WORKING TOGETHER FOR A SAFE ENVIRONMENT
Based on guidelines put forth by the Governor as well as recommendations by the CDC and local officials, we will observe the following in our YMCA centers:
WAIVERS: All members are required to sign a waiver to enter the facility. Complete the waiver now to save yourself time on your first visit. For youth under 18 years old, a parent or guardian must sign the waiver prior to visiting.
AGE GUIDELINES: Youth members who are at least 16 years old may visit the Y without a parent or guardian once a waiver is signed. Youth members under 16 years old may have access to specific areas with a parent or guardian. Please contact your local Y for more information.
RESERVATIONS: Reservations are required for group exercise classes, swimming pools, Child Watch and other select amenities. Reservations are not required in the Wellness Center (ie. areas with cardiovascular and strength training equipment). Social distancing guidelines will be observed in these areas and some equipment may not be available. Reservations can be made up to 48 hours in advance. Visit your branch's LOCATION PAGE to make your reservations.
TEMPERATURE CHECKS: Temperature checks will be required in Y Academy but will not be required for members and guests in other areas of our facility. Persons with a temperature of 100.4 F or more will not be allowed to enter the facility.
FACE COVERINGS: Face coverings are required for individuals ages 5 years old and older, who are not in the pool or shower. UPDATED MASK POLICY.
DESIGNED FOR SOCIAL DISTANCE: Modifications have been made inside of our facilities so participants can maintain at least 6 ft. distance between each other.
CLEANING: Our staff team will continue to ensure the highest standards for cleaning in all areas of the facility as well as follow all health and safety guidelines that are currently in place. We encourage our members to be a part of the process and clean their equipment before and after use for your safety.
Restrooms, locker rooms, and commonly touched surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected frequently throughout each. Pool decks will be cleaned daily. We have added extra hand sanitizing stations, cleaning supplies and staff in addition to a system to ensure that equipment is cleaned and sanitized between uses.
EQUIPMENT: The health and safety of our community is at the forefront. We are focused on no-touch or low-touch interactions. We ask that members please bring their own towel, mat, water bottle, pool equipment, locks and athletic equipment as these items will not be available.
Healthy At Home Resources
If you're not ready to return to the Y, that's OK! We will continue providing resources for you so you can stay healthy at home.
