face coverings copy
As of August 1, 2020, face coverings (non-medical masks) are mandatory inside all YMCA facilities and offices. All members, program participants, staff and volunteers must wear a mask at all times while in common areas inside all YMCA facilities such as lobbies, hallways and change rooms. Members who enter a YMCA facility without a mask will be asked to wear one. A limited supply of face masks will be available at your YMCA health, fitness and aquatic centre should you forget one.
A face covering includes a mask, balaclava, bandana, scarf, cloth or other similar items that cover the nose, mouth and chin without gapping. Exceptions include children under two years of age, persons with an underlying medical condition or disability which inhibits their ability to wear a face covering, or while participating in physical activity.
Please note that anyone participating in water or physical activities are exempt. Also, if relevant to you, Melcor YMCA Village residents are exempt from this policy as this facility has separate guidelines and extensive health and safety protocols in place that are specific to those spaces.
Thank you for helping keep YMCA spaces healthy and safe for everyone to enjoy.
