Based on the May 13, 2021 guidance provided by the CDC regarding the removal of facemasks and social distancing for fully vaccinated individuals, we have evaluated our existing safety precautions across all programs.
CDC defines “fully vaccinated” as 2 weeks after your second dose in a 2-dose vaccine, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Here are the updates to our current COVID-19 Policies that will become effective on Thursday, July 1st:
1. Face Coverings: Fully vaccinated members, guests, and employees will no longer be required to wear a facial covering while at the YMCA. If you are not fully vaccinated we encourage you to continue wearing a mask while in the common areas of the YMCA (entering and leaving the building, locker rooms, and hallways). Parents are required to wear a mask while inside the preschool to pick up and drop off their children.
2. Health Screenings: We will no longer conduct health screening for members and guests entering the YMCA. We encourage all member to take a day off from their workout routine should they not be feeling well or experience COVID-19 symptoms. We will excited to serve you once you are feeling better.
3. Group Exercise Capacity: We are no longer be taking reservations for group exercises classes at the front desk. A few classes will continue to have reservation protocols based upon capacity restrictions and equipment needs.
