Wellness Center Updates Related to COVID-19
Updated Mask Policy:
Wake County made the decision to implement a mask mandate requiring face coverings in indoor spaces beginning at 7:00 am, August 20th. Face coverings will now be required in all indoor areas of the Rex Wellness Center locations including Wakefield, Raleigh, Cary, Garner and Knightdale. The only exception for wearing masks is while in the whirlpool, lap pool and therapy pool. We also encourage all Wellness Center members to maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet apart, wash their hands often, and if you are not feeling well, do not enter the wellness center and contact your health provider immediately. Thank you for your compliance with this directive from Wake County and for doing your part to keep each other well.
Operating Hours - We are currently open Monday – Thursday, 5:00 am – 8:00 pm, Friday, 5:00 am – 7:00 pm Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 am – 6:00 pm.
Cleaning and Sanitation - REX Wellness Centers has implemented a multi-faceted cleaning approach consistent with CDC’s cleaning and disinfecting protocols. Members are encouraged to use gym wipes to wipe down equipment before and after use. Sanitation stations will be available at convenient locations on the exercise floor for cleaning. REX Wellness has also implemented after-hours deep cleanings along with electrostatic disinfection misting product. Please remember to bring your own water bottle since the water coolers are only available to fill bottles. Pool equipment may be brought in from home provided it is cleaned prior to being used in the pool. For more information regarding what we are doing to keep you safe during this time, please check here.
Social Distancing - To allow for proper distancing, the number of participants in each group exercise class has been altered and exercise equipment has been rearranged. In the event that you need to use the locker room and shower, please be courteous to other members by limiting your time in the area and realize that you may be asked to wait before entering.
Class Registration - We will offer online registration for classes and swim times through the member portal on our website. Instructions for class registration is available here and instructions for swim lane registration is available here. We will also continue to offer a variety of online virtual classes for your convenience.
Your account - UNC REX is extending the freeze policy beyond the previously stated deadline. We have taken extra precautions to make the Wellness Centers safe; however, we understand your hesitancy to return.
Our plan is to allow you to remain on freeze until you feel comfortable returning and we will not activate your membership without your authorization. You may provide that request via email, phone call, or a visit to the center.
