What to Expect

COVID Safety Protocols

Effective June 1, face masks are no longer required for those visiting the Y or participating in Y programs. We fully support individuals who wish to continue wearing masks, at their discretion, and strongly encourage those who have not been fully vaccinated to continue wearing masks to safeguard themselves and others. 

Staff who work with children under 12 during indoor sports and activities will wear face masks to help protect those too young to be vaccinated. Children are not required to wear masks during Y programs. 

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, have experienced new or worsening symptoms of COVID-19, or are an unvaccinated individual who has had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you refrain from coming to the Y for the recommended quarantine period. Thank you for helping keep our community safe!


  • Members may not bring outside food or drink into the facility, with the exception of water.
  • Towels are not provided, so please bring your own towel from home.
