In light of Chancellor Carol Christ’s cancellation of in-person classes for the remainder of the semester, Berkeley Rec Sports has released a statement limiting hours of operation at the Recreational Sports Facility, or RSF, suspending operations at specific locations and suspending intramural and club sports until March 30.

“Rec Sports is continuing to closely monitor and assess this dynamic situation, and consequently, the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) and current public health guidelines on our operations. There are no confirmed cases of coronavirus on the Berkeley campus at this time,” said Director of Rec Sports Brigitte Lossing in a press release.

From Monday through Friday, the R.S.F. will be open from 6 a.m.- 8 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday, the R.S.F. will be open from 8 a.m.- 8 p.m.

In addition, the California Memorial Recreational Fitness Center and recreational swim at Spieker Pool will close starting March 16. Hearst Pool will close on March 21 for spring break. The California Memorial Recreational Fitness Center and Hearst Pool are expected to re-open on March 30, while a possible re-opening date for Spieker was not mentioned.

All Cal Sports Clubs are also suspended through spring break, as are intramural sports beginning March 15. Both are expected to return to at least limited operation on March 30.

Rec Sports has also announced ongoing social distancing practices for users of Rec Sports spaces.
