YMCA Announces Re-Opening Date

Following the statewide Phase 2 guidelines for fitness facilities, The Staunton-Augusta Family YMCA plans to re-open its doors on Friday, June 26th.
In order to follow the spacing guidelines and people-per-facility ratio, the YMCA will use online sign-up sheets which can be accessed from the YMCA website.  It’s one of many changes the YMCA is making temporarily to  adhere to the Phase 2 guidelines.
The YMCA will be announcing those changes this week leading up the re-opening.
“We still need to proceed with caution, but it feels good to open the doors back up,” Staunton-Augusta Family YMCA executive director Josh Cole said.
The YMCA’s original plan was re-open on June 12th, a week after a Phase 2 guidelines allowed fitness facilities to re-open. While preparing for re-opening, three YMCA staff members tested positive for the coronavirus.
Health privacy laws restricts releasing the names of the staff members.
The YMCA suspended all activity for two weeks in order to have the building cleaned thoroughly and to evaluate June 26thas a re-opening date.
“Our first commitment is to the safety of our staff and members,” Cole said.
After complying with all the recommendations made by the Central Shenandoah Health District, the YMCA will open its doors for the first time since March 13th.  Starting back in April, the YMCA froze membership dues, except for members who willingly opted in to help the YMCA financially. Those dues will remain frozen in June.
