YMCA Opening Guidelines

what to expect at your ymca right now

  • According to updated CDC guidance released on May 13, if you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing. Beginning Monday, May 17, staff who are fully vaccinated won’t be required to wear a mask. In addition, we will no longer encourage or enforce mask-wearing among members. We encourage every staff member and Y member to take responsibility for their own health and make appropriate individual decisions. The CDC considers people fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series (Pfizer or Moderna) or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson). There is no requirement for people to provide evidence of vaccination.
  • We have increased handwashing supplies and hand sanitizer stations and strongly encourage members to frequently and thoroughly wash and clean your hands.
  • We have re-arranged equipment and space to allow for CDC-recommended social distancing and expect all members to maintain a six-foot distance from other members while using the Y.
  • The dry sauna and steam room are open at the Bear Levin Studer Y with capacity limits.
  • Basketball is available on a limited basis at both branches when no other program or class is scheduled.
  • We are not offering a coffee service at either branch.
  • If you are a former member who canceled at any time since March 1, 2020, for any reason, we will waive your Joiner's Fee if you return by June 30, 2021.
  • Swim lessons (group and private) continue at the Bear Levin Studer Y and will resume at the Pullum Y in June.
