Healthy at the Rec
As we prepare to reopen the Recreation & Wellness Center on July 6, 2020, we understand that you may have many questions. We have worked diligently over the last few weeks to ensure we follow the Kentucky Department of Health “Healthy at Work” and “Fitness Center Guidelines” to create a safe environment to have people back in the Recreation & Wellness Center. 

The list below of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) is intended to address any questions that you may have. If you have a question that is not listed on this webpage, please contact Jason Hilton, Associate Director, via email
