In accordance with NCDHHS recommendations, and Executive Order No. 215, face masks are no longer required for those who have received their COVID-19 vaccine. We strongly recommend that you do continue to wear a face mask over your nose and mouth if you have not received your COVID-19 vaccine. Children under 12 years old should continue to wear face coverings inside the building, as those children are not yet eligible to receive a Covid-19 vaccine.
As a reminder, all participants in the Cardiac Rehabilitation program as well as Physical Therapy Services are required to wear a mask while participating in the programs mentioned.
While we are excited about this update, our primary focus and commitment at the UNC Wellness Centers have been and will be to ensure the safety of our community, members and staff. The steps we have taken to maintain a safe environment will continue at all of our centers:
- Robust cleanings
- Reservation times for areas such as lap lanes, climbing wall, and other services
- Mask requirements and wellness check screenings for all staff
- Exercise equipment spaced 6’ apart
- Group exercise class participants spaced 6’ apart
- Virtual class offerings
We strongly encourage all of our members and the community to get vaccinated and Find Your Spot, Take Your Shot. For guidance on vaccinations, please refer to NC’s Interim Guidance for Individuals Who Have Been Vaccinated Against COVID-19.
