Online Sign-Ups for Limited Use:

The general guidelines that Symons Recreation Complex will be following to ensure the health and safety of our staff and users are:

  • If you are sick, stay home. If you have a temperature, stay home. If someone in your house is sick, stay home.
  • If you have allergies and can’t control sneezing, stay home.
  • Use online gym/workout services if possible. See above for log on information
  • 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 avoid 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.
  • The water fountains will not be accessible, until we move into Phase 2.  Please bring water from home.
  • The moveable floor fans have been removed.  They will not return until Phase 2.
  • Wear a mask as you enter and leave the building. Consider wearing a mask during your workout. Symons Recreation Complex staff will be wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
  • Wash your hands before you start working out and after you finish your workout. If it is not possible to wash your hands, use hand sanitizer when you enter and before you leave. Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the facility.
  • Avoid using lifting gloves or other personal items that are not easily cleaned.
  • Wipe down each piece of equipment before and after you use it, using a fresh wipe each time, and dispose of the wipes appropriately.
  • If you get the urge to sneeze or cough, put on your mask (if not already wearing one) and cover your nose, mouth and mask with a napkin or handkerchief.  Wash your hands and face thoroughly before returning to your activity.
  • Symons Recreation Complex will provide gloves for any user that requests them.
  • Once the staffed hours begin, a special time frame will be reserved for older adults.  This time frame is Monday –Friday 8am-noon.  We will not be offering children programming during this time frame.
  • The facility has the right to refuse service to anyone exhibiting symptoms or not following facility guidelines.


The following information is for Phase 1 of opening the facility.  Phase 1 only allows for 10 people in a space.  So that will mean 10 people in the exercise rooms and 10 people in the pool area.  The Richland County health department will let us know when it is safe to increase move into Phase 2 which allows for up to 50 people per area.

Exercise Rooms

The weight and exercise rooms at Symons Recreation Complex opened May 15 @ 5:00am, for members with keyless entry devices (fobs).  This 24/7 fob use will continue until Tuesday May 19th, when the SRC will be staffed, normal summer business hours. (M-F) 5:30am-8:30pm; Sat; 7:30-4:30; and Sun 1:00-4:30pm)

Please note the changes that have been made in the exercise rooms:

  • Several pieces of equipment have been taped off, not usable, to provide for 6 feet of social distancing.
  • The water fountains will not be accessible, until we move into Phase 2.  Please bring water from home.
  • The moveable floor fans have been removed.  They will not return until Phase 2.
  • Please clean the equipment that you use, before and after using.  Additional spray bottles and paper towel stations have been installed.
  • Please practice keep 6 feet between you and other users.
  • Exercise mats have been removed in Phase 1. If you use a mat, please bring one from home.
  • A limit of 10 people will be allowed in the exercise room.  One-hour time slots can be reserved at the front desk, email  or on-line, later this week.


***Due to the restrictions that must occur in Phase 1, no water exercise classes or swimming lessons will be offered until Phase 2.

Adult lap times–   Only 10 people** will be allowed in the pool at one time.  This will be 5 lap swimmers and 4 walkers, during adult lap times.  All people using the pool must maintain 6 feet distancing.

  • Lap swimming/water walking will be for ½ hour time slots to allow more people the opportunity to use the pool.
  • Please send an email to  or call 647-8522 to reserve a time.  This registration will soon be on-line.
  • Please let us know how many family members will be lap swimming.


Whirlpool– Only one person will be allowed in the whirlpool at a time. Limit 10 minutes

Sauna- Only two people will be allowed in the sauna at a time. Please bring a towel to sit on when using the sauna. Limit 10 minutes

Family swim times.   Please note below, that a family of 4 counts as 1 unit for counting purposes.

  • Family swim will be for 1-hour time slots.
  • Please send an email to  or call 647-8522 to reserve a time. See above to schedule on line
  • Please let us know how many people from your family will be using the pool.

** The rule for 10 people is defined as 1 person from a family.  So if 2 adults from one family come swimming, they may share a lap lane.  The will count as 1 person. The lifeguard counts as a person, so eight more people will be allowed access to the pool.

Showers/locker rooms

The locker rooms will be cleaned hourly.  There will be a limit of 6 people in a locker room at a time.

Please let the receptionist know which locker that you used, and it will be disinfected, between users.

A shower will be installed on the pool deck.  This will allow users to go directly to the pool, without entering the locker room.  Once this shower is installed, please note the following rules;

  • Wear your swimming suit under your clothes to the pool.
  • Remove your shoes before entering the pool deck and carry them to the disrobing area
  • Disrobe in the designated area.
  • Take a shower before entering the pool. No soap or shampoo products.
  • Use the Pool/whirlpool/sauna
  • When you are finished, take a shower.  No soap or shampoo products.
  • Towel dry.
  • Either carry your clothing or them put on.  Please do not put on your shoes in the pool area.
  • Leave the pool, through the atrium doors, onto the patio, and then to the sidewalk.  This will prevent our lobby from getting slippery.


  • Racquetball for family member will be available.  Racquetball for non-family members will not be available until risk factors are reduced.


Exercise Classes

The outdoor 5:30a.m.-6:15am Tuesday and Thursday exercise class, will begin on Tuesday May 19th, on the SRC patio. Social distancing will be observed.

**Due to the restrictions of Phase 1, the indoor land and water exercise classes will not start, until Phase 2. The on-line virtual classes will continue for members.

We are looking at offering other outdoor exercise classes.
