Herbert Wellness Center and COVID-19

The Patti and Allan Herbert Wellness Center is committed to providing our services in as safe an environment as possible while adhering to county guidelines regarding recreational facilities in addition to University-wide protocols.

Our Commitment to Safety

Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Miami-Dade County, and University of Miami experts in public health, below are the measures we are taking to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Gym wipes, hand sanitizer, and disinfectants are available throughout the facility.
Regular cleaning and disinfecting of restrooms, doors, handles, touch screens, etc.
Fitness staff will continually clean the fitness equipment and monitor the Parsons Fitness Room to ensure safety protocols are followed by all users.

Help Us Slow the Spread

While we navigate the new normal, we request that our valued members follow additional guidelines while utilizing our facilities. In addition to the below guidelines, all non-student members must digitally sign the updated waiver.

Masks are not required on the Coral Gables Campus. Individuals who wish to wear a mask for their protection are encouraged to do so, and that decision should be respected by all members of our community.
Follow physical distancing guidelines as dictated by building signage and instructions from the staff.
Anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms defined by the CDC will be asked to leave immediately.
Clean equipment before and after each use (e.g. dumbbells, grips, medicine balls, heavy bags, etc.)
Registration for group exercise classes using the online portal or the app (search for UM Wellness) is required.
