COVID-19 has changed how we operate to keep you safe during this pandemic. 


To keep your health and wellness a top priority, we have:

  • followed the NS Public Health guidelines to ensure safe operations so Mount Students can return to the Mount Fitness Centre and gymnasium!
  • adapted to provide in-person workouts for Mount students, with individual workout ZONES and a minimum of 6 feet physical distancing.  Get in the Zone with 13 Zones in the Fitness Centre with a variety of equipment and 6 zones in the AGB Gymnasium for sports and activities.
  • created online booking system so you can fit us into your daily schedule with ease!  This online system allows you to book your workout time, 24-72 hours in advance.
  • created a “MSVU University Activities Waiver – Athletics Department” for participation in activities within the Mount Fitness Centre and the Athletics & Recreation Office.  Please ensure you take the time to read it carefully prior to arrival.  You will need to sign the document prior to participation in our programs or activities.
  • introduced a mask policy:  masks are required while inside the MFC. Masks can be removed when exercising and directly engaged in physical activity in your zone but are required at all other times.
  • limited our capacity
  • limited our hours of operation
  • enhanced our cleaning practices
  • created a contactless sign-in process that will include a daily health screening questionnaire
  • installed Plexiglass barriers
  • installed an additional hand sanitizer station
