Reminder of our Health protocols and policies...

  • Masks are required except while exercising & for children 9 & younger.
  • We're continuing to ask all members to perform self-screening before entering the building. You can read the screening requirements here.
  • Members are asked to remain 6 feet from others unless you are spotting someone. Thank you for your cooperation.
  • We're closed for cleaning Monday through Friday 2:15-3:30 pm.
  • Please remember to scan out when you leave the building. We have a scanner just prior to the Wellness Center exit and another scanner in the lobby.
  • After using equipment for your workout, please spray the provided towel with cleaner & then wipe the equipment. This is better for the equipment & better for sanitizing than spraying the equipment & wiping off the sanitizer.
  • Locker rooms are open for use as restrooms & to change clothes.
  • Showers are open Monday through Friday from 5:00 am - 2:00 pm.
  • No use of lockers.
  • We've removed the adult & youth designation of the locker rooms for the summer. People of all ages may use either locker room.
  • We are disinfecting locker rooms every 2 hours. While we are disinfecting, the locker room may be closed. If the door is locked or sign posted that it's closed; members will need to use the other locker room.
  • We have a deck shower on the 8 Lane Pool deck for swimmers to rinse off before & after swimming.
  • We have a new member waiver for all adult members to sign. You can sign it electronically before your first visit to the Y. Link to YMCA Electronic Signature Page
