REC Online is an alternative for residents after cancellations or delays of many popular programs and events, and several facility closures triggered by COVID-19. “A lot of people are stuck in their homes and the City wants to provide Bloomington-specific activities and programming,” Recreation Manager Alison Warren said, pictured above with her daughter.
