We’ve missed you at the Y!

As we continue to reopen additional programs and activities, rest assured that your safety as well as the safety of our staff is our number one priority. We are implementing the following protocols for all members, and per the Governor's mandate masks will be required at the Y starting at 6:00pm on July 23, 2020. Please watch this video  and familiarize yourself with our new policies so that we can all enjoy a safe place at the Y. 

Answers to your frequently asked questions

If you maintained your membership with us throughout the pandemic closing of our fitness facilities, you don’t need to do anything to reactivate your membership. As long as you have your membership card or the MDOC app on your smartphone, you will be able to scan in on opening day!

If you cancelled your membership, but would like to reactivate, please email  membership@ymcastaff.org and our Welcome Center staff will reactivate your membership for you. There’s no need for you to come in, as the reactivation can be done online and by communicating via email. We want this process to be simple, safe and streamlined.

If you arrive at the Y before you reactivate your membership, you will be directed to the Welcome Center. If the Welcome Center is closed, you can still come in to exercise one time while we get your membership reactivated! To make your return to the Y simple, safe and streamlined we recommend reactivating your membership prior to your first time back to the Y.

Update: We've had some questions recently about our rejoiner fee policy. And based on member input, we've updated the policy. Any existing member who cancels their membership on or after March 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 can rejoin (or reinstate their membership) with no joiner fee from now through Dec. 31,2020.  If needed in December, the Y will re-evaluate this policy.

For this cleaner, you do not need to wipe the surface after spraying. Our housekeeping staff will also be disinfecting the showers.

In addition:  

  • The boys and girls locker rooms remain open, but without showers for now.

  • The outdoor pool restrooms are open, but those showers are still closed.

  • The lower level locker rooms are also still closed.

  • For now, saunas, steam room, and whirlpools in all locker rooms are still closed.


Do a healthy self-check before you leave home and stay home if you are ill or you have symptoms of COVID-19.

Come to the Y with a purpose. Come to work out, lap swim, or attend a specific program. Our lobby furniture and café tables have been temporarily removed to prevent gathering for socializing. 

Arrive no more than 10 minutes before your class or program begins.

Follow physical distancing
if you must stand in line before entering the Y.

Enter through the North Entrance
at Lebanon or the front Entrance at Landen. At Lebanon you will also exit through the North Entrance, but at Landen you will exit the facility through Studio A.  

Have your membership card or app ready to scan for a required check-in.

Sanitize your hands upon entry. Sanitizer will be available at the entry. 

Bring your own water bottle, pre-filled. Our water fountains and vending machines are closed.  

Bring your own towel. Our towel service is currently discontinued.

Restrooms and some locker rooms are open. Some showers are also available. 


We don’t expect you to wear a mask while you exercise, but for the health of others we encourage you to wear one in our public spaces and when you are interacting with staff. We encourage you to wear a mask as you check-in and walk the hallways, as you interact with staff, and as you exit the building. Personal masks must meet the dress code defined in the member handbook. They must be family friendly and should not have inappropriate content such as language or imagery that is vulgar, sexually explicit or otherwise offensive.  Management may enforce these standards at its discretion by asking members to remove any items considered to be inappropriate. 

Wash your hands or use our sanitizing stations often. Restrooms are open, and sanitizing stations will be available at entrances, in the Cardio Strength Center, on pool decks, and in any open studios. 

Participate in cleaning and disinfecting the equipment you use while at the Y. We ask that you spray down any equipment you use in the CSC or fitness studios. Our staff will then wipe the equipment. Rest assured your efforts are an addition to our cleaning protocols, which meet the guidelines from health experts and local officials.

If you are in a water fit class or swim lesson, when the class or lesson ends, you will place any YMCA equipment you use in a bin marked for disinfection.

Follow physical distancing if you are waiting for a class, equipment, or swim lap lane. Also maintain social distancing in any class. Partners exercising together and sharing equipment must maintain group segmentation from others exercising.

You’ll notice we have removed some equipment and reduced class sizes to meet the required social distance of six feet between members.
