To our Y family:
As COVID-19, and the Delta variant, continue to spread, we recognize the need to find a balance between ensuring businesses can stay open to serve the community and protecting the health and safety of those around us.
The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth continues to work with health experts and comply with local, regional and state requirements when serving our communities. In an effort to minimize operational impacts of COVID-19, staff are wearing masks while at the YMCAs. The Fort Worth Y continues to put the health and safety of our members, program participants, children, and guests as our top priority.
Masks are welcome, but not required.
The YMCA encourages anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask to protect their health to do so. The Y also encourages individuals who have not been vaccinated to wear masks or face coverings and to get vaccinated.
Take advantage of our virtual fitness options.
For anyone who is not comfortable coming to YMCA facilities, check out our Virtual Studio. You can find a fitness class that’s fun, supportive and keeps you moving…wherever you are.
Continue to keep your distance.
YMCA staff and members are encouraged to maintain three (3) feet of space from people not in the same household.
Stay home if you are sick.
Individuals are expected to stay home if they have any new or worsening signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19 or have had known close contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19. Members, guests and staff are asked to self-monitor for symptoms or known close contact.
Wipe down equipment.
We have cleaning and sanitation procedures throughout the day, focusing on high touch points such as handrails, doorknobs, light switches, counters, etc. All staff and members are asked to practice respiratory hygiene by covering coughs and sneezes as well as frequent and thorough hand washing.
The CDC recommends those 12 years and older should get vaccinated to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. The Y strongly encourages everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated.
The YMCA is dedicated to the health and safety of our entire community, including our staff members. As COVID-19 is an ongoing global pandemic, the safety and health strategies we are employing are beneficial to individuals both at the YMCA and the community at large.
Thank you for being a continued supporter of the YMCA.
