Keeping your YMCA Clean, Safe, and Enjoyable

We all play an important role in promoting Healthy Living and preventing the spread of germs.

At the Y, one of our areas of focus is Healthy Living, and maintaining a healthier lifestyle includes keeping a clean environment. We’re following best practices to help ensure that everyone visiting our family centers experiences a clean, safe environment.

What to Expect from the Y

  • All YMCA staff wear face masks or coverings and gloves in areas of our family centers where appropriate.
  • All staff members undergo a temperature check upon entering the facility.
  • Our exercise equipment is organized in a way that allows members to maintain physical distancing during a workout.
  • Stations for members to clean their hands are placed throughout our family centers for regular use.
  • Limited areas of our family centers will remain closed for member and staff safety.
  • Equipment, areas, and other surfaces are regularly cleaned and disinfected during operational hours.
