#CSurec updates

Facility Closures & Modifications:

Update from 8/8/21:
Dear CSU Rec Center Members, Faculty, Staff, and Friends:
With the rising number of COVID infections, Cleveland State University has just announced a new mask mandate. After consulting with public health officials and our campus community on recent trends, CSU believes additional safety protocols are necessary to limit the spread of COVID-19 and stay on a path to have a collectively successful fall semester.

Effective Monday, August 9, properly worn masks will be required at all times inside CSU facilities – including the Rec Center – for all members, students, faculty, staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status (exceptions being water activities and classes in the pool, as well as medical and religious reasons). Additionally, unvaccinated individuals are also expected to wear masks outdoors when physical distancing is not possible.
Given current infection levels in our community, these new masking requirements are consistent with CDC guidelines and are now recommended by Cuyahoga County public health officials. For more information on CSU's campus safety protocols, click here.

We appreciate your cooperation in working together to keep our members, staff, and yourself healthy and safe. 

Thank you!
