    “We’re all responsible for our wellness.

During this period, it is all our responsibility to slow down the spread of the Coronavirus by practicing safety methods that not only keep ourselves safe, but that of our loved ones.

In that effort, Broward College North Campus Wellness Center has updated its facility to include the necessary supplies to ensure sanitization, safety, and provide instructions for proper cleaning and disposal of materials. We ask that if you are experiencing fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea that you stay home. Additionally, if you have visited the Wellness Center and think you possibly had COVID-19 upon visiting, please contact the gym supervisor at 954-201-2314.

Please note that the CDC advises that older adults or people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Also, people who show no symptoms can spread the Coronavirus if they are infected. As such, gym users should evaluate their risk and determine whether to attend the Gym. Broward College cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to the Coronavirus during your visit.

By agreeing to this, you acknowledge your personal responsibility to do your part by following safety protocol and to clean up your designated machines before and after use. However, even with these implementations there is still a risk associated with coming to the Wellness Center that includes but is not limited to the possibility of contracting the COVID-19 illness.
