IT IS TIME! We will be resuming some of our offerings in compliance with State of Illinois Phase 3 requirements on Friday, May 29. Please understand we are following the guidelines set by Governor Pritzker as to when we can open and what we can offer in each stage. In State of Illinois Phase 3, gyms can provide one-on-one training and limited participant outdoor group exercise. As our region moves into State of Illinois Phase 4, more programs and facility access will be available.
Please be assured that the safety of all our members, program participants, and staff is our number one priority. We have followed guidance from the CDC, local health agencies and public officials to update our policies, practices, and procedures. This will ensure we are providing the highest standards of cleanliness and make appropriate accommodations for physical/social distancing.Opening our facilities with care helps us all stay safe and protected while getting back to what matters most: our health, our family and friends, and our community.
The following outlines the stepped/staged opening of the YMCA facilities, services, and programs. Each step outlines expectations, policies and procedures for people, facilities, programs, and activities and provides a summary of each COVID transmission prevention measure that will be implemented in each step/stage. The Y will not move into subsequent steps/stages of this plan until we find the safety protocols to be successful and its members to be cooperative in adhering to physical distancing guidelines.
