Stay Connected to Your Y Community

A Message on Reopening Ys

As communities around the country adjust physical distancing regulations, Ys are considering a number of factors to determine when it is appropriate to reopen their doors. The health and safety of members and staff will be the primary considerations in their planning. Each Y will refer to local conditions and guidelines from health officials to determine the best time to open and which services will be safe to offer.
