The Y will continue to limit Wellness Center to 25% capacity. If the Wellness Center is at this capacity, members entering the building will be asked to wait in a designated area until there is space available. Even though reservations are no longer needed, the Y continues to remain vigilant with the health and safety of staff and members and asks all members to continue to follow social distancing guidelines by staying 6 feet apart from others; to wear their masks at all times when in the YMCA building, and to wipe down their machines before and after each use. These policies will be enforced by the YMCA staff team.

Updated guidelines have been posted.

Time slots for peak hours in the Wellness Center will be posted thirteen (13) days out. Before your first visit, you will need to e-sign an updated membership Waiver and Code of Conduct. Click here to sign (you will need to enter the barcode number on your membership key tag and last name).

The YMCA has made many changes to the Wellness Center’s physical space and cleaning procedures with the health, safety and comfort of members and staff in mind. To schedule a visit prior to using the Wellness Center to see the modifications, contact Jennifer Donahue at
