Mizzou Executes 'Soft Reopening' for Athletic Facility

Jason Scott Headshot

While still far from business-as-usual, the University of Missouri has reportedly begun the process of resuming regular in-person operations with the soft reopening of the South End Zone facility at Memorial Stadium this week.

According to the Columbia Missourian, the athletic facility’s resumption of operations is part of a plan to “repopulate the campus,” according to university spokesperson Christian Basi. 

The athletic facility was selected to reopen in part because student-athletes are still in town receiving injury treatment. Deputy athletic director of communications Nick Joos told the Missourian that people coming to the facility will be verbally screened and subject to a temperature test. Meanwhile, social distancing measures will be enforced. Joos said that two more facilities could resume operations by the end of the week, following the same safety protocols.
