All UCLA Recreation facilities will close until further notice starting Monday in order to reduce the spread of the new coronavirus, said Erinn McMahan, executive director of UCLA recreation, in a Sunday email.
Those who have personal items in a locker in the John Wooden Center, Sunset Canyon Recreation Center, North Pool, Student Activities Center and Kinross Recreation Center can collect their belongings Monday and Tuesday from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.
Lockers will not be cleared and belongings will remain secure for those who cannot immediately retrieve their belongings.
The email did not state what the current status of student memberships or program registration is. However, McMahan said UCLA Recreation appreciates students’ patience while the department develops the resources to process the membership and registration requests.
UCLA announced Friday it will move all classes online wherever possible through spring quarter. Since then, other campus entities and programs have shut down, including athletic team practices, the Hammer Museum and the Fowler Museum.
However, the campus itself remains open, including on-campus housing and facilities such as restaurants, stores and libraries.
There still have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at UCLA.
