STAYING SAFE TOGETHER

As we prepare to reopen our doors, please be assured that the safety of all our members, staff and volunteers – is our number one priority. We have put careful thought and planning into our reopening. We have followed guidance from the CDC, state and local health agencies and public officials to update our policies, practices and procedures to ensure that everyone that walks through our doors can stay safe and protected. Ensuring the health and safety of our Y community is everyone's responsibility, and we've made adjustments within our facilities and to our guidelines for use. This means things will look and feel a little different. When you come back to the Y, this is what you can expect:


WHAT THE Y IS DOING

Entry

Single Entry/Exit

To help us maintain our safety protocols, we will maintain a single entry/exit point at all YMCA locations.

Entry

Regular Temperature Checks & Health Screenings

Both staff and members will receive temperature checks and health screenings before being allowed to start their work shift or to check in.

Entry

PPE for All Staff

All staff, except those in positions where this is not appropriate (i.e. lifeguards, group fitness instructors, etc.) will be required to wear masks and other personal protective equipment.

Entry

Self-Scan

Members will be asked to scan their own membership card to allow for limited contact entry. Download your membership card on our mobile app for added convenience. 

Entry

Regular Cleaning & Disinfecting

A continuous scheduled disinfection every thirty minutes will occur of all high-touch surface areas in addition to cleaning equipment and our facilities with greater frequency throughout the day. A third-party cleaning service will fog each of our facilities several times a week.

Entry

Designed for Social Distance

All open areas inside the Y have been evaluated and redesigned where necessary to help ensure social distancing between members. Signage will be placed prominently throughout the facility to drive awareness of this requirement.


HOW WE'RE ASKING MEMBERS TO HELP MAINTAIN SAFETY

The YMCA appreciates members’ adherence to the following safety precautions during their visits:

Fever Icon

Stay Home if You're Sick

Members should stay home if they don’t feel well. The CDC and state public health officials encourage seniors and members of vulnerable populations, including those with underlying health conditions, to stay at home.

Fever Icon

Temperature Checks

All members will have their temperature checked prior to check in. We will also ask you several health screening questions before you can enter the facility. 

Mask Icon

Keep the Children at Home

We are unable to provide KidZone service at this time and recommend you not bring children and other family members under the age of 11.

Mask Icon

Bring a Towel, a Mask, a Mat and a Water Bottle

Members will be asked to bring their own water bottle, workout towel (towel services will not be provided), and a mat, if needed. The Y also requests that members bring a mask, as they are highly encouraged to be worn in the lobby and common areas where other members are present.

6 ft Icon

Keep Your Distance

Please exercise on designated equipment only and respect all signage regarding social distancing. Maintain at least six feet between you and others whenever possible.

Capacity Icon

Expect Reduced Capacity

To ensure proper social distancing, our wellness areas will have a limited capacity. At times of full capacity, you may be asked to wait until space is available, if necessary.

Wipe Down Icon

Remember to Wipe Down Equipment

Please help us reduce the risk of exposure by wiping down all equipment, weights, etc. with the provided cleaning materials before and after use. We will have easy, readily available disinfectant spray available for use. Hand-sanitizing stations for you to use are conveniently located throughout the facilities.
