As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve locally and across the country, we will provide updates here about how our Y is responding.


We are monitoring updates by the Alabama Department of Public Health for any changes in recommendations for individuals, businesses and organizations. In addition to the guidance we’ve already provided about good personal hygiene and staying home if you don’t feel well, officials are also recommending that at-risk individuals should avoid crowds and take other steps to protect themselves. “At-risk” is defined as anyone over the age of 60 or anyone of any age with a chronic medical condition including heart disease, lung disease or diabetes.

Staying Safe Together

We will continue to follow our welcome back to the Y plan as facility usage increases.  Our goal is to maintain a safe and healthy facility for our members.

What The Y Is Doing

Regular Temperature Checks: Staff, members, and program members will receive a temperature check before being permitted to start their work shift, or to check-in to the facility.

PPE for All Staff: All Y staff will be required to wear a mask as well as other personal protective equipment.

Self-Scan: Members will be asked to self-scan when checking in.

Designed for Social Distance: Areas inside the Y have been evaluated and redesigned where necessary to help ensure social distancing between members.  Signage will be placed prominently throughout the facility to drive awareness of social distancing.

What We’re Asking Members To Do

Stay Home if You’re Sick: Members should stay home if they don’t feel well.

Be Ready for Temperature Checks: All members will have their temperature taken prior to check-in.  We will ask you some health screening questions as well.

Keep the Kids Home: We are unable to provide Child Watch and Kidz Fit at this time and recommend you not bring children and other family members with you as common area seating will be extremely limited.

Bring a Mask and a Water Bottle: Members will be asked to bring their own water bottle and the Y will also request that members bring a mask and wear it whenever possible, especially in common areas where other members are present.

Keep Your Distance: Please exercise on designated equipment only, and respect all signage regarding social distancing.

Expect Reduced Capacity: To ensure proper social distancing, wellness areas will have limited capacity.

Remember to Wipe Down Equipment: Please help us reduce the risk of exposure by wiping down all equipment, and weights with the provided cleaning materials before and after use.
