COVID-19 Update July 2, 2020
Welcome Back!
We are so excited to share that we will begin PHASE 2 of our reopening process!

Phase 2 is planned to begin on Wednesday, July 8.

We continue to gradually reopen our spaces while still maintaining healthy physical distancing, providing ample places to sanitize, and offer significant disinfecting of equipment by Y members and staff throughout the day.
PHASE 2 Hours will remain the same as in phase 1.

MONDAY-FRIDAY 6:00am-1:00pm, 2:00pm-7:00pm.

Following guidance from the State of Minnesota, the FF YMCA is able to open at 25% of capacity. At this time, we will be able to welcome 45 members checked into the Y at one time.
