COVID-19 Updates | Greater Green Bay YMCA Skip to main content

Effective Saturday, August 1, 2020, a facial covering will be required for everyone inside our facilities except:

  • Children under the age of 5
  • Individuals who have trouble breathing, especially during accelerated physical exertion activities
  • Those with medical conditions that prevent wearing of a face covering
  • Those who have mental health conditions, sensory sensitivities or developmental disabilities
  • While swimming, using aquatics facilities, or showering
  • On-duty lifeguards
  • While eating or drinking
  • When an individual is speaking while leading an activity as long as they remain 6 feet from others

Members are encouraged to inform Y staff upon arrival if they qualify for an exception to the state of WI emergency order. If a participant removes their mask during physical activity, Y staff will assume they are exempt from the state-wide mandate. While staff may offer a mask to all participants, they can decline that offer based on their exemption.

We ask that all members respect the privacy of others. Please assume participants without facial coverings are exempt from the state-wide mandate. 

We encourage, but no not require, those outside of our facilities (athletic fields, parking lots, etc.) to:

  • Wear face coverings except children under the age of 5
  • Maintain an appropriate distance, six feet or more, from all other parties
  • Limit contact to infrequent or incidental movement with fitness activities

Thank you for your ongoing cooperation in the keeping our community safe and healthy.
