The Y is open. Below are some answers to our frequently asked questions as well as some of the resources we are providing to our members.
Q: “Are YMCA Members required to wear masks?”
A: “Governor Holcomb has moved Indiana from a “mask order” to a “mask advisory” starting April 6, 2021. We strongly recommend all members and guests wear a mask when not working out. If one of our County Health Departments asks us to do something different, we will follow their recommendation in that county’s location. Our staff will continue to wear masks. We expect everyone to treat each other with respect and understanding as the guidelines change.
Please note: LIVE Virtual and On-Demand Classes are included in your membership and are available for your convenience. More classes are being added, so please check back regularly to find your new favorite!
For your safety, we continue to conduct extra cleaning every day throughout YMCA's.
By working together and keeping the Y safe, we hope to remain open despite the increase in positive cases recently.
Q: “Will the hours of the building and class schedule be different?”
A: “We will continue to add classes and revisit our hours of operation as we get busier. Please check our website and app for the most recent class and schedule changes.”
Q: “What additional cleaning is the Y doing? With what and how?”
A: “Additional staff continue to clean and sanitize equipment, locker rooms and shared spaces. The hospital grade disinfectants currently used throughout the facilities kill the Coronavirus. Every night, a professional cleaning company or trained Y staff conduct nightly deep cleaning and sanitizing.”
Q: “Why are the gymnasiums available by reservation only?”
A: “Currently gymnasiums are only available for open use by reservation to limit physical contact and encourage social distancing. Please check at the Member Service Desk for details. We are planning to open the gymnasiums up for drop-in use in the coming weeks.”
Q: “Is the pool safe?”
A: “Our pools and splash parks are carefully maintained and are disinfected with chlorine and/or bromine. Everyone should continue to protect themselves and others in and out of the water by practicing social distancing and good hand hygiene.”
Q: “Are youth programs open?”
A: “All youth programs including Childwatch are available. Please check our website or at the front desk for details. We will continue to follow recommendations by national, state and local sources.”
Q: “What does social distancing look like in the locker room?”
A: “Please social distance as much as possible. We are asking all members to bring a lock and utilize every 4th locker to help space people out. We appreciate your patience if the locker room is busy.”
Q: “What is expected at the YMCA during this time?”
A: “People not from the same household are asked to continue to practice social distancing. We strongly recommend and would appreciate all wearing a mask whenever possible. Masks do not have to be worn during your workout. Please wipe all equipment as well as spray bottles before and after each use (treadmills, weights, etc.) Please practice the 3 C’s of cover, clean and contain. Please stay home if you are sick or may have been exposed to COVID-19. Grace, understanding and respect to all those that are sharing this YMCA is appreciated.”
Q: “Are there other areas in the Y that will not be available? Why?”
A: “We are working hard to safely reopen all remaining amenities in the coming weeks. Please check our website for updates.”
