Chace Athletic Center COVID Protocols & Procedures

Chace Athletic Center COVID Protocols & Procedures

The Bryant University Athletic and Recreation Department wants to provide an update to policies and procedures for the upcoming fall semester. All areas will be following proper guidelines and sanitization procedures from the RI Department of Health, Bryant University, and CDC recommendations.

The Hours of Operations for the Chace Wellness Center, Fitness Center, Pool, and MAC Courts can be found here.


Chace Wellness Center:
Every Bryant community member entering the Chace Wellness Center will be required to wear a mask and check in at the lobby control desk. Each person will need to show their Bryant health checker app, as well as, using their Bryant ID to "sign in" upon entering the building with the front desk staff. We are no longer allowing "cut-through" from the AIC to the Unistructure. We suggest all on foot/walking traffic to use the outdoor pathway between the Bello Center and Chace to avoid swiping in.

Traffic flow:  The first floor of the building has a one-way traffic flow. All patrons will check-in, walk to the Athletic training/MAC hallway doors.
