Frequently Asked Questions

How has the YMCA prepared their facilities for social distancing?

We have taken great steps to prepare our branches for social/physical distancing. We have trained our staff and worked to follow local guidelines the CDC, Tarrant County and City of Fort Worth officials put in place. Examples of our social/physical distancing measures includes spacing out our equipment, limiting facility and room occupancy, and having staff wear masks where they interact with members. 

How do you monitor capacity limits?

Our Member Services team has a dashboard of our facility count and we are able to monitor our capacity limit. We have created protocols to ensure we stay within our allowed capacity in our building and in each area. 

I would like to place my membership on hold - how do I do that?

Monthly membership fees may be put on hold for medical, travel or personal emergency reasons for 1-3 months each calendar year.  Hold requests must be made 14 days in advance. If you’d like to place your membership on hold, please complete and sign our hold form.

Are group exercise classes being offered?

We are offering various group exercise classes each each of our facilities. Some classes will be held in larger spaces to help with our social/physical distancing measures. As a reminder, you can access any YMCA of Fort Worth facility so be sure to check out the variety of classes at each location. 

Are temperature checks required prior to entry?

Temperature checks are being performed on our staff as well as children entering Y Playhouse. Members are encouraged to follow our Member Behavior Policy which includes making sure they self-report if they begin to feel symptoms and stay home if they are feeling ill. Members are also required to sign an updated waiver prior to entering our branches for the first time.

Why don’t you have towel service?

Towels are used to wipe sweat, soiled surfaces, and/or moisture from one’s body. Staff members would be responsible for gathering a large amount of those soiled towels to launder them. This poses a greater risk to our staff members and we have decided to temporarily discontinue towel service as a result.
