The Cedar Falls Recreation and Fitness Center will be reopening on Monday, July 6, at 5:00 AM, to members. The Rec will close at 8:00 pm, Monday through Friday, from July 6 –July 17. The Falls Aquatic Center will also be reopening on Saturday, July 4, at 12:00 PM (weather permitting) to season pass holders.
The City announced the closure of both these facilities on June 30, 2020, after an employee at each facility tested positive for COVID-19. The facilities have been deep-cleaned in accordance with CDC guidelines.
Regarding the situation, the City continues to comply with CDC and Iowa Department of Public Health guidelines. Due to privacy reasons, no additional information can be released publically regarding the two infected employees.
Both the Rec and the Falls will continue to follow their COVID-19 precautions and all patrons must abide by these rules in order to use the facilities. This includes the wearing of a mask at the Rec and at the Falls (those in the pool do not need to wear a mask at that time) and following all social distancing rules. At this time, only members are allowed to use the Falls and the Rec. No person showing symptoms of COVID-19, including fever or cough, should enter the facilities.
City staff continues to work to provide services in a manner that is safe for the community and for City staff and thanks the public for its cooperation and understanding during this challenging time.
