BRIC Pilot Reopening – June 14, 2021

In the time since the Bronco Recreation Intramural Complex (BRIC) closed in March 2020, ASI Campus Recreation has been working diligently to reopen as soon as it was deemed safe to do with guidance from the CDC and LA County Department of Public Health and approval from the CPP Safer Return Task Force. With our reopening plan approved, we look forward to seeing you as early as June 14, 2021 when the BRIC will begin a pilot reopening for CPP students only (see Eligibility below). Additionally, CPP students will be able to utilize the BRIC this summer at no cost!

During this initial pilot reopening, the third-floor fitness area as well as the BRIC pool (excluding the BRIC poolside lounge) will be available for students only to make a reservation for use.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is it safe?

While there’s always going to be a small amount of risk that can’t be mitigated, we believe we’re doing everything necessary to create a safe environment. Some examples of precautions being taken include:

  1. Closing the entire building at the end of every reservation for cleaning.
  2. Masks are mandatory for all staff and members.
  3. Available equipment is at a safe distance from the nearest piece of equipment.
  4. Limiting the number of people in an area at any given time.
  5. Requiring health screeners to be completed by all staff and members prior to coming to campus.
  6. New cleaning tag system so you know if you’re at a clean piece of equipment or if it requires cleaning prior to use.
  7. Plexiglass where needed.
  8. Tracking which members are in different areas at any given time allows for more effective contact tracing in the event of a positive test.
  9. Limiting what’s open/available until it’s safe to do so.

2. I’m an incoming first-year/transfer student, when will I get to use the BRIC?

Incoming first-year and transfer students who pay their first CPP student fees for the Fall 2021 semester will be able to utilize the BRIC in Fall 2021.

3. I’m a faculty/staff/alumni/sponsored member/etc., when will I be able to utilize the BRIC?

We’re anticipating a larger reopening, including expanding who’s eligible to utilize the BRIC in the fall.

4. When will Bronco Peak/activity courts/lounge spaces/Equipment Checkout/lockers/showers/etc. open or become available?

We hope to expand a few amenities/facilities later this summer. We anticipate the majority of our amenities/facilities becoming available this fall.

5. Will there be any classes?

For our initial pilot reopening this summer, there will not be programming planned as we focus on dialing in our processes for our larger reopening in the fall. We look forward to bringing back limited and in some cases, modified programming this fall. Virtual programming will continue for the foreseeable future. Visit ASI Portal to view.

6. How will parking work?

If you will be driving to campus, Parking Structure 2 will be the preferred option for BRIC members coming to workout. All 4 machines at the parking structure will have the option to purchase 1 hour ($2), 2 hour ($4), 3 hour ($6), and 1-day passes ($8). We recommend purchasing a 2-hour pass for $4 for one 90-minute reservation. This allows for 15 minutes before your reservation and 15 minutes after to get to and from the parking structure. Other options include carpooling, walking/biking/skateboarding to campus.

7. Will showers be available?

The showers in the locker rooms will be unavailable during the initial pilot reopening this summer.

8. Will lockers be available?

The only lockers that will be available during our initial pilot reopening this summer will be day-use lockers on the third floor. You must remove your belongings after your reservation session.

9. How do the membership credits work?

Because students were paying their full fees during each term the BRIC was closed due to the pandemic, the ASI Board of Directors approved giving all students enrolled in classes and paying the full ASI Facility & Operations Fee for every semester the BRIC was closed (Summer 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021, Summer 2021) a membership credit to the BRIC to be redeemed consecutively as early as when the BRIC reopens through June 30, 2030 at the latest. If you are a recent alumni and would like to redeem your credit(s) starting this summer, please email bricmemberships@cpp.edu

10. Do I have to wear a mask?

Until further notice, masks will be required by all staff and members from the point of walking into the building to the point you leave. The only exception is while in the pool. Masks must be worn on the pool deck at all time before and after using the pool.

11. If I’m fully vaccinated, why do I have to wear a mask at the BRIC when California is changing its restrictions to align with the CDC as of June 15, 2021?

The BRIC is following the current LA County Department of Public Health protocols for Institutions of Higher Education as the BRIC operates on the Cal Poly Pomona campus and the LA County Department of Public Health protocols for Gyms and Fitness Establishments because the BRIC falls into that category. The LA County Department of Public Health is working on updated guidance on both protocols. When these protocols change, we will update you when there will be any changes to the BRIC’s procedures or requirements.

12. Why do I have to make a reservation when California is changing its restrictions to align with the CDC as of June 15, 2021?

Reservations are a great way to manage the number of people using the facility. To ensure the health and safety of all our users and employees, we are limiting capacity and facility access as we reopen. To manage capacity and to ensure equitable access, we are using a reservation system as a temporary solution. We plan to open more facilities and increase their capacities throughout the summer. By fall, we anticipate that a reservation system will no longer be needed to manage facility capacities.
