We hold the health and wellness of our staff and members as our highest priority. We recognize that this “new normal” will be less than ideal, but we will continue to work with county, state, and national entities to ensure we are able to provide the safest environment for all that choose to use the Y.
We will update you as new information becomes available and as additional Y services are once again eligible to be brought back online.
