Wellness Center Updates Related to COVID-19
Updated Mask Requirement:
At this time, a decision has been made by Rex Leadership and the Rex’s Infection Prevention team for Rex Wellness Centers to continue the current requirement of wearing a mask while at the REX Wellness Centers, the exception being while in the pools. This decision was made due to current number COVID-19 related cases in the Raleigh and surrounding areas served by Rex Wellness Centers. The COVID-19 related data and metrics will continue to be reviewed by Rex Leadership and Rex’s Infection Prevention team to determine when a change can be made to the current mask requirements. If you are unable to wear a face mask and would like to freeze your membership, please contact your home center.
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.
Screening and Masks – Co-workers and members will be required to wear masks at all times except while swimming. Please consult with one of our instructors if you have any questions.
COVID Screening - We would like to remind members that our online COVIDaware screening is available. This online screening allows you to complete the screening questions on your smartphone or desktop and will speed up your check-in process. The online screening is not mandatory and we will continue to offer in-person screenings for members and co-workers prior to each visit. If completed on your desktop, print a copy of the completed certificate and bring it in the day you plan to enter the Wellness Center. If you complete the Wellness Check on your smartphone, you may show your completed certificate from your phone for the day you are entering the wellness center.

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. Locker rooms will be available with limited capacity. 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.
