I would love to know what everyone is thinking about face coverings in their spaces (all the time, only for some activities in the space, etc.)
@matthew, personally not a fan but I don't believe it will be my decision. I believe at least the staff will have to wear them.
00:36:32Chad Lowe-Ohio State
We are providing PPE equipment to students if they need to provide a spot (but members will also be required to wear them). Otherwise, if students want to wear them, we have the supplies for them. But they don't have to wear them
Employees are currently required to wear a mask
If face masks are required.what happens when someone wants to drink water while exercising
We have been instructed to have them as "part of the uniform" for student staff, so they are required. They are not required for patrons.
Is anyone who is student fee based only, planning to just open to students FIRST? We allow Faculty/Staff to use, but I am wondering if we are restricting access, what it looks like when F/S are in the facility when students are the ones who pay.
This is still in progress, but staff will most likely be required to wear them at University of Michigan across Student Life. Our Divisional Leadership is taking the lead on procurement. I don't know what will be asked of patrons in the rec center. I can't imagine we would want patrons exercising intensely in masks.
@Devon Wilde, if they are being considered part of a uniform, is your institution purchasing them for staff?
We will be purchasing masks for students. Patrons will not be required to wear masks
At the moment, our institution is not purchasing them, but us as a Rec Sports department are purchasing them for our students. There has been discussion throughout campus of our safety department purchasing them later on... (which would help with budget!)
GSU- we have mass purchased for staff already
UAkron is definitely buying in bulk for across all areas of the university
GSU is thinking about temperature checks for staff and patrons
at UCLA, we will take guidance and lead from what the university as a whole recommends or requires. However, the city of Los Angeles does require them right now, so whenever we get the green light to open if the city still requires them, I assume we be required to have all our staff have them. Currently however the university is providing them to all essential staff who are making visits while the campus is closed
00:44:54adrianna del amo
UMaine is only allowing students and members during phase 1 as well
ASU is similar to you Erin
For those planning on doing temperature checks, have you found any good products you plan to use?
Northern Arizona will only be serving current members during Phase I
What if you are open to the community (non-faculty/staff)? Are you still opening to students and/or Fac/Staff first?
Sorry if this has been discussed, but how are people providing care (ventilations during CPR) in this new normal?
Temperature devices are sold through McKesson medical about $68 per touchless device
is anyone thinking of a virtual traiing?
maybe a video showing how to enter or the pathway?
@kristen, we most likely will be creating videos that we can use beyond this new normal
GSU is looking at having to open the week before real opening to try and phase in sessions for Bag valve mask training and universal program trainings for the fall
@Stefani what school are you?
I would love that too please. :) Labrousm@umich.edu
Devon.Wilde@tamucc.edu - would be so helpful! Thank you!
add me please firstname.lastname@example.org
00:47:45Max, Swarthmore College (he/him)
email@example.com —— Thanks Erin!
00:47:45adrianna del amo
firstname.lastname@example.org -- virtual training info would be great
I would welcome additional resources for training students to specifically enforce the social distancing and if you will allow those who claim to be roommates, etc, to be within 6ft of each other or if you’ll be strictly enforcing it with every individual
could you maybe share with me? Kristen2@umbc.edu
Please send to email@example.com
I would love that also firstname.lastname@example.org
please add me too, email@example.com
I would love that as well!
firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks Erin!
Would love to see that as well Erin, email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org as well please
Erin, i would realy like that too. Wendy.Johnson@usd.edu - Associate Director Wellness Center
email@example.com - please send my way too! Thank you!
00:48:29Chad Lowe-Ohio State
HI Everyone, could you email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org
00:48:36Chad Lowe-Ohio State
for the student training document
I am developing a return to work training with some Covid specific stuff but most of it is a reminder of things that all staff already know. PPE, blood borne pathogens etc...
email@example.com Thank you!
We would be interested in receiving the online staff training module firstname.lastname@example.org thank you!
email@example.com - Staff training document please
00:48:56Julia Neal - UAkron
firstname.lastname@example.org - Thanks so much!
How are your departments managing space capacity with users? What sort of reservation processes/planning are you all doing to stay within max capacity within each area in your facilities?
what about places that are just plum HOT?! Temperature checks can be off. I had to stop by the hospital and had two significantly different temperatures between coming from outside to again inside
Please add me as well. email@example.com
00:50:41Julia Neal - UAkron
00:51:03Julia Neal - UAkron
I thought about that too, we are not hot, but even if you do a pre-workout, your temp is elevated.
https://www.watersafety.com/whats-new for supplies has been great
People could also take Tylenol to lower their temp prior to leaving the house - so our university has directed us not to rely on this
ASU has ordered Hepa filters for all of our pocket masks and BVM for all first aid kits. All of our staff are CPRO and have been for the last 15 years
HEPA is on AHA
on their recommendations
Compressions are still aerosol generating so if you are doing compression only CPR you still want to cover the face with some kind of cloth or mask
If you use an N95, we have been told you need a physician evaluation and fit test. Are others getting the same information?
@megan we are working with our custodial team to get a spray that has a shorter dwell time
also her eis the publication by 20 Doctors on HEPA: https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/pdf/10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.120.047463
Here is a product that I have researched that might be of great help to you clean your facilities. https://goldshieldusa.com/.
At University of Cincinnati, every staff member in our EAP that responds to a code is certified in Red Cross CPR Pro
there is an American Red Cross Mental Health COVID training out there, that we are requiring for all staff. It is free if anyone wants it!
At Colorado State, all staff that respond in our EAP are CPRO as well
At Appalachian State University we train all of our Lifeguards and Facility Supervisors to CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer, All of our Professional Staff are CPR for the Professional Rescuer Trainers
At VCU, our Facility Operations Attendants have CPR for the Lay Responder, however, we transitioned our Facility Managers last year to CPR Pro.
when we transitioned to all staff being CPRO a few years ago, a major selling point was consistency of care across the facility
reservations on the hour.
01:00:03Matthew Gordon Harvard University
Fusion Reservations is the plan
Calculating spaces on the 144 sq ft per person and then taking into account equipment in spaces for capacity numbers. We are looking at either using our Fusion software court reservation system for building capacity registrations for 1 hour 15 minute time slots (no locker room access during phase 1) with 30 minutes in between to get staff reset and cleaning high touch points. Or we will do a first come first serve then one in one out. We have only one main entrance so it is easier for us to control.
01:00:33Max, Swarthmore College (he/him)
@Rebecca - Does this include your building staff, too?
I am one of the Co-Chairs for the NIRSA Work Team for Re-Opening. It would be greatly appreciated if you would send me your institutions opening plans for use by this work group. If your plan is already on the shared Google doc no need to send. Thanks in advance! firstname.lastname@example.org
at uc davis we have talked about repurposing the IM scoreboards, to put in bigger spaces like weight room to visually display the number of people in that area at that time. putting one possibly in the front near the front desk as people in the building.
We are looking at reservations but don't have a system. Found this one that has a free option or relatively cheap paid options. https://www.signupgenius.com/
Connect2 to keep track of the capacity and posting the count so the patron can view
Laura, is the shared google doc of ideas on NIRSA's website?
We are basing capacity on fitness areas only. Our staff would be covered by the hallway and main entry and office space.
UH is looking at using Fusion Group Fitness Check In system as our reservation process for capacity and clearing the facility on the :50
For anyone using connect 2: (if you don't do it already) have you considered using the counts to post the live counts on your website?
01:09:18Chad Lowe-Ohio State
@Colin - Yes, at OSU we plan to use that feature. Working towards making sure the Counts are accurate and adjusting the capacities as well.
01:09:22Max, Swarthmore College (he/him)
A big thing I’ve noticed in this 24 Hour Fitness video is they are requiring patrons to wear a mask.
@Rebecca etat does that realistically look like in many spaces? 10-20 people?
how are people dealing with patrons that say live together that don't need the "6ft rule" and have expectations they will be workout out together due to that? How are you going to handle that?
At UTA we are doing 25% of the number of cardio pieces and using the same number for the weight area.
Is anyone training staff on cleaning to be OSHA compliant? Hazard Communication Training. I know this varies state to state.
Are your student employees operating the electrostatic sprayers?
How frequently are you using the electrostatic sprayers? Daily?
UC Davis had a protexuss sprayer gun before the shut down. we have the backpacks as well, and a few more sprayer guns for the staff to use in their areas. Yes @joe Cassidy, the students are operating.
@molly--they are going through hourly, and the one roamer attendant, they were using it to spray everything
What type of PPE is being used with the electrostatic sprayers?
@julia prior to shut down, they didn't need much ppe
we can spray on everything except surfaces you'd ingest (so don't spray food)
What is the drying time?
UC Riverside has the clorox 360 systems and has for over a year. We use them all day long on all items in the facility.
@ molly drying time is 10 minutes
What product are you using in your sprayers?
thank you thank you
01:15:13Matthew Gordon Harvard University
We use Oxivir which has a dry time of 5 minutes, and they also make Oxivir 1 which dries in 1 minute. We are trying to procure sprayers still.
@megan, there are tablets that we order to use. after it sprays, it smells lowkey like a pool with the chlorine smell. but you fill the canister up with water, and the tablet is like an alka seltzer tablet so once it fizzes it's good
@sarah, no residue for us at davis so far
too early to tell for rusting
We have had no issues with the clorox system leaving residue or any rust.
We also use the clorox system on our black cushions and have no residue or marks from them on those is that gives you some indication of that.
@Nysaa Our building layout allows for some of this. For a phase one re-open we anticipate lower usage so our initial lower capacity numbers should work. Then we will look to loosen up as we learn/operate this way for summer ops.
@Frances do you use it everywhere? locker rooms, fitness equipment, front desk, etc?
Yes! Everywhere! They are fantastic and we have had them for a couple of years! We use them on furniture, equipment, kids toys (we have childcare), you name it.
Is anyone suspending guests that do not follow cleaning protocol (i.e., each guest must clean equipment after use)? We have been asked to do this, but are looking for other options.
Utah already has some community pools open for lap swim only.
01:18:45Joey LaNeve - ASU
city pools and gyms can open in AZ as of this week. We are waiting for University guidance before opening
Idaho is allowing pools to open soon. Some cities are not due to financial reasons.
In Virginia, currently only Outdoor pools are allowed to operate. However, it is only for "fitness" related activities (Lap swim or individual Aqua Aerobics).
we are allowing them to use the public restroom in the facility
In Illinois you can't open pools without a shower and toilet available
01:19:41Justin Kern- ASU
ASU is adding outdoor showers to all of our pools
In Ohio the announcement was made, but the guidelines the governor said they would have to follow have not been published yet.
^For pools and gyms, that is
As of tomorrow Utah can have rec swim and swim lessons. Governor gave two day notice that we are moving to low risk phase.
We have talked a lot about virtual training and spacing like Erin said.
American Red Cross also just released virtual skills for Lifeguarding and CPRO but I haven't reviewed it yet
If your department has a large event during orientation or start of the school year to promote your facilities and programs (i.e., RecFest), with social distancing, what alternatives are you considering to promote campus rec?
01:22:02Chad Lowe-Ohio State
Meagan do you have that link handy?
01:22:40adrianna del amo
Can be used if you do not have a life size mannequin for in water rescue skills
We've been doing virtual in-service since we closed. I have seen a couple facilities currently doing training with their lg's with snorkel mask on (don't necessarily recommend) and bring a person from home to help (another tough one).
CDC also has specific language excusing 6 feet rule for "gatherings" during emergencies
@Joe this is small, but during virtual orientation, OLs are asking students to open up social media and follow us on one of our platforms.
We are also using Strava (free app) to create an activity club
"Anyone rescuing a distressed swimmer, providing first aid, or performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, with or without an automated external defibrillator."
01:24:27Chad Lowe-Ohio State
@Joe - all of OSU's orientation is going virtually this year. We are creating a landing web page for all of our materials and also will have a weekly Q & A zoom call for incoming 1st year's.
Anyone requiring Participants, particularly those doing cardio, to wear a face mask?
I am buy them out of my pocket for my staff. Claflin University
There is a lot of research being done on the cardiac issues happening from those wearing masks while working out so those going that direction I recommend lookign into it.
We are recommending that everyone that come to workout have a mask.
I don't believe we are requiring participants to wear masks but encouraging it. Our employees are required to wear them though
We are planning to require patrons wear masks while exercising. I am concerned about drinking water.
01:29:41Max, Swarthmore College (he/him)
i feel like we need another as more are opening...to see what works and doesn't!
wearing a mask for cardio is like pool hypoxic training
two weeks - yes
1 week please
01:29:50Rob Patchett (he/him/his)
2 weeks! YES!
I think this needs to keep happening as we move through our "phases" of reopening together!
the more times we can meet the better!
01:29:56adrianna del amo
1 week plz
Yes please! So much info!! I'm fine with any week time!
Yes one week
yeah 1 or 2 is great thank you all
valuable to keep meeting
week and a half :)
