We’re happy to announce that our Maquoketa YMCA will begin a “soft” reopening on Monday, May 4.

Our Scott County YMCAs will begin the gradual return to services when authorized by Governor Reynolds.

The safety of our members, staff and participants will be a top priority as we develop processes based on the CDC, State, and County Health Department guidelines.

The following information is what we know at this time :

Prohibited Services we will NOT provide initially per guidelines and mandates:
• Group Exercise Classes
• Pools, Steam Rooms, and Saunas
• Racquetball Courts
• Pick-Up Basketball
• Child Watch
• Rental Groups, Parties, and Private Events 

We are grateful for the outpouring of support we have received during this difficult time. Our members and donors have enabled our Child Care Team to continue providing services for essential working families, and has allowed our Outreach Team to visit and ensure the safety of our at-risk teenagers and seniors. 

Our full-time staff has prepared the facilities by sanitizing and disinfecting, re-grouting tile and painting pool areas, and re-arranging equipment to ensure social distancing. We have also purchased new sanitizing fogger machines.

And, we have more good news!

Our staff was also able to secure funding that will provide 90-day “Bridge Memberships” to help those whose jobs are still unavailable after the Governor lifts restrictions.

Therefore, to qualify, you must meet two criteria:

1) You were an active member on March 1 st and, 2) when the Governor permits businesses to re-open your job is still unavailable, we will help.   

Thank you for being a part of our YMCA Family.

Stay Safe! And we’ll see you soon!
