COVID-19 Updates

Our YMCA is Open and Ready for You!

With the COVID-19 pandemic, our lives, our YMCA and the way we do things look different as we move forward. 

We have implemented systems in our YMCA to improve safety and sanitation, based on the government “Restoring Safe Services” guidelines. As we move to the next normal it will have an impact on our staff, volunteers, members and participants.
