Indoor recreational facilities at WSU Pullman will temporarily close beginning Nov. 20.

The closures come following clarification of recent guidelines from Washington Gov. Jay Inslee in response to the recent rapid spread of COVID‑19. The latest restrictions are expected to last through Dec. 14.

The Student Recreation Center, Stephenson Fitness Center, and Hollingbery Fieldhouse will be closed, as well as fitness areas within the Chinook Student Center.

University Recreation will continue to provide online programming as well as virtual fitness classes during the closures, with more opportunities being added next week. Additional information on how University Recreation is responding to the state guidance can be found online.

“While this news is disappointing, we understand the need to minimize the spread of COVID‑19,” Jeff Elbracht and Joanne Greene, directors of University Recreation and the Chinook Student Center, wrote in a message to students, faculty and staff. “Please continue to do your part. What you choose to do on and off campus impacts us all. We look forward to returning to in‑person services and will reopen as soon as we are able.”
