MANDATORY FACE COVERING POLICY
Effective Monday, Nov 23rd, 2020
Due to the uptick in COVID-19 infections in Ohio and across the country, the Akron Area YMCA is taking additional measures to ensure our members, staff and community stay healthy and safe. (see updated staff policy) (see member FAQ)
Beginning Monday, November 23, 2020, all staff and participants school-age (6+) entering our facilities will be required to wear a face covering (covering mouth, nose, and below the chin) at all times, including during active exercise and program participation except when:
- Actively participating in the pool;
- Actively playing in Youth Sports and youth gross motor activity programs; or
- In the shower.
For our fitness facilities, this means that masks are now required in group exercise classes and in the workout areas, even when 6 feet distancing can be maintained. Members who are in the pool or in the shower may remove their mask but will need to replace the mask when they are no longer in the pool or shower.
School-age youth participating in sports program do not have to wear a face covering while actively participating.
