Q: If I have trouble breathing with a mask, do I still need to wear it while exercising? 

A: Yes. If you wish to use the Student Recreation Center during the Corona Virus Tier III mitigation phase, the only option is for the mask to be worn at all times. The only exception will be for someone swimming laps in the pool or when someone is taking a drink. Our staff will be strictly enforcing this new mask policy and anyone who does not comply will be asked to leave. Masks pulled down below the mouth or nose are not acceptable.
