From the President of UTHealth, Dr. Colasurdo:
Given the nature of our work as an academic health center and the inherent risks to our workforce and student body, UTHealth will continue our existing preventative measures and policies. We remain committed to following CDC guidelines, including social distancing, masking, thorough handwashing, and other precautionary measures, including conducting meetings and gatherings virtually whenever possible.
Your safety, as always, remains our highest priority. As health care leaders, we must remain vigilant and model the safest behavior for others. It is our responsibility to continue safe practices, to monitor our temperature and any symptoms of illness, to stay home or seek medical attention when we are sick, and to adapt our personal habits for the public well-being.
With that, the REC will continue to do its part:

As of Monday, August 17th the REC reopened our doors with a Texas-size welcome and a high five from at least 6 feet away. We started with Phase I and moved into our Phase II following Labor Day. As of October 5th, we are in Phase III. Assuming all goes well, we will continue to evolve the guidelines to best meet the needs of our community and gradually move into other phases as safety allows.
In Phase III we have increased from 50% to 75% capacity (but have not yet reach max capacity in any phase) and we are beginning individual, virtual and distanced programs – all with COVID-19-appropriate limitations. We are also accepting Sponsored Guests which now includes: Single-Day Guest Pass and 7 Days Inclusive Guest Pass. We are no longer selling 5-Visit Punch Cards or accepting previously purchased 5-Visit Punch Cards for entry.
Members + Staff = Teamwork: It will take both us and you to take on an important role in making the REC a safe experience for all.
