Face Coverings Inside the Y

To help protect our members and staff and to follow suit with Collier County’s mandatory mask ordinance, effective immediately, the YMCA will require all members entering our facilities to wear a face covering in all common areas indoors where other members are present and whenever you are walking to and from the area where you will be working out.

Masks do not have to be worn outside, during your workout or group exercise classes as long as social distancing guidelines are followed.

Although we encourage face coverings as an extra layer of protection, they are not required for children under the age of 18 in our camps, youth sports and childcare programs.

While we can’t predict the long-term effects of COVID-19, we are committed to doing whatever is necessary to ensure your safety.

The way we’ll interact with each other will be different, but at the Y, you’ll always be able to connect with people, improve your health and wellness, nurture your children’s potential and help strengthen our community.

Stay well and we’ll see you at the Y!

All updates are subject to change. Please continue to check back for the latest information.
