NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University’s Recreation Complex will close at the end of business hours Thursday, March 19 and remain closed until further notice, according to Rec Complex Director William Ackel.

“We will reevaluate the situation on April 10 and consider the possibility of reopening at that time,” Ackel said.

The Rec Complex includes the golf course, pro shop and tennis courts. The pool, which had not yet opened for the season, will remain closed as well.

“We are being proactive in the interest of public health and the safety of our patrons and employees to do our part in preventing the spread of coronavirus.  We appreciate the public’s patience at this time,” Ackel said.
