Masks at the Y: Effective May 17, 2021

Effective Monday, May 17, 2021, Monroe County rescinded the COVID-19 Health Order, which means face coverings are no longer required and gathering limits are removed. You can read the full announcement regarding the Monroe County Health Department’s decision to rescind the mask mandate at www.co.monroe.in.us. The CDC also recently released new guidelines for vaccinated individuals announcing they can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing.
