We’ve missed seeing you at the Y! Because of you, the members and donors who stood with us, the Y continued to serve others during the quarantine. Your Y served 16,000 meals to children and seniors both in our care and in food deserts, and served more than 100 healthcare families and critical infrastructure staff through pandemic childcare centers.
We are prepared to welcome you to the YMCA when you are ready to come back. You can be here safe in the knowledge that we never stopped caring for
kids during the pandemic shut down and as we have re-opened our buildings and services, we have continued our frequent, vigilant cleaning and sanitizing efforts.
Our Y will be implementing the following protocols for all members. Please familiarize yourself with these new policies so that we can all enjoy a safe place at the Y.
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Expect Social Distancing
All members and staff will be required to practice social distancing while inside the YMCA. In some cases, the availability of equipment, features and spaces will be limited to ensure members are able to maintain the recommended 6 ft of separation. Signage has been placed throughout the building to assist you in maintaining safe distances.
Protection for All
In an effort to protect everyone, and to follow the mandates set by Governor Mike DeWine, we are requiring members and staff to wear masks in common areas. While working out, masks are optional. In addition, we have increased our cleaning and we hope you do the same, please sanitize the equipment before and after each use.
Safety Comes First
To ensure the safety of our staff, members and community, individuals entering the YMCA will be required to have their temperature taken by a YMCA employee and may be refused admittance if running a fever.
Expect Reduced Capacity
To ensure proper social distancing, our wellness areas will have a limited capacity. At times of full capacity, you will be asked to wait in a designated area until space is available.
