COVID-19 Precautions #StrongerTogether

Y Members, Welcome Back!

The Y is dedicated to the health and safety of our members, staff, and community. We also believe that exercise is a proven immunity-booster and that exercise as a part of a healthy lifestyle is vital to overall health and well-being. Additionally, we understand the mental and emotional dangers of social isolation. The Y aims to help members meet their physical, social, and emotional needs while also implementing doing all we can to offer a safe and healthy environment during these difficult circumstances. Under the guidance of the Governor, our County Health Department, and the CDC, guidelines for reopening will be as follows:
