Following the provincial government’s announcement of a return to a modified version of level II Covid protocols that includes a closure or recreation and fitness facilities, I am writing with regret to inform you that the YMCA of Eastern Ontario health and fitness facilities will be closed as of end of operating hours on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 and, based on the announcement, we expect to re-open on January 26.
Due to the statutory holiday, your January payment has not been withdrawn and will not be.
As per previous closures, there are a few things to keep in mind.
During the past 22 months of this pandemic, your YMCA has taken every action to make our facilities as safe as possible, and our staff have provided online workouts and other activities to keep us active and connected.
If you are in a position to support your Y through a donation of your January fees, your gift will ensure that we are able to open in a stronger position, providing programming sooner than we would be able to without your support. To make this donation, please reply to this email letting us know of your intent.
Your safety is our first priority. When we do re-open, rest assured that your YMCA will continue to implement protocols, in consultation with public heath, that set the highest health standards.
I wish you and your family health and happiness this new year and always.
CEO, YMCA of Eastern Ontario
