Help Us All Stay Safe

Stay Home if You're Sick

 

Do not enter any YMCA space if you have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.

 

CDC and state guidelines also encourage seniors and other vulnerable populations to stay home.

Face Masks

 

Fully vaccinated?

If you are vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask unless you are in a child care or youth program/setting.

 

Not fully vaccinated yet?

If you are not vaccinated and age 5 or older, you must wear your mask. While exercising, if you are not able to maintain 10' of distance, you must wear your mask. Masks are strongly recommended for ages 2–4. Children under the age of 2 should not wear a mask.

Distancing

 

If you are not vaccinated, stay at least six feet away from others wherever possible and at least ten feet away when exercising, in fitness classes or in the pool. If you are unable to maintain 10' of distance while exercising, and you are not vaccinated, you must wear your mask.

Wipe Down Equipment
