Key to New York City

NYC Emergency Executive Order 225, also known as Key to New York City, requires members of indoor fitness centers, including Dodge Fitness Center (DFC), to show proof they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the FDA or WHO.

All members looking to access DFC for recreational purposes on or after September 13, 2021, will need to present one of the following proofs of vaccination: 

  • CDC Vaccination Card, or copy/photo of card

  • NYC Vaccination Record, or other immunization record from within or outside the US.

  • NYC COVID Safe App: Android | iOS

  • Excelsior Pass (Excelsior Pass Plus)

Please remember that in addition to your proof of vaccination, members will be required to show their ReopenCU green pass, have their CUID, and wear a mask in the facility throughout their visit, including during their workout. The only exception to University mask policy is when actively swimming in Uris Natatorium.

Members will have the opportunity to either show proof of vaccination at every visit or utilize a Fusion “Pre-Check” option and only show proof of vaccination at the first visit.

For members who cannot show proof of vaccination, please email [email protected] to learn about alternate Columbia Recreation options outside of the DFC in Wellbeing, Intramurals, Group Fitness, Personal Training, and Club Sports.
