At the Y, our priority is your health. We've taken extra steps and adapted our environment so you can return to meeting your goals safely.

To ensure our facilities meet the highest standards of hygiene and safety, we've implemented some new policies and procedures including face coverings, physical distancing, ramped-up cleaning, temperature checks, and more.
