TIMING IS EVERYTHING! Messages Crossed in the Air.
To Our Wonderful Members, Participants and Community Friends,
Earlier today, we sent out an email reminding everyone of our June 1st Re-Opening. Unfortunately, our email crossed in the air with the new announcement made today by the Mills Administration:
“Administration is also delaying the full reopening of gyms and fitness centers, originally scheduled for June 1 (Stage 2), in light of new studies raising concerns about the transmission of the virus in such settings due to large numbers of people in relatively small spaces with moist, warm atmospheres coupled with turbulent air flow generated by intense physical exercise. Gyms and fitness centers are currently allowed to conduct outside classes of less than 10 participants and one-on-one instruction inside.”
For the safety of our Members, Staff, and Community, we will be delaying the reopening of our YMCA. A new reopening date will be announced when we have more information from the Governor’s Office. Our YMCA staff will continue to prepare for your return and we will continue to follow all CDC guidelines and YMCA best practices to ensure that our Y is safe for all when we are able to reopen.
We miss you all and are counting down the days until we get to be together again at our Y!
