@Brenna - Our shift leadership at open will be responsible for filling in our tracking sheet.
google forms for us
The American Red Cross has many resources re: aquatics on its COVID-19 guidance page: https://www.redcrosslearningcenter.org/s/american-red-cross-covid-19-guidance
Is anyone using dividers between immovable equipment--ie cardio machines close together like these arimis shields?
00:37:34Brad Wilson- LSU
This can be answered in the chat…what is your dept plan for locker rooms? Closed, open as usual, or some modified approach, etc
@Amber - No, we are just closing off machines using motorcycle covers.

@Brad - Locker Rooms will be closed for UT-Austin during Phase 1. Restrooms available, but locker room portions closed down.
00:38:37Drew Loso - Notre Dame
@brad we will have them closed to start out with, and be revisiting the policy as time goes forward
Sarah how many students do you have in lifeguard the class? Are they working in separate groups or all together in the water?
00:39:59Chad Lowe-Ohio State
@Brad - OSU will have lockers open, spaced out, no showers available.
00:40:02Amber Kavehkar-Univ of Pacific
@Brad, its complicated for us since RR and Locker room area is one space. So we are thinking to block off center RR and mark the floor to wait to access locker area one person at at a time and keep lockers avail for rent. No day use lockers.
00:41:33Ross - UT Austin
Ours is similar, Amber. However, we have the ability to close down 2/3 of our lorckerrooms and just keep access to restroom portions.
How are pools that share space with varsity handling their practices? For our members, we are doing 1 person per lane. However, when varsity is practicing, this will not fall under our policy....lots of mixed feelings about different standards
would you be willing to share that lifeguard training plan with us?
anyone using N95 masks? If so who's conducting a fit test?
Here's the Red Cross's interim lifeguarding virtual skills training info from the previously shared website: https://arc-phss.my.salesforce.com/sfc/p/#d0000000bxKz/a/3o000001WiO0/qrBLsuMuaVdz.zunYH5iopZ7VXCELjfTeVcvLV3T9hA
Here's the course info, again from the Red Cross's COVID-19 resource page: https://arc-phss.my.salesforce.com/sfc/p/#d0000000bxKz/a/3o000001WcVt/NYqy0O6r0fJKJEhL1meIYUWPD_CPLIY.z7.Qj7MmjUA
are these trainings taking place on zoom where all need to be present? or are you filming and sending to them to watch on their own time?
00:53:06Ross - UT Austin
Some will be on Zoom, but some will need to be in-person
We are utilized Canvas to have both manuals/information to read, recorded videos to watch with quizzes, then we will have small in-person groups for on-site trainings
Here at UW Superior I will be doing zoom and then Canvas training with videos and quizzes then in person training for facility staff 2 at a time.
@jillian how was the process to create all of that content in Canvas? Is it easy to set up?
01:00:12Ross - UT Austin
That’s a great idea!
What type of open rec policies is anyone adding ?
For our initial opening, we will have our courts and aux gyms closed.
01:01:35Ross - UT Austin
During Phase 1, we won’t be allowing open rec nor renting equipment.
01:01:52Ross - UT Austin
This will be especially tough to enforce at our outdoor facility, where people are used to playing open rec soccer
No open rec throughout the summer. Revisiting when we get to fall.
01:02:09Ross - UT Austin
But we’ll be enforcing drills/passing personal equipment is fine but full-games will be stopped
01:02:21Ross - UT Austin
Those activities will be allowed in future phases
@Sarah, do you have someone who monitors your outdoor court to enforce that rule of one per hoop?
Are group fitness instructors required to wear face coverings when teaching and are they teaching behind a plexiglass barrier for physical distancing?
01:05:58Ross - UT Austin
RecSports is purchasing (2) individual plexiglass barriers for very, very select use. That could be customer service, personal trainers working with an individual in a high-risk category, etc. But those are not/will not be available for all.
At University of Cincinnati, the school might use any of our 6 gym courts to allow students a place to go in between classes so they don't congregate in tighter spaces. We were planning on placing equipment on the courts but now that likely won't happen. Instead, we'll likely spread some equipment throughout the multipurpose rooms and keep group fitness virtual.
01:08:08Amber Kavehkar-Univ of Pacific
online and in person mix starting with more online for group fitness, 25% in person
Have any universities made decisions on student travel?
01:09:14Ross - UT Austin
@Robert - We just got asked to think about the same….which I think we can accommodate. We never planned to move equipment, for reasons like this or if we became an Acute Care Site/Field Hospital.
No decision has been given to us on travel at this time.
As of right now, we are not allowing student travel at UGA
Got to go... Emergency
Sport Club Considerations: William & Mary is looking at the state high school federation, NGB's, and the NCAA. The combination of those guidelines along with our local state guidelines will inform our decisions related to sport club practice and travel.
For those planning to allow club sports to practice still, are you having them sign any form of COVID waiver? (Came in late so apologies if this was asked earlier)
We do not have a COVID waiver but we are thinking of having them put together a practice plan that we both agree on that fit university and NGB guidelines. So just conditioning and/or how they are going to social distance
two weeks pls!
01:18:39Amber Kavehkar-Univ of Pacific
Would love to do another in two weeks especially to hear from open spaces
Two weeks sounds good
01:18:41Ross - UT Austin
Good luck to those re-opening soon! Our NIRSA fam is here to support always!
