Executive Order 2020-176 allowed indoor Fitness Centers, Indoor Pools, and gymnasiums to open on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2020. 

We are excited to welcome you back to the Jack E. Kirksey Recreation Center! Things are going to look and feel a little different at the Rec Center. We have safety protocols in place and some new rules. Please take a minute to read this important information carefully.

  • Only members, class participants, or approved community groups will be permitted access to the Jack E. Kirksey Recreation Center at this time.
  • Patrons 5 years of age and older will be required to wear a face mask at all times.
  • To help us keep an accurate count of patrons and ensure social distancing, you will be required to enter the facility through the main entrance.  The exit will be through the emergency doors in the concession table area.  ADA participants will still be able to exit through accessible slider doors.
  • Patrons will be required to provide a physical photo ID (membership card, student ID, State issued ID, or a Driver’s License). Electronic ID will not be accepted. 
  • Patrons will scan in with their membership card or they must be enrolled in a class. This allows us to capture the patrons who have visited the facility and trace any possible exposures.
    1. A supervisor will visually check individual rooms for capacity limits hourly.
    2. Once capacity is reached, a sign will be placed in the front of the building or room alerting patrons. We ask that you abide by the capacity limits.
  • Patrons will scan out when leaving the facility.
  • Gym use is limited to classes, pickleball, volleyball, and basketball, or other organized sport within MDHHS guidelines. Playing Basketball is considered a high-risk activity. 


All Kirksey Recreation Center memberships have been extended for the duration of the closure. If you have paid in full for the year in advance, your expiration date has been extended. If you were paying via EFT on a monthly basis, your payment was stopped during the closure. Because the March 2020 payments had already been drafted when the Rec Center was closed, payments began again in October 2020.

Thank you for your patience with these account updates. If you have questions regarding your account, please email or call (734) 466-2900 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
