๐ŸšจMasks are now optional for fully vaccinated members!๐Ÿšจ

Exciting news! California is officially aligned with the CDC on the use of face coverings.

What does this mean for the Y?

Beginning June 15, masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated individuals during indoor and outdoor workouts.

Safety remains our top priority for members and staff. Masks are still required for any members who are not fully vaccinated. All YMCA staff will also continue to wear masks until we receive further guidance from Cal/OSHA later this week.

If you are vaccinated and prefer to continue to wear a mask, we support you!

In addition to the news of face coverings, the state issued revised guidelines that will inform our updated operating procedures regarding other services such as lockers, showers, capacity, group exercise, and more. We appreciate your patience while we finalize our new procedures and train staff. We will share updates as they become available.

We are so grateful to all of our members for standing with the Y during this challenging time. You navigated all of the changes with the strength and caring that are hallmarks of the Y community. With your support, we were able to shift our services all while upholding our mission of empowering youth, advancing health, and strengthening communities.

Thank you for your continued patience and support as we continue to safely navigate through additional changes. We canโ€™t wait to see you at the Y!

Our hearts and minds are with George Floydโ€™s family. Our hope is that todayโ€™s verdict is an inflection point to bend the arc of justice toward equity.

Despite the verdict, it does not erase the loss of George Floyd, nor does it eliminate the heartbreak felt across communities everywhere.

Today was a step toward accountability. Itโ€™s a step in a path toward justice and equity for all in becoming an anti-racist Y and an anti-racist society.

Now itโ€™s in our hands. We all have a responsibility to challenge and end social injustice in our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and our communities as a whole.

The path toward justice is a marathon, not a sprint. We look forward to making deliberate progress in our strong Y community of committed volunteers, members, and staff as well as our future leaders, our youth.

Together we can build true equity for all.

General information

The Y makes strengthening our communities our cause. By offering affordable child care to low- and middle-income families, by developing drug prevention and anti-gang programs for at-risk youth, by helping military families cope with having a family member overseas, and through so many other programs that promote a healthy spirit, mind and body. Twenty-one million people of all ages and walks of life who turn to one of our more than 2,600 Ys each year know weโ€™re here for them, because weโ€™ve been here for them the last 160 years. Thatโ€™s why weโ€™re one of the largest community service organizations in the U.S. We count on the generosity of our members and partners to keep our doors open to whoever needs a place to go to help them be more healthy, confident, connected and secure
