The Southeast and Northwest Y branches re-opened June 1, 2020!
As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, we are slowly re-opening our facilities and programs based on the direction from the Monroe County Health Department, Y-USA, Indiana Alliance of YMCAs, neighboring YMCAs, and other community constituents. We are excited to announce our Southeast and Northwest Y facilities re-opened on Monday, June 1, 2020! In order to continue to protect the health and well-being of our staff and members, we released policies that will be enforced at the Y. We have several temporary updates to our programming and Southeast and Northwest Y facilities, which are outlined in our re-opening updates here.
Prior to returning to our facilities for the first time since we closed, please also make sure you review and sign our new Y Membership Agreement at one of our Welcome Centers.
We deeply appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate the challenging circumstances related to the Coronavirus. 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.
Monroe County Y Re-Opening Plans
We are excited to announce our Southeast and Northwest Y facilities re-opened on Monday, June 1, 2020! We want to be there for you and our community as we all recover from this pandemic, and the following updates will help us accomplish that as we take steps to slowly re-open. 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 mid-May of 2021, our Monroe County Y will no longer require masks for our Y members and staff, with one exception for youth program participants and staff. 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 the novel coronavirus (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 respond to COVID-19. As a thank you for maintaining an active membership while we remained closed, we offered up to $75 in programming credits.
Find a Virtual Workout, Youth Activity, or Healthy Living Exercise
Meet us in the Y’s Healthy Living Room. In an effort to make staying at home and social distancing as easy as possible, we've put together a variety of resources for you to refer to while at home. You'll find activities for preschool-aged children, at-home Group Ex classes, do-it-yourself tutorials, and more.
