  • This includes all members; program participants in sports, Adventure Zone and any other programs conducted inside our YMCAs; and our staff.
  • Individuals who are in the pool and actively engaged in pool activity will be exempt from wearing a mask. A mask will be required going to and from the pool.
  • Masks are required in the saunas, not the steam rooms.
