Health Order Next Steps

On Wednesday, May 13th, the Governor of Wyoming and State Health Officer released the 4th continuation of the State Health Orders. The one relevant to gymnasiums can be found here.

As a result, we have modified our reopening plan.

The following will layout our modified reopening plan, which will go into effect on Monday, May 18th.

General Restrictions

Hours of Operation will remain the same.
Weekdays: 6:00 am – 6:30 pm

Sunday: Closed

Facilities remain limited to members only at this time.

Members will continue to go through a check in screening process before being allowed to use the facility.

Please arrive dressed in the appropriate attire for the desired activity as the locker rooms will be unavailable for all but restroom and sink facilities.

Pool patrons will need to bring a towel from home as Y towels will be unavailable. The deck showers will be available for rinsing off before and after pool use. This remains an important step in protecting the pool chemistry.

Personal Training is permitted. Trainers will wear a mask and ensure proper sanitation practices are utilized.

Bath towels and sweat towels will be unavailable at this time.

Equipment must be wiped down before and after use.

Equipment towels and disinfectant spray bottles will be available.

Staff will be present to ensure equipment is wiped down in between members and that cleaning supplies remain well-stocked.


Members will continue to be asked a small series of general health questions and to agree to some special policies put in place to determine facility entry eligibility, as mandated by the New Health Order.

If a member meets the eligibility criteria to enter, Front Desk staff will check to see if their desired workout area is available. If the area is at capacity, the member will be directed to wait until a specified time at which the area becomes available.

If a member is deemed ineligible to enter, they will kindly be asked to leave the Y.

If a member would like to change to a different area of the facility, they are required to check in with the Front Desk to determine if there is space available in the desired area.

Work out sessions are restricted to one (1) hour.
Staff will alert you when you are nearing the end of your session time.

Six (6) feet of distance must be maintained while working out.

Staff will be present to kindly remind members to create appropriate distancing if they observe patrons working out too close to one another. This is not only for the health and safety of everyone in the facility, but will also allow us to remain open and serving the community.

Y members are required to check out at the Front Desk upon departure.


Staff will continue to go through the same procedure as members.

If a staff person is deemed ineligible, they will not be allowed to work until they can meet the eligibility criteria.

Staff are required to check out at the Front Desk upon departure.

Staff will continue to wear masks if within six (6) feet of members or other staff.
