As we move from phase to phase we realize there will be a lot of questions. We have compiled a number of frequently asked questions and answers for you. We appreciate your patience as guidelines change frequently and we will have to adjust as we receive the information.

When do I have to wear a mask? 

The CDC has announced that fully vaccinated people can resume activities without masks.

  • At the YMCA, vaccinated people - staff and members – may engage in all activities at the Y without a mask. 
  • People who are not fully vaccinated are asked to continue wearing masks. 
  • If you feel uncomfortable without a mask or prefer to wear a mask for any reason, you may continue to wear one while working out even if fully vaccinated. 
  • Social distancing is still requested by all staff and members.


Will everything be the same as when you closed?

Yes and no.

  • Reservations are required for both pools, courts, indoor cycling classes and the climbing wall.


Why are some services not available?

Some services, like towel services, have been suspended to keep members and staff healthy. Suspending these services avoids high contact areas and contact with garments or towels that could contain germs. Please bring your own towel, mat and water bottle.


What is the YMCA doing to keep staff & members safe?

The YMCA has put in place measures to keep staff and members safe:

  • At the YMCA, vaccinated people - staff and members – may engage in all activities at the Y without a mask.
  • Additional hand sanitization stations have been placed throughout the building.
  • Members must wipe down and sanitize BEFORE AND AFTER using any equipment.
  • Equipment has been spread out and cardio equipment availability has reduced to allowed for distancing. Signage is on the equipment and floors, to ensure social distancing.
  • Protective plastic sheeting is in place at our Welcome Desk and minimum hand to hand transactions are encouraged.


How do I reserve a spot if I don’t have access to internet?

Please call the YMCA Welcome Desk, 360-733-8630, and they will help get a reservation set up.
