WORKING TOGETHER FOR A SAFE ENVIRONMENT
Based on guidelines and recommendations put forth by the CDC, as well as local and national health officials, we will observe the following in our YMCA centers:
MASKS: Masks are required for individuals age 10+ in common areas, locker rooms, hallways and when an individual is not engaged in indoor exercise as well as for youth ages 10+ in Child Watch, Y Learning Centers and Day/Holiday Camp programs. Masks will not be required while a member is actively engaged in exercise.
Masks will not be required when members or participants are on an outdoor pool deck or outdoor sport fields.
Staff are required to wear face masks while serving members or interacting with others unless teaching a group exercise class or lifeguarding.
Members who are at an increased risk as outlined by the CDC, as well as those who feel more comfortable wearing a mask are encouraged to do so. We ask that all members and guests continue to practice social or physical distancing and stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people who are not from their household in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
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 72 hours in advance.
TEMPERATURE CHECKS: Temperature checks will be required in our Y Learning Centers and Day/Holiday Camp programs. YMCA After School Child Care will follow all school district guidelines.
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. 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.
