The Alliance of New York State YMCAs represents the interests and concerns of the 37 independent YMCAs and their 135 branches and facilities throughout New York, including your Norwich Family YMCA.
We continue to stress the importance of properly wearing your mask while at the Y, social distancing and cleaning your areas after usage.
Y's in NYS are asking the State to consider updating the Interim Guidance for Gyms and Fitness Centers During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency to 50 percent capacity of the maximum occupancy of facilities. YMCAs rely on membership dues and program fees generated from their wellness centers to offset the costs associated with providing essential community services. The current 33 percent capacity limit prohibits the YMCA from providing members with additional space & programming that fosters a healthy spirit, mind, and body during a time of crisis.
