COVID-19 protocols for sport and recreation facilities

Vaccination requirement

Effective January 2022, all users of UM's sport and recreation facilities aged 12 years and older will require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. Children 11 years and younger must be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult.

We will only accept Manitoba Immunization Cards, Manitoba Digital QR codes, Pan-Canadian PVC QR codes, ArriveCAN, and National Defence Canada Covid-19 Vaccine Record/Cards as immunization proof for entry into our facilities for individuals 18+. We will not accept any immunization records from out-of-country or other provinces and territories outside Manitoba. Any printouts of immunization records that do not contain scannable QR codes will not be accepted.

Mask policy

Please be reminded that 3-ply masks are required indoors at all times. We strongly encourage participants to wear masks while engaging in physical activity and while in individual workout spaces. Mask must be worn while actively exercising wherever physical distancing cannot be maintained. Movement in and between equipment/activities will require masking at all times.

Masks are required outdoors when physical distance cannot be maintained.

Facility capacity

Effective December 21, all sport and recreation facilities will be operating at 50 percent capacity.

  • Showers and lockers are available

UM students update:

Sport and Rec Fee

The Sport and Rec Fee was approved by the University’s Board of Governors in 2011 and supports the UM’s commitment to active living, sport and recreation.  

The Fee is mandatory and applied to all students’ tuition based on their status of part-time or full-time study, regardless of access to facilities as the fee is not a user fee. With the goal of universally promoting wellness across our campuses through access to programming, the decision was made to not allow for opting out.
