Embry-Riddle Reopens Eagle Fitness Centers This Week

Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach and Prescott campuses will reopen its Eagle Fitness Centers this week, under strict health precautions and, in alignment with Embry-Riddle’s Path Forward plan, capacity limitations which will allow staff to monitor the new safety protocols and adjust accordingly. 

Protection When Using the Fitness Center

  • All students, faculty and staff must have a verified wellness check before entering the fitness facility. 
  • Everyone must wear a face covering at all times. 
  • Physical distancing (six feet of separation) remains mandatory. 
  • Everyone will receive a bottle of cleaning fluid and a cloth to clean equipment before and after use.
  • Multiple hand-sanitizing stations will be available. 
  • Everyone must wash or sanitize their hands upon entering and leaving the facility. 
  • All users will be encouraged to use only one piece of equipment at a time (i.e., no circuits or “super setting”). 
  • Use and capacity limitations will be enforced on restrooms and lockers. Showers will not be available during this first phase of reopening. 
  • Those who are more at-risk for Covid-19, as identified by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention — including those who are over the age of 65 or those who have chronic medical conditions — should not use the facility. 

Cleaning Protocols

  • High-touch surfaces, equipment and common areas will be regularly disinfected using disinfectant spray. At times, this may limit equipment access. 
  • Floors will be mopped and disinfected in all of the exercise spaces. 

Equipment Checkout

  • Hard-to-clean items such as resistance bands and mats will be temporarily unavailable. 

We look forward to seeing you at the Eagle Fitness Center. We ask that everyone be smart and do their part to prevent the spread of illness.
