COVID-19 Update (06/09/2021)

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 Wednesday, June 9th: 

 

  1. Employees:  We are still requiring all employees to continue wearing a mask or facial covering while at work. 

 

  1. Members:  Fully vaccinated members and guests will not be required to wear a facial covering while at the YMCA.  Members or guests who are not fully vaccinated are encouraged to continue wearing a mask while in the common areas of the YMCA (entering and leaving the building, locker rooms, and hallways). Parents picking up and dropping off at the preschool are required to wear a facial covering regardless of vaccination status. 

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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. 

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

During this time we’re asking that you stay with us, not as a fitness facility member but as a cause-driven member. We need you to stick with the Y. We need your help by remaining a member so that the Y can continue to keep our promise to the community and step up into the spaces where we can provide meaningful contributions during these uncertain and difficult times.

Thank you for being a member now and in the future and we look forward to us all coming back together to Our Y to do the things we love for the community we love. The YMCA is a non-profit organization that is much more than a gym. When this virus is contained, we look forward to serving you and your family to our full potential once again. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about our Y’s response, please reach out to us at info@ymcapalmbeaches.org.
