Dear YMCA Community:
Governor Cooper announced today that our state will remain in Safer at Home Phase 2 for another five weeks (through September 11th). While our indoor fitness centers remain closed for now, we have resumed activities following all federal, state and local health guidelines. Our pool is open and group exercise instructors are offering outdoor classes, Summer Camp participants continue enjoying safe summer fun and Sports Clinics have begun.
The Governor also announced the State's recommendations for restarting school with a mix of in-person and remote learning. Like you, the Y has been navigating uncharted territory as we develop plans to provide flexible and affordable child care. We know families are eager to make plans for the school year, and we are working diligently with our local schools and community partners to adapt and finalize options for your child's out-of-school time. We will provide you with our plans as soon as they are available.
Thank you to those members who have maintained an active membership with us. Your monthly dues have allowed us to continue providing services as permitted and maintain our facility and financial obligations. While we share in your disappointment that operations of our full facility remain closed, we respect the decisions made on behalf of community health and safety.
Our staff is diligently working hard to ensure all Y activities and environments are clean and safe for everyone. This year marks forty years we have been here for our community and now we continue to ask you to be there for us as we do our work to serve you and our community. We thank you for your support and for #StayingWithUs!
