Awareness & Prevention of Covid-19

March 13, 2020

We understand the growing concern surrounding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and want to assure you that we are following all recommended protocols to minimize the risk to all our members and staff. Our cleaning procedures have been reviewed and enhanced in light of the situation and all relevant products have tested effective in killing the virus. We have also provided our facilities with extra hand-sanitizing stations and tissues to encourage use of proper hygiene.

As we continue to do all we can, we ask that you follow the CDC recommended steps to keep everyone healthy and safe. Below is a list of how you can continue to help us:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Follow any program specific guidelines posted in the facility, including use of the disinfecting spray provided in the fitness center to wipe down equipment before and after use.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle through proper hydration, diet, rest and exercise.

We encourage everyone to stay educated on the latest news regarding this matter.  Please refer to the CDC website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for the most up to date information.

As always, please feel free to ask if you have any questions regarding this matter or anything else regarding your experience at the YMCA. 

Thank you for your continued support and stay healthy.
