COVID19 UPDATE - MARCH 25, 2020
March 25, 2020
On behalf of our YMCA, I would like to thank you again for your patience and understanding as we work through this pandemic crisis. While our initial plan had been to re-open our YMCA on March 30th, following Governor Northam’s announcement yesterday requiring all non-essential businesses (including fitness centers) to close through April 24th, we have no choice but to adhere to the guidelines. As such, our YMCA will remain closed during the mandated shutdown and will re-open as soon as possible after the restriction is lifted.
Even though our facility is closed temporarily, we are working diligently to offer you continued value to support your health during this time. In addition to access to digital-on-demand fitness programming and YMCA Group Fitness Instructor-Led videos, we will begin offering online interactive workouts and exercise routines that can be completed at home. For our children, we will begin offering craft options, pre-school activities and other online programming to help keep them entertained and connected to their friends and teachers. Please be on the lookout on our social media sites for other ideas that we plan to roll out in the near future as well.
Our ability to continue to serve you all now and in the future once we re-open is dependent on each of you. Now, more than ever, we need you to STAY WITH US, in order to continue to provide needed services, support our staff and ensure you can return to the YMCA you know and love as quickly as possible. Even during the best of times, YMCA membership fees only cover half of the operating expenses required to keep our Y functioning. As such, I ask that you retain your YMCA membership and when you do, we will designate it as a charitable gift. By making just one monthly donation, you will be doing a world of good in our very own community.
Thank you once again for your support of our YMCA over the years. We pray that you and your families will be safe during this time and are looking forward to the day when each of you walk back through our open doors.
