Next Steps 3

Facilities are limited to Johnson County Family YMCA members and Johnson County residents only at this time.

On Wednesday, August 12th, the Governor of Wyoming and State Health Officer released the 10th continuation of the State Health Orders. The one relevant to your Y can be found here.

As no changes were made from the 9th to the 10th, things will remain as they have been operating below.

The 10th continuation goes into effect Saturday, August 16th and will be in effect until Monday, August 31st.


Building Operations | Unchanged

Building Hours

Weekday: 5:00 am – 7:00 pm
Saturday: Closed
Sunday: Closed

Weekday hours have been extended in both the morning and evening.
We will be closed on Saturdays until further notice.

This change on Saturday has been prompted by two facts:

  • Low usage numbers on Saturdays since reopening.
  • The continued requirement of dedicated staff to wipe down equipment in between individuals. It has been hard to justify additional staff with low usage.

We will look to reopen on Saturdays when the dedicated staff requirement has been lifted and interest resumes.

All other building restrictions remain in effect from the last Health Order.

individuals 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 users 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.

Individuals

Individuals will 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 an individual 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 individual will be directed to wait until a specified time at which the area becomes available.

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

If an individual 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.

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 individuals 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.
