COVID Class Guidance and Policies

Faculty Staff Fitness

Updated: September 15, 2021

In order to re-open our fitness center for in-person classes during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, our community has many requirements to follow.


Effective September 15, 2021, all participants need to fill out the FSF Vaccine Program survey before the first day of fall class

Individuals who are not under the OSU Vaccine Program for students and employees must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19.

See details and link to survey.

Agreeing to participate in-person on campus means agreeing to align behavior with the Governor’s Executive Order to universities, the Oregon Health Authority’s guidance to universities, fitness facilities and pools, and also to OSU’s corresponding face covering and physical distancing polices.

See COVID-19 Safety & Success for related policies, latest updates and Frequently Asked Questions.

 

I have reviewed the guidance and policies and agree to:

  • Follow all safety, hand hygiene and cleaning directions by my instructor and those posted in the facility
  • Wear a face covering, even during exercise (except in the pool).
  • Wait to enter the room until approved by the instructor
  • Give my name to the instructor for attendance every class
  • Maintain physical distancing of a minimum of six (6) feet from all other persons by staying in the designated pre-measured square in my classroom or lane in the pool
  • Fill the room from the back to the front with my pre-measured, designated fitness space
  • Store personal belongings in a locker or in my pre-measured, designated fitness space in the fitness classroom
  • Bring my own mat, yoga blocks, or yoga strap when applicable. No mats will be provided in ANY classes.
  • Leave any used fitness equipment, such as dumbbells, in my workout area ready for disinfection
  • Only use equipment needed for class and not touch other equipment.

 

Unwillingness to follow these standards of practice, behaviors and directions will result in being dismissed from your registered class.

Refunds will follow our Refund Policy within the first two weeks of the term.

If following these standards and directions are difficult for you for any reason, you may take Online Faculty Staff Fitness classes.

 


Vaccine or negative test requirement

 

In fall 2021, Faculty Staff Fitness will continue offering classes with windows open for ventilation, heightened cleaning, a mask requirement and now a vaccine or negative test requirement.

Effective September 15, 2021, individuals who are not under the OSU Vaccine Program for students and employees must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within three days before attending FSF classes.

All participants need to fill out the FSF Vaccine Program survey before the first day of fall class.

If you are not required to comply with OSU’s vaccine program but are fully vaccinated, you will be required to present proof of vaccination at the beginning of the term to our office in 123 Langton Hall.

You will only need to do this once.

Please do not show your instructor.

Proof of being fully vaccinated includes - CDC vaccination record card, or a photocopy, photo or mobile photo of the card.

Cardholders must be at least two weeks past receiving their second dose in a two-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna or other World Health Organization-approved vaccines), or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

A valid driver’s license or another government-issued form of identification, such as a passport, must be presented with the vaccination record.

If you are not required to comply with OSU’s vaccine program AND are not vaccinated or are only partially vaccinated, Faculty Staff Fitness will require submission of a negative COVID-19 test within three days of attending each class to our office in 123 Langton Hall.

Please do not show your instructor.

A negative COVID-19 test result must be in the form of written medical documentation (paper or electronic copy).

The documentation must include test result, type of test, entity issuing the result, and specimen collection date.

A valid driver’s license or another government-issued form of identification, such as a passport, must be presented with the negative test record.

The test must be a SARS-CoV-2 viral test (either nucleic acid amplification test [NAAT], including polymerase chain reaction [PCR] or antigen test) with Emergency Use Authorization or full approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Home tests will not be accepted.

  

Thank you for supporting the OSU community at this difficult time.
