WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE ymca

We were thrilled when the Governor announced in late June that we are allowed to be opened. We welcome you and your family back! Please stay tuned to our Facebook pages, our website, and email for more information.

We actively maintain our Ys by adding significant signage, temporarily closing high touch areas, doing deep cleaning, and moving equipment and furniture to promote social distancing.

We have fully implemented, trained for, and inspected all safety and health precautions both as required by the state and local health departments, as well as to meet our own very high Y standards. This includes rigorous training of Y staff to ensure they are fully prepared to welcome members back in a manner consistent with our many new health and safety protocols. 

We have heard from a number of members who have concerns about the risks of exposure while exercising indoors, particularly as the number of COVID cases increase in Maryland and across the Eastern Shore. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution and consideration for these members, we are adding additional health and safety precautions.

ALL YMCA of the Chesapeake locations designate a 2-hour window of time in which EVERYONE will be required to wear a mask while in the wellness centers and weight rooms. During the hours it is required to keep the mask on while working out.

Please contact your branch, check the YMCA of the Chesapeake App, or the branch's Facebook page for updates.
