August 7 Re-opening Update: Pools Plus: Rob's vlog

We are pleased to share with you that aquafit classes and lane swims will be available beginning on opening day, September 1!

We will begin this phase of opening with continuing our drop-in access. This means that you will not have to book either lane swims or aquafit classes. This decision has been made based on your feedback in our member survey and the experience of other facilities that have opened before those in Ontario. We will monitor how well this works and will adapt as necessary.

With public health guidelines in place, classes and lanes will be limited. To address this, we will monitor demand and add classes or lanes as numbers grow.

We expect to have the schedule and details available for you next week.

Fortunately, because of the configuration of YMCA facilities and the steps we are taking to ensure physical distancing in our buildings, masks are not required when swimming or working out, but are required at all other times, for example, when walking in hallways and in locker rooms. 

It is up to all of us to be mindful of our surroundings, especially for physical distancing, and to remember that we’re all in this together!

Looking forward to seeing you back at the Y on September 1!
