Guidelines for All Phases.

The YMCA will develop and implement appropriate policies, in accordance with Federal, State and local regulations and guidance, and informed by industry best practices, regarding:

  • Social/physical distancing and PPE
  • Temperature checks
  • Testing, isolating and contact tracing
  • Sanitation
  • Use and disinfection of common and high-traffic areas
  • Business travel

YMCAs will monitor workforce for symptoms and will not allow symptomatic people to return, in-person, to work until cleared by a medical provider.  The YMCA will help implement a policy and procedure for workforce contact tracing following an employee COVID+ test.

Members who are considered to be part of a vulnerable population (i.e. senior population age 62 and older and/or those with underlying health issues) should take extra awareness and are encouraged to get clearance from a health professional before entering the facility. Members who are considered to be part of a vulnerable population will be allowed into our YMCA facilities and have access to a controlled area to exercise.

All facilities will implement additional sanitation procedures, wellness checks, and have staff dedicated to cleaning equipment between users. Additional facility specific changes to normal operations may include:

  • Showers are available.  Members are still encouraged to shower at home if at all possible.
  • Coffee area is available.
  • Towel service is still NOT available at this time.
  • Some group fitness classes are availble. Check out our Branch Goup Exercise Schedules
  • Basketball gyms are open for pickup basketball with restrictions.
  • Hartsville pool is open! You can call in to reserve a lane or walk-in.
  • Chesterfield and Darlington pools are closed at this time.
  • Saunas are open.
  • Steam rooms are still closed.
  • Personal Training has resumed on a limited basis.
  • Guests are now allowed.
  • Racquetball courts are open with restrictions.
  • Childwatch is available. 
  • Youth Sports are running. Visit our Youth Sports page and sign up today!

Throughout Phase 2, the YMCA will evaluate and assess the efforts and make appropriate changes where needed. The YMCA will seek guidance from local/state leaders and health professionals and will then consider reducing restrictions and move into Phase 3.
