MASK MANDATE CHANGES

 

Dear members,

Our YMCA has adhered to the state’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts throughout the pandemic and will continue to do so. As a result of today’s new guidance by the CDC and an updated mask mandate from the state, fully vaccinated people do not have to mask inside facilities like our YMCA. Those who are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated (two weeks past their full vaccine dosage) must mask when inside the YMCA. Based on this guidance, all children 15 and under still must mask when inside of the Y. Children aged 12-15 can go maskless two weeks after receiving their second vaccine shot.

We are seeking clarification for child care staff and parents entering child care spaces and ask that parents and staff in our child care centers continue to mask while we determine whether state licensing regulations will reflect these changes.

Thank you for your patience while we update our policies to reflect the latest information from the state Health Department. 

Sincerely,

Trish Hooper, CEO
