What COVID-19 websites are you using to determine protocols for club sports?
Mask required all the time??
especially since the government has removed COVID-19 information from cdc to the White House.
@Shadeed - NCAA site - http://www.ncaa.org/sport-science-institute/resocialization-collegiate-sport-developing-standards-practice-and-competition

@Doug - We are requiring masks on at all times with the exception of swimming at the University of Texas at Austin
@Chad, thank you
in addition to our State Guidelines will be how we form protocols in addition to any university wide standards.
@Doug - Xavier University will be requiring masks at all times as well, except swimming
Doug, at University of Cincinnati, our health services director has said that the school's requirement for wearing a mask at all times while on campus extends to while they are using the rec center.
@Doug will require everyone at all times
Doug - right now masks required for all activity except swimming. We will be guided by what the state/county guidelines are. Currently masks are required anytime you are outside your home in Los Angeles.
Coverings required upon entry, and when moving around building its needed. But if exercising coverings not necessary.
For universities that are going remote after Thanksgiving Break, are your rec centers staying open?
Xavier is allowing practices only for club sports
@Jillian great question!
00:40:10Ross Rod - UT Austin
@Jillian - We will be reducing our facilities open, and the hours those facilities are open, during the period after Thanksgiving until mid-January.
Hi Jillian, At Loyola we are shutting down the building starting Nov 22. Should also say that the University has decided go mostly online with classes...
I would echo what Tracie said. - Eastern Washington University
VCU and WVU are not permitted by their universities to travel or host events this semester
Is anyone supporting academics in an effort to stay "relevant" (sorry best word I could come up with)
by that I mean offering up facility space
@Stefani - the covid task force has been looking at turning our basketball courts and multi-sport courts for study spaces
Loyola Clubs Sports is only permitting conditioning activities for club Sports-no travel of games
00:45:27Brenna Lacey - MoBapUniv
Somewhat on that note, anyone determined who/how the cleaning & equipment disinfecting will take place with academic activity classes (if you share space)?
Our courts are going to be used for study space for people between classes. We just haven't been told if it will be all six courts or fewer.
Right now, we're being told that other areas are discussing how they would clean and maintain those spaces, so it does not currently appear that it will be our responsibility.
Is anyone doing temperature checks for either general use patrons or if an event is occurring in your facility?
Yes to staff and participants coming in. The only group we are not doing is tours coming in. We are having them just come into the lobby and then leave (no walking through the facility). That way they also don't impact capacity.
Yes we are - Thermal Imaging - Silco Company provided. Works well.
00:53:30Ross Rod - UT Austin
Coming from the person who just said: “Its California…they’ll get sued."
i have staff who have gone on the roof for a few minutes and we temp check to see them hit 101! (pre temp was 98). it only takes a few minutes and a while to come down! just seems unreliable
00:58:01Brenna Lacey - MoBapUniv
@staci I would follow your campus protocol for a positive screening because we don't give any instruction, they are cleared by the designated person who receives a Maxient form submitted by any location that has a positive screening
The August Fusion upgrade will include new reservation features.
driving in my car with AC Friday to a second appointment my temp dripped to 97 from 98...
Stanford is using Fusion for the pool and will use it for fitness center
We allow reservations for pool lanes and that is managed through EMS
has anyone planning to/or is closing mid day to disinfect? How long does it take you to spray it all down?
01:02:49Ross Rod - UT Austin
Here’s a sample of our backup system using a free service: Picktime
01:02:50Ross Rod - UT Austin
@stefani, right now we are planning to break for 2 hours mid day to deep clean, but we are running through are cleaning list every 30 min as well.
With reservations... what is everyone doing for no shows? Are there going to be any consequences for people who just don't show for a reservation?
Xavier will have students cleaning all day every day, but we will also be closing daily from 1:30-3P to allow for a full facility cleaning before the "high peak" times.
blocked off showers and locked all the lockers in the locker room. Only stalls and sinks available. We do have cubby lockers available downstairs with signage to physically distance
01:07:31Ross Rod - UT Austin
Anyone with communal showers…how are you planning to operate your locker rooms?
do people have a capacity limit for locker rooms?
locker rooms open, saunas closed and changed all faucets and fixtures to automated. Also segmented our day use locker so that there is 6ft between each
01:08:05Brenna Lacey - MoBapUniv
Showers unavailable, restrooms open, lockers blocked off except every 6 feet. No locker rentals or overnight use because of nightly electrostatic spraying
@marcos no...our staff just walks through to check resources/supplies.
01:08:19Ben Burnham - Boise State
Locker rooms open. Saunas closed. Two people per "bay"
At University of Cincinnati, we'll have toilets, sinks and changing spaces available, but no showers or lockers.
Yes, sorry, locker rooms open, and showers closed, but that changed to having showers open as well.
01:09:16Ross Rod - UT Austin
Also, anyone using Clorox 360 electrostatic sprayers…have y’all been informed that Clorox is limiting solution sales/delivery to just hospitals?
Stanchions and communication signage...academic classes will have certain accesses that patrons do not. No lockers/showers in phase I. So restroom/changing areas and sinks only. This could change. Cleaning will be combined with staff and janitorial team.
how are people handling roommates or significant others who want to workout together when everyone else is being asked to physically distance?
floor tape in locker room to wait for one person by locker area at a time, closing middle stall, (the air travels) and we are not open in fall so plan for spring
01:09:51Ross Rod - UT Austin
@Stefani - We aren’t allowing it at UT-austin because we can’t verify it.
At the University of Colorado Boulder we are closing off showers and putting zip ties on all of our lockers so that they cannot be used. Locker Rooms will just be open for restrooms - this may change if our pool is able to open.
@Jillian, are you going to have staff cleaning the individual showers after every use? That's required in Ohio for individual showers, which is why we decided not to have any available.
I've also heard concern about people going in and out of the stalls not maintaining 6 ft of distance
Ross...we have had our 360 for years and have transitioned to a Karcher product due to the lack of supply. Also we have switched solutions to Ecolabs A456 because it’s suitable replacement
01:11:24Ross Rod - UT Austin
Thanks, @Brad. Ours are new, but we figured out a workaround using Chlorinated tablets that we’ll use in other sprayers.
01:11:53Brenna Lacey - MoBapUniv
Re: opening - observation and flexibility are key! We have already changed several planned procedures because of the inevitable engrained behavior.
what's the dwell time on your disinfectant and how are you handling people wiping down?
@Bob - we are requiring the individual to clean; however, they will be getting cleaned by staff every 30 minutes as well. I'll have to look into the guidelines again just to make sure that is ok.
What are some basketball court rules....1 on1 ok? How far are we going?
01:13:24Ross Rod - UT Austin
When we hit that snag with gloves, I looked into the automotive industry and was able to find a back-up supplier with Nitrile gloves based out of GA I think
@Doug one person per ball/two people per net. Bring your own equipment
we are using 1024 (30s dwell time). it's POWERFUL! and then use a 10m dwell time product during midday and at closing
01:18:49Ben Burnham - Boise State
PreventX: preventative, BNC-15 from Spartan for disinfectant. Will use Virex II 256 for e-sprayer.
How are you handling dumbells/barbells/weight plates....tough to clean.
for those who have opened, how have you handled people who are used to having a spotter?
01:19:42Brenna Lacey - MoBapUniv
@Stefani- we are using 2 person spotter technique and all three persons must have on masks
@Doug we have signage that says keep weight plates with designated machines. we spray them midday and at the end of day. we ask them to wipe down before and after (we will see how that goes!)
@Brenna even though it violates 6ft rule? I am trying to prepare for pushback
OSU - If a weight room user needs a spotter within six feet during a lift, both the user and spotter will be required to wear a face mask.
Outdoor one per court
no basketball we’ve lifted all our goals up for now
I think HORSE is going to become an NCAA sport...
@Doug, our courts will be closed
our courts are used for pickle ball and badminton only
shoot around only. balls checked out at front desk. 1-2 players per half court is the last I heard for our plan.
No equip check-out, no pick-up sports like basketball at least in phase 1 and possibly 2
I'm not sure about that.
We have moved all of our non-powered cardio equipment to our courts, and we will not be allowing any informal rec to happen at this time.
Xavier is also not doing equipment check out and we've removed the mats from the floors as well
01:25:50Ross Rod - UT Austin
And is there a difference between students and non-student participants and their attitudes towards the changes?
01:28:00Ross Rod - UT Austin
We do not have e-gaming locations at UT-austin
we have pool tables and table tennis available
once a month
once a month
01:31:26Ben Burnham - Boise State
1 per month
Once a month
01:31:41Ross Rod - UT Austin
Great conversation today, y’all! Good luck as we all start to re-open!
