Face Masks Required at ALL TIMES in the Fitness Centres – Effective Immediately

As a result of the newest Provincial guidelines relating to indoor individual exercise, effective immediately all patrons are required to wear non-medical face masks at all times. 

Please note that this extends the previous requirements for mask use in the fitness facilities, including: 

  • Masks are required when using cardio machines 
  • All areas of the fitness centres, including while performing physical activity 
  • All areas of the studio, including while performing physical activity 


Please note that exemptions to this policy, which include:

  • Persons with an underlying medical condition or disability which impacts the ability to wear a face mask 
  • Persons unable to place or remove a face covering without assistance 


Patrons who are unable to wear a mask must maintain at least 3m (10 feet) distance from other members and staff at all times when in the facility. Requests for exemptions and questions can be sent to: info.recreation@ubc.ca 

We are encouraging everyone to do their part and wear a mask. Additional information on how to wear, use, and store your mask is available. This precautionary measure is to protect the health and safety of our community as visits to UBC Sport Facilities increase. In addition to wearing masks, guests are encouraged to continue observing distancing in common areas such as hallways, washrooms, and entrances and exits.
