Xavier is carefully monitoring trends associated with COVID at Xavier and making decisions based on our data.

Due to the reduction of COVID cases in our University community, the Recreation Center at the HUB will reduce the mask policy by allowing members to remove their masks once they get to where they will be exercising. Masks are required while in the facility and all times you are not actively exercising.

The decisions around masking in the Rec Center are based on current cases on campus and may be reversed if we see an increase of cases.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
