Monroe County Mask Mandate in Effect August 5, 2021
As we slowly re-open our facilities and programs throughout the ongoing pandemic, we rely on direction from the Monroe County Health Department, Y-USA, Indiana Alliance of YMCAs, neighboring YMCAs, and other community constituents. Per the Health Order issued by the Monroe County Health Department on August 5, 2021, all Y members, guests, and staff are required to wear a face mask, shield, or covering while using the Y facilities regardless of vaccination status. In order to continue to protect the health and well-being of our staff and members, we have additional policies that will be enforced at the Y.
We deeply appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate the challenging circumstances related to COVID-19. We are all operating in unknown territory right now, and we are working as quickly as we can to keep you updated and address your questions. We will continue to assess the current COVID-19 situation and determine next steps as information unfolds. We will continue to provide details on our website, social media, and through email as the situation changes.

Please review our programming and facility updates prior to returning to the Y for the first time. We can't wait to welcome you back!
Help Maintain a Healthy Environment
Let's work together to keep the Y healthy and safe for everyone! As we slowly re-open our facilities, we have been working hard to establish policies in order to maintain a healthy environment for our staff and members. In order to keep the facilities open, it is critical for you to follow these policies.
Masks at the Y
Based on directives from the CDC and Monroe County officials released in July and August of 2021, our Monroe County Y requires masks for our Y members, staff, and guests. Please review our complete requirements on our website to help you prepare for your visit to the Y.
Community Response and Support
We’re continuing to serve our community in an effort to support those affected by COVID-19. In times like these, it’s critical that we work together as a community to lift those most impacted by health and economic challenges.
As a member, you’ve seen our commitment to our mission and building community. Thank you to those who stayed with us as we responded to the Indiana Stay-at-Home Order. As a thank you for maintaining an active membership while we remained closed from March 17-June 1, 2020, we offered up to $75 in programming credits.
