In order to protect the Knox community and especially our vulnerable members, the College is closing all Indoor Athletic Facilities until further notice. We know that this measure imposes a burden on those who use those facilities for their daily exercise, but we must all play our part in limiting the transmission of COVID-19. The situation will be monitored daily and when CDC guidance indicates it is safe to do so, we will reopen. In the meantime, we encourage individuals to exercise outdoors, practicing safe social distancing and adhering to the guidelines below.

  • Outdoor athletics facilities are open per facility usage policies.
  • “Physical Distancing” of 6 feet between individuals is required.
  • Individual workouts only.
