Member Update: May 6, 2020
As you may know, fitness facilities in Texas have been authorized to open as early as Monday, May 18. We are carefully considering every aspect of our operations in order to determine when and how we can reopen Y facilities, while also ensuring your safety. We promise to stay in touch and communicate those plans with you well in advance.
Thank you for staying with us and supporting the Y during this critical time. We appreciate your patience and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
To our Y family:
The health of our members, staff, guests, volunteers and community is our mission. We have communicated with you throughout the past weeks that as a community service organization, the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth would continue to serve our community to the best of our ability so long as we do not put the health and wellness of our staff, guests and members and the community at risk.
Given the closing orders issued by the City of Fort Worth, all branches of the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth will temporarily close starting today, March 18, 2020 at 6 P.M. As of now, our two Early Childhood Learning Centers will remain open.
During this unprecedented time, we know it’s more important than ever to support our community in every way we can. In our history, we always step up when there is need and we will continue to do so going forward. We are working to determine how we can support our community members during this difficult time.
We recognize that these actions are necessary to help prevent the spread of this virus. We also know that the programs we run are important for our members and participants, and they contribute to making the community a better place. We at the Y are also facing the challenge of doing what we can for our staff by providing benefits continuation to assure that they can afford to keep themselves and their families safe during this health crisis. Therefore, if it is at all possible for you, we ask that you please continue your Y membership and program enrollment. We, as a community, will get through this. And when we do, we want to be in the best shape to support you and your family.
Staying active and maintaining connections is vital. Even though our branches are temporarily closed, we can still continue to do this safely. To support your health, you are encouraged to access the virtual options below, which come at no additional cost:
• Y360 Virtual Group Exercise Classes
• Les Mills Virtual Programming
