Dr. Greenway’s goal throughout the COVID-19 pandemic is the welfare and safety of the SWBTS campus community. As we are preparing to re-open the doors to the RAC, it is necessary to reiterate the need to continue to observe and comply with the following health-authority-recommended practices to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Thus, it is of the utmost importance that appropriate precautions and procedures are in place to ensure the safety of the SWBTS community as the RAC reopens.

The mitigation process is in place to ensure the RAC does not become a hotspot for COVID-19 will be in three phases. In Phase I, only three RAC spaces will available for use; the Weight Room, Aerobics Room, and Walking Track. Moving to Phase 2 will be determined by the SWBTS Task Force based on the RAC's ability to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus effectively.

Please be advised, the RAC staff will be trained to require strict adherence to the requirements of the COVID-19 mitigation process in each phase of the opening process. Therefore, we ask for your unwavering cooperation and patience as we work to make the RAC safe and available to the SWBTS Community. Below are some crucial details regarding the Phase I re-opening that is vital for you to understand before Monday's re-opening. Thanks in advance for your patience and cooperation.

Crucial things to know for Phase I 

The maximum number of users in the Phase I designated spaces per hour is ten (10). This means that if all spaces are maxed out each hour there will be  a maximum of twenty six (26) users in the RAC each one- hour time slot. 

ALL  RAC users MUST call and ahead and reserve one of the 10-spaces available prior to coming to the RAC.  If all the spaces are taken for a particular hour, the caller will have to accept a time slot in the next available hour. 

Only ONE TIME SLOT PER DAY can be reserved. 

In the effort of fairness, ALL RAC users will have a MAXIMUM of one hour per day, and must exit the RAC at the end of their one hour workout time. No other users will be allowed in the RAC until the previous users have left the building.

To avoid overcrowding and confusion, every RAC user must remain in their chosen/reserved workout space. In other words, a person who signs up to use the aerobics room for a one-hour time slot MUST remain in the aerobics room.

All RAC user MUST wear a face mask and gloves while exercising in the RAC. Mask and gloves will be provided if RAC users arrive without them.

IMPORTANT: No Children under the age of 14 are allowed in the RAC in the Phase I re-opening.
