What are the concerns regarding taking temperature which hasn't been proven to be overall effective - then having student staff having to enforce the readings with members who feel they are fine and healthy?
13:14:42From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
@Marc: That you can still be asymptomatic and not have a fever.
13:16:09From Marc Iturriaga
@Anthony - true. And if someone is feeling sick and still showed up, would they actually answer the questions honestly? Not sure that it will actually mitigate any spread but looks like a litigation mitigation.
13:16:53From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
@Marc: Yes. In the attachment, there are 5 Qs to answer before entering.
13:16:56From Mila Padgett
@Marc - I do have some concerns which is why we are having professional staff onsite for the first few weeks. That's in our Governor's guidelines so that is where I am hoping some things may change with new information as we move forward.
13:16:57From Matt Grimm
Has anyone put in an order for PPE for fitness center staff, and if so, what did it include, what's the turnaround time, etc?
13:17:46From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
@Matt: The university finally put together a committee through Purchasing to bulk order for the university as a whole.
13:18:03From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
What Andrew just said.
13:18:07From Mila Padgett
We also have a COVID19 screening form from our HR department that must be completed EVERY DAY you are on campus. This includes our student employees. They will do that electronic from at the same time they clock in for work.
13:18:21From Kathryn - Loyola Chicago
Our university is purchasing all but we had to put in a special request for HEPA filters to attach to our BVMs, etc
13:18:30From Shaun Rutherford
Our facilities department is also installing shields at high traffic desks and things of that nature in the lobby, fitness center etc.
13:18:30From Anna Champion
PPE - through University; not individual departments
13:18:40From Michael Thomas
Are masks recommended or mandatory while working out? Has anyone discussed partner lifts, such as "spotting" for patrons?
13:18:42From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
@Mila: We are also having them document the temperature in our group text.
13:19:56From Mila Padgett
We are having every other machine not in use due to social distancing but not plexi glass. We created a social distancing sign to be placed on equipment. The plexi glass is only at our Wellness Center desk.
13:20:11From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
I have seen/heard rope, gym floor tape, signs, trashbags...
13:20:37From Jami Brossette
13:20:40From Mila Padgett
13:20:45From Jami Brossette
only when they are not actively working out
13:20:48From Shaun Rutherford
No our public health coordinator said that its not recommended
13:20:51From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
Yes, except when exercising.
13:20:53From Kathryn - Loyola Chicago
Nope! We don't need people passing out
13:21:02From Karen Howell
No when actively exercising.
13:21:14From Virginia Mohr
we plan to have patrons wear masks if we open in the fall.
13:21:33From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
Nope and signs to say "no spotting."
13:21:49From Karen Howell
We are saying no spotting and removing all those benches
13:21:51From Virginia Mohr
no spotters. removing weights that require this
13:21:53From Mila Padgett
This would have to be fact checked.. but I have heard there is an OSHA policy that you can not make a mask mandatory without a respiratory function test. Definitely needs to be fact checked.
13:22:12From Jami Brossette
Same, We will most likely not have spotting, recommending no maxing out or super heavy weights if someone needs a spot
13:22:16From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
13:22:24From Shaun Rutherford
Talked about moving free weights or other exercises to another location in the building
13:22:50From Anna Champion
Masks while exercising...Most likely not - maybe along the lines of entering and exiting and walking through facility; not while exercising. No spotting in phase 1...yes, free weights, limit benches
13:23:23From Jeremy F- CNU
we are going to have difficulty moving machines/weights since we don't really have anywhere to move them all. I think we will need to close every other machine. Does anyone else have spacing issues with storing the machines?
13:23:44From Jami Brossette
13:23:52From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
@Jeremy: Pallets and pallet jack.
13:23:58From Matt Grimm
NO STORAGE SPACE!!!!!
13:23:58From Max, Swarthmore College
Laminate paper, add velcro, put it in an obnoxious spot
13:24:02From Lindsey Logue
We are moving equipment to 1 basketball court.
13:24:20From Karen Howell
We are moving ours to a racquetball court
13:24:27From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
@Michael: Do not forget about heavy machines on wood courts.
13:24:33From Shaun Rutherford
Same we are using one of our basketball courts at Adelphi as well but not ideal
13:24:34From Jami Brossette
our school only has one basketball court that athletics moves, so that is a no for us, may look at other options
13:24:46From Jami Brossette
*uses, not moves
13:24:56From Michael Thomas
Our head basketball coaches were not happy
13:25:10From Lashica Thomas
What are people doing that have hand readers for biometric access
13:25:28From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
Turning off and putting down.
13:26:03From Jeremy F- CNU
we have the thumb readers but going to card readers for at least the time being
13:26:30From Mila Padgett
Our capacity is 32 in our fitness area - we are giving everyone their own disinfectant bottle and towel upon entry with directions on the bottle. Disinfect the bottle when it is returned.
13:27:43From Lindsey Logue
Thoughts on putting vinyl floor covering & rubber flooring down on wooden gym floors for selectorized equipment?
13:27:45From Jami Brossette
is your deep clean in the middle of the day, or at the end of the day? or both? sorry, I didn't hear if you said that
13:27:53From Pat Kutcher
does anyone use hand readers to enter the locker rooms?
13:28:46From Matt Grimm
Is anyone using the electrostatic disinfecting sprayers?
13:29:00From Matt Grimm
to clean after each hour or whatever blocks you are running?
13:29:08From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
@Jami: We talked about the padding, but decided no. We also have a concrete concourse to put them.
13:29:09From Jami Brossette
Good stuff. Thank you for the insight!
13:29:12From Shaun Rutherford
We are looking into that Matt
13:29:28From Max, Swarthmore College
I want them… But they’re back ordered for weeks!
13:29:28From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
Yes. Good luck at buying them.
13:29:49From Max, Swarthmore College
I know that UT-Austin placed an order in March and still haven’t received them.
13:30:15From Robert Simels
We were told at least 10 weeks when we quoted out
13:30:25From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
The garden/plant pump sprayers are a good backup.
13:30:31From Robert Simels
13:32:09From Shaun Rutherford
Yes we are doing that at Adelphi, we have some extra flooring from an old project so we are protecting the wood floor with that rubber flooring
13:32:35From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
Lucked out and have a concrete concourse around the courts...backup plan.
13:33:26From Jeremy F- CNU
for sport clubs has anyone been thinking about what to charge for dues? Clubs need to make budgets but is it ethical to charge full dues if they cant participate in the fall
13:35:17From Max, Swarthmore College
Is anyone at an institution where a student budget committee completely funds club sports and dues are not an expectation?
13:36:31From Michael Thomas
13:37:56From Jeremy F- CNU
we get roughly $60k a year from the university to distribute to our 30 sport clubs but our clubs charge anywhere from $30-2000 for dues
13:38:14From Matt Grimm
Do any other schools model what club teams do based on the NCAA teams?
13:38:18From Matt Grimm
we are a d3 school
13:38:30From Max, Swarthmore College
13:40:47From Jeremy F- CNU
we are D3 also at CNU. IMs and Sport Clubs fall under athletics. I had a call with our athletic director last week. We for the most part will be following NCAA guidelines for Rec
13:41:58From Robert Simels
Besides mirroring NCAA, do other schools have to follow what restrictions will be put on the RSOs at their institutions
13:42:45From Kathryn - Loyola Chicago
Our RSOs have been told there will be no events this fall in person, so that spaces are open for more socially distanced classes
13:42:55From Max, Swarthmore College
Great read from the NCAA… http://www.ncaa.org/sport-science-institute/resocialization-collegiate-sport-action-plan-considerations
13:44:11From Marc Iturriaga
The answer is 42

13:44:49From Marc Iturriaga
What is the one thing that is keeping people up awake at night?
13:45:12From Max, Swarthmore College
Knowing that there is an absolute unknown
13:45:37From Anthony U of Central Arkansas
13:46:01From Max, Swarthmore College
Thanks for the great conversation! I think it is very important for small programs to continue to meet to discuss these issues.
13:46:02From Kathryn - Loyola Chicago
Marc's impression of a gorilla is excellent
13:46:30From Marc Iturriaga
If we can focus on that one thing, especially in this times of unknown, can that help alleviate fears and stress? probably not...
