Entry requirements for the BRWC during COVID-19

Category: COVID-19 Re-Opening

What are the entry requirements for the BRWC during COVID-19?

The University of Portland operates the Beauchamp Center in accordance with State and County regulations as they apply to COVID-19 and will be closed if guidelines require it.  

Update: July 30th 2021

Masks that cover the nose and mouth are now required in Beauchamp at all times, including while working out, due to CDC and State of Oregon guidance.  This applies to all users, whether vaccinated or not.

Only students, faculty and staff are currently allowed to use the Beauchamp Center.  Guests, alumni, and spouses will be allowed again once conditions allow it..

All entrants must fill out the Waiver and Liability Release, before entering the facility. 

Patrons who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and have not yet recovered, and/or are still within the 14-day quarantine period are not permitted to enter the BRWC.

Patrons who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 are not permitted to enter the BRWC. Symptoms include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Some COVID-19 carriers do not exhibit symptoms.

Patrons who have had contact with anyone within the last 14 days who has or suspects having COVID-19, may not enter.

People who have COVID-19 may not have symptoms, may have mild symptoms or may not yet be showing symptoms. This means that people in the Beauchamp Center may be contagious with COVID-19, so it is very important that members continue to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by wearing a mask if unvaccinated, washing hands often, and cleaning high-touch surfaces frequently.
