Antonio - Clorox®
Total 360® System
Ordered Geneon system to disinfect all equipment. Have wiped down everything with a disinfectant. Whenever that gets in. In how custodians are scrubbing Mondo floors.
LSU we’ll have custodial staff along with our current practice of using the 360
For those that have Clorox 360, are they allowed to use it when the facility is occupied?
@jimmy-- No, you have to have a cleared room
Stanford had to close on Friday March 13th I got a call at 5PM had to be closed by 6PM…Shelter in place started that Monday…We were only allowed to pay our staff until March 15th …trying to have only full time staff working except a few personal trainers that have special certifications and a few other minimal contingent staff…We have an outside company TQM that comes in and cleans for us for inside…Aquatics does its own cleaning…
our department is responsible for PPE, we just ordered and restocked prior to our closure
An alternative to Clorox 360 (https://vitaloxide.com/)
Has anyone been asked to give up the PPE to donate towards healthcare?
its an electrostatic cleaner
Xavier University has now donated all unopened boxes of gloves to the hospitals, so that is a concern of mine when we come back
We had a large inventory of gloves and masks we keep black gloves for first aid and blue gloves for cleaning so we donate all of the rest of our gloves to the Stanford Hospital we had masks due to all the California fires so those were donated too.
fingers crossed we have staff
Same at UTRGV....
SJSU lifeguards wanted to donate gloves, etc. and we agreed not to because of supply and demand and we wanted to make sure we had a supply when we open again.
We will be online as well at AUM
Right now at OSU we are polling our student staff to see who will be available and willing to work summer and the fall
Georgia tech will open when university system allows. We are still hiring staff for summer in hopes that we will have staff IF we do open. Right now we do not know what will happen with summer
Our admin understands we might need time to hire and get set up before we reopen. We have agreed to work as quickly as possible to get the Rec Center up and running but they are giving us ownership of our reopen date.
Classes are online through summer. No idea when we will open up. Suspect we will open at some point for international students still here and for faculty and staff.
Many of our (UT Tyler) students want to come back to work but we have been put on hiring freeze so we will be short staffed to at least at the beginning
UC aquatics staff polled students to see who would be back under different circumstances, like rec open w/classes, rec open no classes, etc.
Stanford saved gloves and masks for when we do reopen but donated all the extra but that is only because we have two facilities of back stock for the pool alone but we also have all the rec services stock.
Here at WKU, we'll reopen when University Leadership allows us to. We've been contacting all our student employees to find out what their plans for summer and fall might be
We did the same thing at Commerce, laying it out month to month to see what are numbers would look like from an operations stand point
Mount Royal university in Calgary- we are waiting on Province of Alberta to re open. this would be the last week of classes so we already had availability prior to closing we we are creating the schedule and will start it when we can open. programs may be later then the facility
ARC just extended all certs for 90 days...not sure about AHA yet
just LG and CPRO
No it is LGT and CPRO
that's what i meant, sorry everyone!
on the aquatics roundtable tomorrow there will be a red cross rep
The instructor has to submit it after they register for the online course
Stanford has student and non students working for us… we will be limiting hours or only opening up one facility at a time if need be if we don’t have enough staff…A lot of our summer staff that comes home from college has been reaching out wanting to work though so we are lucky as that is helping us stock back up on lifeguards since others were forced to go home.
Link I was shared regarding students signing up for red cross extensions
11 pst or est
2pm est lol
I think WMA for the Outdoor Folks are about to do the same thing for Wilderness First Responder.
We use Connect2 at KU
We use Connect2concepts at Stanford University
Stanford Summer Camps are a go as of right now.
We use SubItUp as well. Technically it's called HelloCert
Just google sheets to track expiration dates, and its one of our student coordinators monthly tasks to check and follow up with students due to expire that month.
Right now WKU is planning Summer Camp as if its a go but we'll see
CWRU- I have a sheet on the u-drive when thing the certs actually expires. But I put all the cert expiration dates in my planner and the month and 2 months out when people are expiring
Summarized resources from Red Cross about COVID-19 social distancing recommendations, provisional courses, and submitting extensions https://www.redcrosslearningcenter.org/s/american-red-cross-covid-19-guidance
UTRGV Excel sheet for documentation as well as taped every location that has been cleaned. so anytime its touched tape is removed then after cleaned will be taped again
Our Custodial staff uses placards that hang from doorknobs to indicate a cleaned space. If the space is then used, the user is supposed to put the placard on the back side of the door. This indicates the area is to be re-cleaned.
damn, Mario! what a house!
At SJSU there was a travel ban CSU wide in early March, so clubs could not travel. Eventually all clubs were not able to practice and all activity stopped.
For us at WKU, when we were told to stop programming, we went into essentially cancelling Sport Clubs for the remainder of the year, and then with our Outdoor Program that was out, the shutdown came at he end of the trip so they just returned as normal.
Campus Recreation was deemed essential at Texas State. We have minimized staffing. Some remote from home and some of us are in the office.
Also, does anyone have a business continuity plan they can share/talk about?
Adding pandemics is the only thing I need to add to the aquatics manual
SJSU REC has discussed this matter in addition to procedures together is there ever was a shelter in place order in our life time.
having more gloves and ppe on hand.
Stanford has protocols for Air Quality, Our Water Curtailment procedures and even keeps a document of the emails that were sent out in the past as templates should any of these situations that are out of our control come up. It is a list of what supplies are needed and should be stocked up on what communication needs to be sent out and to who etc.
Shelter is place was the Santa Clara County order
Our county is calling it shelter in Place
our governor said “Stay at Home”- ohio
Depends on the gov't. Ohio chose to say Stay at home instead of shelter in plae.
County is using shelter in place
I think it depends on the state
I think that's all based upon location and severity of outbreak
VA has been: Stay at home
Two different things to me
Texas is using "Shelter in Place"
VA is stay at hime
OR is Stay at Home
It is based on what the Department of Health for each state signs off on from the governor.
WA is Stay Home, Stay Healthy
The Governor for The State of Indiana has used "stay at home".
Nice article that deatails shelter in place vs stay at home order ^
Ohio gov said he wanted the "stay at home" since it was clear. He was hesitstant to use "shelter in place" since most places using those terms had that term in place in with other diasters (like fire or hurricanes) but since Ohio didn't use shelter in place. The Stay at home was a clearer plan
I don’t believe that authorized under the international standards that both ARC and AHA fall under.
Something in my LG and CPR trainings, I will tell them to think about purchasing a face mask from Amazon since you can get masks cheaply to put onto your keychain
is anyone decreasing liability by removing certification requirement (like going to just FA instead of CPR also?
yes, would like another session
for anyone who has virtual fitness classes, has your legal departments given you language to use?
yes, legal has given us guidance for virtual sessions
@Stefani, some states may require gyms or fitness centers to have CPR certified staff and/or AEDs on hand, so many of us probably can't
Can we do this meeting 1 hour earlier? to accommodate for all time zones?
I hope not because the students were NOT following those protocols. That's when we decided to go to every other macheine, etc....
@Bob thanks. I agree I think we won't change anything!
See you all and stay safe
I know my dept has said that it wants to promote they have the space so social distancing can happen.
