We’ve outlined some basic guidelines we ask you to follow as you pursue the exercise, recreation and wellness opportunities that are important to your health and well-being. By taking these precautions, together, we can ensure a safe experience for all of our members.

 Health Check

We expect that all members of the Maroon community will take responsibility for their own health and safety and act in a manner that demonstrates respect and consideration for those around them, consistent with the Maroon health pledge.

 Face Coverings
