COVID-19 UPDATES – South Sound YMCA

COVID-19 UPDATES

As we enter Spring, we are optimistic about the state of the pandemic and the collective efforts we are all taking to combat it. Our goal throughout this crisis is to keep you and your family safe while providing essential health & fitness programs – both emotional and physical.

As you may be aware, on March 22, Governor Inslee moved both Thurston and Mason Counties into Phase 3 of the Healthy Washington Roadmap to Recovery plan. The most notable component of this phase is that capacity increases and some restrictions are eliminated at our branches. However, properly worn masks and physical distancing are still required at all times.

Please review our COVID Updates and our area guidelines below before visiting your Y.
