User Regulations and Guidelines

Personal Daily Health checks based on ASU guidelines: Will I be screened when I come into the facility?

Some buildings have screeners at the entrance, but because of staffing levels not every building will have someone stationed at the door. For those buildings, ASU is asking that visitors ask themselves the following questions, the same used by the screeners according to CDC guidelines. Be honest; if you can say “yes” to any of these, please do not go inside. Go home and contact your health care provider and your supervisor before returning to campus. If we can help to meet your needs without you needing to enter the building, we will do so.


Are you sick or do you feel ill?


Do you have a fever of 100.4 or higher?


Have you experienced any new respiratory symptoms, such as a cough or shortness of breath, within the last 14 days?


Have you had close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or who has been tested and is waiting for results while they had symptoms or in the two weeks before they began showing symptoms?*

*Note: The CDC defines close contact as: a) being within approximately 6 feet (2 meters) of a COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time; close contact can occur while caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a health care waiting area or room with a COVID-19 case; or b) having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g., being coughed on).


As we welcome you back to the Sun Devil Fitness Complex, the health, safety and confidence of users and team members are our top priority. Please be aware that there will be some changes to the Sun Devil experience, all of which have been designed with your safety in mind.
