Guidelines

All students utilizing recreation and wellness facilities and programs will be required to show a green pass on their ROAR app to participate. If they show a red X, they will be denied access and will need to follow the TCNJ contract tracing protocols that are communicated to them. Any student showing symptoms of COVID- 19 should not participate in recreation and wellness programs and should refrain from coming into contact with others before obtaining proper medical advice.

Students who meet the COVID-19 vaccination requirement will have access to all facilities and recreation and wellness programs. Regardless of vaccination status, all students will be required to abide by campus mask guidelines. Important information and the latest update on mask guidelines can be located here

Students who are unvaccinated and meet the exemption requirements will be required to wear appropriate face covering while participating in indoor programs and while inside any recreation facility. Unvaccinated students will not be permitted to participate in any activities or sports that are classified as high contact, which means participants would have  high contact with others and for which physical distancing is not feasible and enforced.

The following list specifies high contact and low contact activities. The list is not exhaustive and the classification of sports and activities not on the list will be communicated to participants before the program begins.
