University of Minnesota Crookston Wellness Center closed Saturday, November 21 per the Governor’s Executive Order 20-99. You may, however, see some students or staff in the Wellness Center. The Governor’s executive order allows varsity collegiate athletic teams (not intramural or club) to continue to train in recreation facilities.

In season sports teams and any athletic related rehabs will continue to utilize the Wellness Center as necessary. All other workouts, programs, and activities will be paused during this time. In addition, the order allows classroom instruction to continue at these locations. Public health operations—such as COVID testing and screening and influenza vaccinations—will also continue uninterrupted in the Wellness Center.

If you are a member of the Wellness Center your payroll deduction will be halted during the time of closure. If you paid in cash you may choose to be reimbursed during the time of closure or if you choose to extend your membership for the length of time of closure. If you have any other questions please contact Kamille Meyer at kmwahlin@crk.umn.edu.
