WHY REOPENING IN MULTIPLE PHASES?
The YMCA of Greater Rochester is reopening safely and slowly, and in a financially responsible way. To do that, we have decided to take a phased approach when it comes to reopening.
We are also basing our phased reopening decision on guidance we have received from the New York State Department of Health. The NYSDOH has encouraged all health and fitness facilities to implement a phase-in reopening of activities to allow for operational issues to be resolved before certain activities return to levels experienced prior to closure. That includes limiting hours of operation and member usage during those hours, providing the Y the ability to adjust to changes, and update procedures as necessary.
Reopening decisions were made with many factors in mind, including efforts to be accessible in a wide geographical footprint throughout our service area.
