Frequently Asked Questions (COVID-19)

The Office of Recreational Services collaborated with health experts from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) to develop the best procedures and modifications to allow the facility to re-open while also keeping Winthrop students, our members, and the Recreational Services staff safe.


General Procedures

    Face coverings or masks are strongly encouraged when in public spaces and common areas.

    Yes.  The main entrance, directly across from the DiGiorgio Campus Center, will be utilized as entrance and exit.  The external doors in the commuter lounge will be utilized as exit only.

    Yes.  Maximum occupancies for each space can be found on the academic class schedules posted at (or near) the entrance to the specific space.  The Recreational Services student staff will be limiting spaces in accordance with these occupancies (for recreational use).

    Student staff members will thoroughly clean the fitness equipment, as well as any high-touch or high-use spaces.  It is highly recommended that patrons be diligent about wiping down all equipment before and after using it.  Wipes and cleaning solutions are available throughout the building for this purpose.


Front Desk Modifications & Student Staff

    Yes.  Equipment checkout and towel service is now available.  Student staff members will thoroughly clean items after patron use.  Students and members are still welcome to bring in their own equipment and towels if desired.

    No.  Guest passes will not be available until further notice.  This is an intentional effort to minimize the number of outside visitors in the West Center.  We will only be open for students and members this semester.

    Face coverings or masks are strongly encouraged when in public spaces and common areas.  Plexiglass sneeze guards have been installed at each computer to protect both the staff member and the patron.


Locker Rooms & Water Access

    Yes.  Showers, bathrooms, and rented lockers will be available.  

    No.  Saunas (located in the Faculty / Staff locker rooms) will be closed until further notice.

    Access to water drinking fountains is restricted at this time; however, the bottle filling station on the first floor, along with sinks in all bathrooms, may be used to re-fill empty bottles.


Facility Spaces

    Yes.  Some cardio machines have been temporarily moved to the basketball courts, to allow for better spacing and physical distancing of patrons.  

    Yes.  The West Center is an academic facility, hosting a variety of academic classes in many different environments.  Because of the established occupancy limits, some spaces may be unavailable for recreational use while classes are held in those spaces.  This includes (but is not limited to) fitness studio spaces, the climbing wall, the weight room, basketball courts, the pool, and the track.

    Swimmers will need to stay in their chosen lane while in the pool.  When on the deck, all patrons will need to adhere to physical distancing.
