Since communicating the URecFit and Wellness plan for the phased return to campus beginning June 1, a few questions and concerns have been asked regarding hours of operation, facility guidelines and available areas.  The reopening plan was approved by UMB’s Crisis Management Advisory Group (CMAG). CMAG’s approval came with the requirement to be in “lockstep” with UMB’s health and safety guidelines.  UMB health and safety leaders were consulted throughout our planning for reopening.  The processes and guidelines align with their guidance. We have a plan for expanding operations based on multiple factors, which includes the hiring of additional staff, over the upcoming weeks and months. On May 7, we received approval to hire part-time staff.  As we continue to hire, train, and certify staff, the hours and service offerings will be expanded.  We will be meeting with UMB health and safety leaders every two weeks to assess the current conditions and to consider adjustments to the phased return plan.  Please know we are working hard to get the facility back to as close to pre-COVID operations as quickly as we can.

URecFit and Wellness reopened on Tuesday, June 1. During this first phase, we are only open for current UMB students and UMB graduates from December 2019 through May 2021. Graduates must submit a form if they wish to activate their free alumni membership. Exercise areas will be open but the pool will be closed.

If COVID-19 metrics continue to improve and capacity allows, we anticipate reopening to other eligible members July 1. We look forward to welcoming you back. Over the past several months, our team has established a comprehensive reopening strategy following the guidelines set forth in the UMB Recovery Framework to ensure a safe return to campus. This plan builds upon URecFit and Wellness' high standards of health, safety, and cleanliness and takes them to the highest level. We encourage members and students to read through the following guidelines to uphold this high standard.
