Updated November 16th 

As we closely monitor the corona-virus pandemic and the role of the YMCA during this time, we strive to keep you informed about what YMCA resources are open to you.

This web page is intended to be closely monitored and updated throughout these uncertain times to give you up-to-the minute information about Y activities.

PHASE 5 : Moving Forward

Phase 5 Hours:
Monday-Friday 5:00 am – 9:00 pm
Saturday 7:00 am – 6:30 pm
Sunday 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm


Before You Leave Home:

  • Stay home if you don’t feel well.
  • CDC and state guidelines encourage seniors and other vulnerable populations to stay home.
  • Bring a towel and filled water bottle.
  • Kids ages 8 and up that are members or purchase a day pass are allowed in the building without a parent.
  • Effective 16 November 2020, we have asked all members, guests and vendors to wear a protective face mask while entering, moving about and exiting our facilities.  Masks should be worn at all times when interacting with other members.  During exercise events like machine or group fitness workouts, masks may be removed to allow for adequate breathing.
  • We have asked all members and guests to maintain a minimum of six feet spacing between themselves and other facility users.  This practice will be followed in all group fitness classes. In the circuit, country, gallery, free weight and cable rooms, participants should utilize every other machine or workout station to help maintain this social distance requirement.
  • For the time being, we have restricted pool access to a maximum of 20 people at any given time.  The pool area will be closed to members during the weekday and Saturday morning practice times of our Seacats Swim Team.  Our hot tub and saunas are now restricted to a maximum of two people in each area.  Members should minimize their time spent in these areas to allow other members their turn.
  • Effective 19 November 2020, we are asking all youth (under age 18) to wear protective face masks while moving about the YMCA and when participating in any YMCA activities. The objective of this mandate is to mirror as closely as possible the face mask criteria in place at our public schools.  We will now also require all youth who are on-site without an adult to be picked up from our facilities one full hour before the close of business each day; 8:00 pm on weekdays, 5:30 pm on Saturdays and 4:00 pm on Sundays.

What to Expect:

  • Enter through the main entrance.
  • We ask that all members wear a face mask while entering and leaving our facility.  You can remove your mask while you are working out or in a fitness class.
  • Members will be required to complete a COVID-19 waiver, (If you have not done so already.)
  • No-contact “self-scan” at check-in.
  • Social distancing required at all times.
  • Wipe down equipment before and after use.


Please keep in mind that as the COVID-19 situation moves forward we will continue to evolve with your health and safety as top priority:

  • All members must agree to sign a COVID-19 Waiver upon check-in.
  • Day passes, guest passes, or Nationwide members aged 8 and up will be allowed in the building
