Inclement Weather Plan

The Fitness Center has been designated an essential facility of the university.  In keeping with this designation, the inclement weather plan of the Fitness Center at the University of Mary Washington has been designed to allow guests the opportunity to use the facility while ensuring their safety while coming to and leaving the facility.

This plan is intended to guarantee maximum facility use during times of weather related closures or delays.  The daily hours of operation will be determined with due consideration of any institutional delays and/or closures and following employee contact to guarantee that they have the ability to open the facility without undue personal risk.  Every attempt will be made to stay as close to the regular scheduled hours as possible.  Announcements of changes to the facility hours will be posted on the voice mail of the Fitness Center phone, 654-1REC (1732) and the family of Campus Recreation web sites.  The Director of Campus Recreation and the Fitness Center Director reserve the right to close the facility if weather conditions worsen.  If it becomes necessary to close the Fitness Center, announcements will be made over the facility public address system and the Fitness Center voice mail message will be updated to reflect any change to previous messages.

Guests are encouraged to call ahead to determine the operational status of the Fitness Center when there appears to be reason for weather related institutional delays and/or closures.
