NEW COVID-19 GUIDELINES

With the worst behind us, and brighter futures ahead, we are hopeful about the possibilities for the summer of 2021 and the end of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

In collaboration with The Alliance of Massachusetts YMCAs & local governments, we are releasing our re-opening plans related to the Commonwealth’s easing of restrictions starting on May 29th.

Highlights:

  • General Updates
    • Face coverings are not required for fully vaccinated individuals.(See below for Early Education & Camp)
    • Non-vaccinated individuals are advised to continue wearing face coverings and to continue 6ft. social distancing.  
    • We will continue to maintain CDC cleaning & hygiene protocols.
    • YMCA facility hours will remain the same until further notice.
    • Members should still stay home if you are feeling sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, and get tested. 
    • If you have a pre existing condition or are taking medications that weaken your immune system, you may NOT be fully protected even if you are fully vaccinated. Talk to your healthcare provider. Even after vaccination, you may need to continue taking all precautions.
  • Healthy Living
    • Most program & facility restrictions are lifting effective May 29.
    • Facility capacity returns to 100% (wellness center, aquatics, lockers, etc.).
    • Social distancing signage, most equipment placement, and protective barriers will remain in place until further notice.
    • Group exercise will remain at max registration of 18
    • Group cycling will increase to a max registration of 12 until further notice.
    • Aqua fitness will increase to a max registration of 15 in the small pool and 20 in the large pool.
    • Chronic disease programming will be returning in phases through the fall of 2021.
  • Locker Rooms
    • Locker rooms and showers will return to normal use including use of hair dryers.
  • Early Education / Camp
    • Face coverings are required indoors for staff and children in EEC licensed early education/DPH licensed Camp. 
    • Reduced square footage requirements remain in place @ 42 sq. ft./child for EEC licensed early education classrooms.
    • Allow for the sharing of objects in classrooms.
While the CDC is no longer requiring face coverings for vaccinated people, everyone has a different comfort level. Some staff and/or members may still choose to wear a face covering. Please remember to practice and promote understanding and respect in the Y community.
“Mutual respect is the foundation of genuine harmony.”
-Dalai Lama

We thank you for staying with us through this public health crisis and for your patience and resilience over the last 14 months! We made it through TOGETHER!
