Changes to the Member Experience

UPDATE: January 4, 2021

MizzouRec’s top priority is to provide a safe and healthy environment for the Mizzou community. Adjustments to facilities, programs and services are guided by the science and data behind the pandemic in accordance with CDC and MU Health expertsThis includes extensive cleaning protocols, enhanced operating procedures, and social distancing practicesBelow is an outline of our changes and how it may impact your MizzouRec experience. 

MizzouRec will reduce facility capacity to 25%. Check our capacity counter before coming to the facility for our current capacity.

Members will need to show their “Good to Go!” screen in the #CampusClear app to door screeners to indicate they are cleared for campus. Once you have been cleared, you will be able to enter the facility.

If you are unable to access or use the app, you can complete a manual screening. The screening will include having your temperature taken and verbally confirming you do not have any symptoms associated with COVID-19.
