“We look forward to welcoming Blue Demons back to the facility and meeting fitness, wellness and recreation needs in person," says Sarah E. Hardin, associate director of campus recreation.
The Ray will be open Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Friday from 6 a.m. – 7 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
While almost every space will be available, use is restricted to fewer people or a setup more conducive to doing activities in a way that reduces contact and movement near others. To comply with Illinois Phase 4 guidelines, staff at The Ray have made modifications throughout the facility:
Beyond capacity limits and a modified equipment layout, staff at The Ray are taking additional measures to ensure patron and staff safety:
“Faculty, staff and students can expect safe and efficient use of the facility. We have intentionally moved equipment and set up activity areas so that people may enjoy their use without feeling cramped or worried," Hardin says.
“Just like every other university recreation center, we are approaching our opening plan as a 'work in progress' at this time. We're confident our setup will provide a safe experience and hopeful it will be conducive to a fun one. Once people begin to use The Ray again, we welcome feedback that may result in some changes to help us better serve the DePaul community."
