Dear LSU Health New Orleans community,


     As we move forward to a new normal, we hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. The Wellness Center staff is looking forward to getting back in the swing of things!

     First of all, please be patient and flexible as we move through these fluid and uncertain times. We have consulted with top Public health officials and implemented CDC guidelines to ensure a safe and secure environment. While we navigate through this pandemic, please be aware that policies and procedures may change quickly. Safety will always be paramount.


For ALL of our members:      


We ask that if you are sick, caring for someone sick, or have a temperature – PLEASE stay home.

Wear a mask while in the Wellness Center.

Wash your hands before, during, and after your workout.

If it is not possible to wash your hands, use hand sanitizer frequently.

 Use online gym/workout services if possible.

Please bring your own mat for stretching and workouts.

 When walking through the facility, maintain a distance of at least six feet from other members and employees if at all possible.  

Plan your workout routine ahead of time to reduce lingering and socializing.  This will allow more members to work out given the reduced occupancy necessitated by distancing requirements.

 Limit the items you touch within the gym to only the items you will use.

Wipe down each piece of equipment before and after you use it, using a fresh wipe each time, and dispose of the wipes appropriately.





Thank you and Good Health!
