Dear Lewisburg YMCA Members,
As you may have seen in the email sent to you Monday night, the Lewisburg YMCA at the Miller Center will begin scaling back operations beginning this Friday, November, 27, 2020. Please carefully read our new guidelines as they will affect Lewisburg YMCA members that use the fitness center and/or participate in Group Fitness classes.
- In-person Group Fitness classes are currently suspended and will only be offered virtually. A new schedule with instructions will be sent when ready.
- The Lewisburg YMCA remains open, but is limited to 20 people inside the facility at a time.
- Registration is now required to visit us. Time slots are 45 minutes in length and registration may be done in person, online, or by calling (570)556-4191.
- A new, more comprehensive screening process will begin Friday including temperature checks and required hand sanitization when entering the facility.
- Members are required to wear a mask at all times, including during their workout.
- Members will also continue to pick up a bottle of disinfectant and cloth to spray & wipe down equipment before and after each use.
Please review our FAQ to help with any questions you may have regarding our new operational procedure.
Q: How do I log into my YMCA account?
A: Go to gsvymca.org and click “My Account” in the upper, right hand corner. Enter your email address or phone number to locate your account and click “Submit”. Enter your password and click “Login” to log in to your YMCA account.
Q: What if I don’t know my password?
A: Go to gsvymca.org and click “My Account” in the upper, right hand corner. Enter your email address or phone number to locate your account and click “Submit”. On the next screen, click “Forgot your password” and follow the instructions.
Q: Why is there 15 minutes designated for cleaning every hour?
A: To ensure the highest level of safety of all members using the facility, the Environmental Services Team will be fully disinfecting all touchpoints in the fitness center each hour. The only way to truly perform a disinfection of the equipment is to have a totally empty space for a short period of time to allow for the EPA registered disinfectant to work effectively.
Q: Are walk-ins allowed?
A: Members may be permitted access to the facility as a walk-in during one of our designated appointment slots if there are openings. If all 20 member appointment slots are filled when the member wishes to walk-in, they will be denied access to the facility.
Q: What temperature is too high?
A: In addition to the two facility access screening questions that have become a standard for access to the facility, temperature checks will now be conducted on all who enter. Anyone who answers “no” to one of the facility access screening questions or has a temperature of 100.4⁰F or higher will be declined access.
Q: Will showers be available?
A: While we realize that the ability to use the showers in the locker rooms is a valuable feature of membership, showers will be closed during this time.
Q: Can I put my membership on hold?
A: Any member who wishes to place their membership on hold during this time may do so by emailing Wanda Miller, Membership Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Can I sign up for more than one time slot per day?
A: The maximum allowed number of 45-minute time slots per day is two (2). If they are back-to-back, you will still need to vacate the fitness center to allow our crew to disinfect.
Q: How far in advance may I sign up for a time slot?
A: Registration opens at 8 AM, two days prior to the day you wish to use. For example, if you want to use the gym on Wednesday at 2 PM, you will be able to sign up beginning at 8 AM two days before that, or 8 AM Monday morning.
Q: How early may I arrive for my time slot?
A: Members may arrive 15 minutes early to allow for time to be screened. Once you are successfully screened, please wait in our lobby area on one of the designated markers to ensure proper 6-foot social distancing.
Q: How long will this last?
A: While we do not have a definitive time frame on the implementation of these new procedures, we will reevaluate week to week to determine the best steps going forward.
We realize these new protocols may be inconvenient for some, and truly appreciate your understanding during this time. We are grateful for the opportunity to remain open to serve you, and sincerely thank you for your willingness to cooperate. Questions may be directed to Kyle Snyder or by calling (570)556-4191.
Please enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
The Lewisburg YMCA at the Miller Center
