Hey Matthew :)
Brian Mills
38:55
Expanded cleaning on top of normal cleaning, taking over more responsinility from university custodial staff which are understaffed. Hand sanitizer everywhere. Staff 100% wearing gloves and minimizing all contact with patrons.
Jillian Harper

Limiting hours, only professional staff covering the building, no specialized programs offered
Max Miller
39:34

Here is a protocol from Texas State University: Additional safety precautions have been put into place to combat the spread of COVID-19:• Higher quantities of hospital-grade disinfectant spray for workout areas.• Hand scanners are disabled until further notice.• Increased frequency of staff cleaning schedules.• High traffic doorways will be propped open to reduce touch surfaces• Help us help you by following good hygiene practices.
Wendy Motch-Ellis
41:13
Yes - bill - rotation important of equipment! We are already doing that as well
Angie Nagle
41:17
Saint's Joe's has gone remote for classes and staff, but our recreation center and programs are suspended until further notice per the Govenor.
Max Miller
41:25
More from Texas State Campus Recreation: Only the following spaces will be available at the Student Recreation Center:• Indoor Track•Every third cardio machine will be available to allow for social distancing• Weight machines (Free weights not available).• Natatorium (Pool)
Rusty Vineyard
41:29
We have shutdown our climbing wall, fitness studios, and multipurpose courts. We have limited our cleaning footprint, and have placed signs on certain cardio equipment for social distancing.
Jodie Frey
41:45
We are closed for sprng break and send most students home. We are expected to open next week for 275 students who are on campus for the next 2 weeks with limited hours and creating social distancing along with limited equipment distribution
Janice DeMonsi
42:31
I am thinking we will be closing soon - lots of California schools RECCTRs are closed I have a mtg now at 10:30 a.m. and I am guessing we will close
Wendy Motch-Ellis
42:51
I wanted to reiterate the importance of looking at your safety data sheets of your chemicals - ammonia and bleach don’t mix and is dangerous - please read your SDS sheets, and that you are fully aware of the amount of time a sanitizer needs to stay on wet to be effective and the difference between cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing
Wendy Motch-Ellis
43:32
We have limited open rec basketball for that reason Lynn
Max Miller
43:58
Swarthmore College: Indoor Pool, Indoor Tennis Center, Fitness Center, and Field House are all closed until further notice.
Vilayat Del Rossi
44:23
We have discontinued pick up sports in basketball courts....just a good game of HORSE and washing the basketball and hands after taking shots.
Jenny Lehigh
45:09
Facts. Enforcing policy is hard enough.
Janice DeMonsi
45:35
We are not checking out any equipment at this time so our pick up games have gone down - and students are staying away from one another - they are already not doing full contact as they had been
Bill Moorman
46:10
AGREED BILL!
Janet Branch
46:12
Florida International University announces closure yesterday for 4pm until April 4th. We were disinfecting with C-diff using electrostatic sprayers. Pro staff are working remotely.
Ryan Hagen
46:31
Well said Bill.
Chris Crume
46:32
Agree!
Pam Su
46:35
Here at San Francisco State University, we are already closed except for opening our locker rooms/showers for 2 hrs/day, M/W/F. Please note that the City of Los Angeles has already closed all gyms and health clubs in the area. We will be posting things on social media/web to encourage students to do things wherever they are to continue to stay healthy and well.
Brittany Rende
46:59
Bill, as always, well said!
Kacy Toberg
47:30
Agree. Closure is necessary for social distancing and reducing the spread or rate of spread.
Vilayat Del Rossi
47:43
We are currently open, but based on local changes and other CA facilities, I have recommended to campus leadership to close facility as soon as possible. I am awaiting response.
Rob Cornetta
49:27
Sharing bodyweight workouts and yoga videos to our listservs
Todd Bowyer
49:38
Yes Bill! Great point on how staying open may go against wellness. I advocated closing our facility but have been instructed by my administration to be open Mon-Fri 7-7, Sat 9-5, Sun 12-5. We are typically staffed by students but they aren't permitted to work and have been dismissed from campus, so they are giving me dining services staff in need of hours to work the fitness center. Now I have to train dining staff to work in a fitness setting. I'm so frustrated by this.
Craig Decker
49:42
we are going to be planning a virtual 5k.
Rob Cornetta
49:47
Also considering streaming workouts via twitch
andrew doyle
49:53
At Southern New Hampshire University we are looking to hold classes through zoom starting next week
Dana Lopez
49:56
Les Mills is offering free on demand programming for clients.
Susan White
49:57
I think it would be helpful for NIRSA to send out a recommendation to close facilities.
Angie Nagle
49:58
Looking into streaming fitness programs
Janet Branch
50:00
Our Fitness team is creating YouTube videos to pump out through social media
Vilayat Del Rossi
50:16
Can we pivot from the term "social distancing" to "physical distancing"...No need in making people feel more isolated that they might already feel. You can still stay socailly connected with a little physical distance.
Max Miller
50:31
Max Miller, Swarthmore College - We have a physical education requirement for ALL students. In the beginning phase of creating an online curriculum for physical education (fitness training, yoga, walk jog run, wellness seminar, etc.).
Cindy Strine
50:52
We partner with Les Mills and they have sent out an email to send to participants for at home workouts, and we are including other youtube workouts. Intramurals is ramping up an Esports tournament that students can participate in. Our club rowing coach is putting together an online regatta for participants as well.
Angie Nagle
50:58
Leadership Zoom ins for our club sport leaders
Skyler Rorabaugh
51:05
Getting our group fitness instructors to share LIVE workouts through facebook, and making sure that people have access to wellness resources that address mental health hurdles caused by this as well.
Skyler Rorabaugh
51:11
is les mills free just for institutions that have a contract or are they streaming for anyone?
Kari Post
51:20
We are finding already available resources (YouTube videos, etc) and sending those links to our students/community periodically. "Here's what you can do from home, on your own, with no equipment this week".
Jillian Harper
52:09
we are in the middle of hiring for the upcoming summer and fall semesters...planning on doing online zoom interviews so we can still get through all our applicants...
Bill Moorman
53:04
Will we be discussing staffing retention during this challenging time?
Rob Cornetta
53:14
Beyond fitness, just being a resource for students who may be struggling with transitioning to online learning.
Rob Cornetta
53:20
Being a point of contact for them.
Max Miller
53:21
What regulations are your institutions implementing regarding student employment and not being able to employ students while the institution is shut down?
Angie Nagle
53:26
Any ideas for connecting our student staff?
Marci Iverson
53:31
We are looking to partner with those in Student Life & Housing at Viterbo University
Rob Cornetta
53:39
Also, ideas for student staff working remotely? So they can get paid?
Leah Bank
53:50
Can we add a programming continuity section to the Google Document?
Rob Cornetta
53:54
100% George.
Jillian Harper
53:58
healthy cooking classes offered through zoom
Hailey Hester
54:09
One idea is developing an online outdoor challenge for marketing and interaction. For instance how to build a primitive fire safely and then have people post images or short videos tagging the rec center for a chance to win prizes.
Vilayat Del Rossi
54:14
We are setting up a Zoom room to possibly deliver group x, personal training, staff trainings, affinity center programs, interviews, onboaring training, undergraduate internships, etc.
Jillian Harper
54:28
really focus on what they are grateful for...try to focus on the positivity...
Ryan McNicholas
55:11
How are we managing stress in these trying times?
Dana Lopez
55:16
Down Dog Yoga On-Demand is open to anyone. Les Mills On-Demand is technically open to anyone they just aren’t advertising it that way.
Kathy Obuszewski
55:55
A friend of mine set up a virtual cosplay night through google meetings instead of meeting at a bar. this can be adapted to group ex
Wendy Motch-Ellis
56:00
The new research on z/igen is the idea of tribes smaller interest groups - and use of you tube and social media to create campus tribes based on interest areas - nature photography competitions, group workouts, etc
Jason Vlastaras
56:05
We're looking to run an online Intramurals video game tournament. We're also finishing editing on at home workout videos we'll be sending to participants. As well as exploring online consulting with our personal training clients and athletic training clients
Adam Jines
56:07
What is everyone messaging to Student Staff members going unemployed during this time (specifically Rec Centers closed indefinitely)
Angie Nagle
57:18
We are advocating for at least work study students to still be paid.....waiting on HR.
Marci Iverson
58:17
Majority of my staff are work-study. Those who are on work-study will continue to be paid based on an average of their last 3 pay checks. We are working on a couple options for those who are not on work-study to continue to have work/be paid.
Chelsea Phipps
58:39
UNC Greensboro is paying students for scheduled shifts until further notice. Students are not required to work and are encouraged to leave campus.
Craig Decker
58:54
UAB is paying all employees for at least two weeks. They are exploring additional funds for any weeks beyond that.
Craig Decker
59:35
For those doing average of pay, has there been conversations regarding actually using their schedules?
Skyler Rorabaugh
01:00:42
University of Colorado Colorado Springs- We are closed for a month as of now. We have been asked to get creative on how we can have hire level student employees can "work" remotely. LinkedIn learning has free trainings that you can customize towards their positions, such as leadership, marketing, conflict management, customer service...etc.. Putting some guidelines around it now, such as students taking certain amount of these courses, and write a report of how they can apply it to their positions.
Chris Nasti
01:01:35
American University is publishing a menu of telework projects that we intend to open to all of our facility student employees.
Andy Milton
01:01:36
I agree with the comment about could NIRSA send out a comment recommending full facility closure; I know however depending where you are and live could impact this but having that data or note from industry leader could be helpful
Kathy Obuszewski
01:02:19
I would think that webinars and sharing reading, I bring back my digital in services for lifeguards with a heavy first aid
Rob Cornetta
01:02:36
Thank you!
Skyler Rorabaugh
01:03:39
for campus rec programs that have nutrition- we are doing from home demos and recipes of VERY easy foods to make- rice, eggs, potatoes... this can help students who are living off campus and potentially quarantined.
Skyler Rorabaugh
01:03:57
we= University of Colorado Colorado Springs
Scott George
01:05:39
In regards to virtual/remote wellness, such as bodyweight workouts, yoga, nutrition, activities to do in nature - would you plan on making these available to external community, other schools as well in addition to the students on your campus? This is a great opportunity for NIRSA as experts of health/wellness to lead a lot of other groups/people in need of these activities/knowledge. Would love to see a place like a shared document where some of these best practice videos can be found
Bill Moorman
01:06:15
Anything specific for IM Officials training? Lots of "You make the call" videos? Any fun ideas to keep them engaged?
Hailey Hester
01:06:39
Slack the app has also been useful for my student staff in place of teams.
Rob Cornetta
01:07:31
I think the NFHS has some solid officiating courses/modules.
Kathy Obuszewski
01:07:35
I started a discussion on NIRSA Connect to share various webinars and learning tools
Jillian Harper
01:08:00
great time for online service opportunities
Jillian Harper
01:08:07
here is a sample website https://www.catchafire.org/volunteer?name_filter=&type_filter=1&type_filter=2&page=1
BILL Crockett
01:09:32
Jill great idea!!!
Skyler Rorabaugh
01:09:56
We are asking our fitness student employees to send at least one card/note to the nursing homes around the city that are closed to visitors at part of that gratitude and connection piece that is so important right now.
Craig Decker
01:10:58
One of the Channels in Teams I created was a "Break Room" to give the staff a space and the freedom to continue the social piece of work.
Jillian Harper
01:11:07
Thanks Bill. A lot of people can't be visited in hospitals and nursing homes right now either...so writing letters to patients in those areas could be a great group activity that can be done from a distance
BILL Crockett
01:11:27
I like that too
Hailey Hester
01:11:56
An idea to keep outdoor student staff engaged is putting out case studies or links to online quizzes to test their wilderness First aid knowledge. This could be expanded to students at large. The NOLS newsletter puts things out: https://blog.nols.edu/2018/05/31/shock-causes-treatments?utm_campaign=The%20Scenario&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=84616883&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9MRRXdzY6e_xWFhlRhtLPjIHzVxa9ckXMSUX07rRTSQA_60zLabH8hEzatpJ0juD9wMjQjB-z1dTBnRvx6lFcpky3pMg&_hsmi=84616883
Dana Lopez
01:13:10
ECU just got asked the same question about childcare
Dana Lopez
01:14:16
thanks Bill!
NIRSA Smartboard
01:15:00
Yes, chat can be saved
Leah Bank
01:17:33
When does the risk of exercising/being active in the rec center facility outweigh the benefits of staying open? I think this is a question that people are trending and basing off of one another. I’m not the decision maker, just trying to stay up with the trends of the geographical area.
Janice DeMonsi
01:17:35
is anyone already thinking about their summer camp plans?
Scott George
01:18:09
I just want to thank everyone on this call and the larger NIRSA Community for taking leadership in this area... many of our Special Olympics Programs worldwide have suspended training and competition. There is now a big gap in our athletes lives that needs to be filled where their sports used to be - all of these ideas that have come from this call will be great to help fill that need of health, wellness and activity.
Bill Moorman
01:18:16
Yes, summer camp is one of the main things we are working on remotely. I am hoping this is over by the summer.
BILL Crockett
01:18:25
We are. I agree with what George just translated.
Hailey Hester
01:19:51
Wondering how far in advance people have cancelled trips for outdoor? We cancelled up to Mar. 30 and pending updates in the next two weeks for the rest of the semester. If you have cancelled further what guidelines are you looking at to do so?
Wendy Motch-Ellis
01:21:04
Several schools have done fitness challenges - is there a platform we can all get behind where college students could track their workout times that we could all share with various institutions - not sure who has platforms that could help support/host
Jenny Lehigh
01:22:28
George 2020
Rob Cornetta
01:22:34
Agreed!
BILL Crockett
01:22:40

Jason Darby
01:25:11
For those who are working or hosting external camps in your facilities over the summer, what contingencies and communication are you having with those groups, and are you working through how you handle if a camper displays symptoms? Any educational tools you are planning to communicate to their counselors since they are not directly affiliated with your programs?
Craig Decker
01:25:26
The breweries around me are closing,...now I have a crisis :)
Erik Jaek
01:25:43

Tom - you need some books ;)
Leah Bank
01:26:26
Outdoor Nation (AORE) had a Campus Challenge that was outdoor adventure related. Students submitted their outdoor activities for posts accumulation and could work together with campus as a whole. I wished there was one for fitness.
Pam Su
01:27:32
California and Ohio start home isolation for everyone over age 65 and those with underlying conditions today. Our entire states.
Leah Bank

Thanks, everyone. Wash your hands!
Jason Darby

Thank you all for facilitating this.
Lynn Nester
01:32:40
Yes, continue to webinars and Zooms - and would be great to have area specific focused ones (Directors, Assoc Directors, IMs, Group Ex/Fitness, Outdoor, Club Sports, etc)
