YMCA of Eastern Ontario Re-opening Announcement

With today’s provincial announcement on re-opening, we are happy to let you know that we will be opening our facilities on February 22.

Our first priority has always been on the safety of everyone in our facilities and this re-opening phase will stay true to this approach. Opening on February 22 allows us time to work with our public health units to ensure the correct protocols are in place. It also provides time needed to get our facilities ready including having time for public health inspections, to recall staff and to ensure that staff are re-trained on the protocols that will be in place.

During the first week of opening, we will be ramping up fitness classes with a regular schedule in place effective March 1.

Online registration for space (fitness centre, gym, pool) and for fitness classes will be required. This is a change from how members have accessed the Y in the past and we will post details on this in the coming days as well as our new class schedules.

Other safety measures including limiting access to our facilities to local members, maintaining physical distancing, sanitizing, masking will remain in place.

Your membership fees will resume on their usual schedule starting on March 1.

As we confirm details of re-opening, we will post to the news page of our website and through our social media channels.
