NEW HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Based on the recent updates to guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the YMCA of Greater Kansas City has updated our health and safety policies.
Face coverings are no longer required at YMCA membership centers. If you are unvaccinated, face coverings and social distancing are recommended. Anyone is welcome to wear a face covering at any time and to social distance.
Vaccinated Y associates at membership centers will no longer be required to wear face coverings beginning June 1, 2021.
At all other YMCA of Greater Kansas City locations, we continue to monitor guidance from local health departments and will adjust our practices as local health orders change.
We will no longer check your temperature when you enter any of our Y membership centers, but we do continue to ask that you monitor your health. Please stay home if:
- You have been exposed to COVID-19
- You are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19
- You are experiencing any symptoms of other contagious illnesses
Face coverings are no longer required for participants and associates at YMCA of Greater Kansas City outdoor activities, including Youth Sports, Bitty Sports and Challenger programs.
