Keeping Our YMCA Healthy

Posted 03/13/2020

Update: March 13, 2020

The Granite YMCA will remain open regular hours.

At The Granite YMCA, we take your health and safety very seriously. With the growing concern regarding the 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are taking every precaution possible to ensure that we minimize your risk of exposure.

To that end, we have increased our preventative actions and expanded our efforts in cleaning and disinfecting.

  • All branches have increased disinfecting activities, especially in child care, group ex classes, wellness centers, locker rooms, and on all commonly used hard surfaces.
  • Hand sanitizers, disinfecting sprays and paper towels, along with posted personal hygiene signage is increased at every branch.
  • Elevated staff training and awareness and established clear guidelines so that staff can help members stay healthy.

We all play a role in keeping our community healthy and preventing the spread of germs and illness. Basic hygiene is key and each person should always take simple daily precautions to help prevent the spread of all respiratory illnesses.

  • Please stay home when you are sick and call your doctor for more information
  • Wash or sanitize your hands often
  • Wipe down and sanitize equipment before and after use (fitness center, yoga mats, etc.)
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • If you are age 60+ or have a serious medical condition, please contact your medical provider regarding your safe participation in Y programs

The Granite YMCA is deeply committed to the health and wellness of all. We will continue to monitor the situation, communicate openly, and support you and your family by providing a safe and nurturing YMCA. We encourage everyone to regularly check the Y website and Facebook pages for important updates and safety information.

Let's work together to ensure the Y continues to be a safe place and resource in our community. If you have questions or concerns, please contact me at dports@graniteymca.org.

At The Granite YMCA, we take your health and safety very seriously. The respiratory illness Coronavirus has become an elevated concern around the world, and now officials in the U.S. have warned that we might see an outbreak across the United States. When a serious health issue arises as in the flu, our staff team comes together to evaluate our strategies to keep our members and staff healthy.

We understand people may worry, however, many of our existing best practices around cleaning will sufficiently support protecting our members and staff from the threat of this new virus. Risk is dependent on exposure. It is important that you protect your own health and well-being by following the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control which can be found online here.

While the CDC considers the Coronavirus a serious situation and is taking preparedness measures, the immediate risk in the U.S. is considered low. Basic hygiene is key and each person should ALWAYS take simple daily precautions to help prevent the spread of all respiratory illnesses:

  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap or use a hand sanitizer that contains alcohol.
  • Sneeze and cough into tissues (or into your elbow) and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. If you get mucus on your skin, clean it off right away. • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, especially people exhibiting respiratory symptoms and fever.
  • Stay home when you’re sick, especially with symptoms of a fever and/or cough.
  • Regularly and thoroughly clean surfaces, such as counter tops, phones and doorknobs with a disinfectant.

The Coronavirus, Influenza and common cold viruses are spread through respiratory vapor, such as when someone sneezes or coughs into the air around you.

At The Granite YMCA, these are some precautions and actions that we have in place:

  • YMCA staff and volunteers that are ill will be asked to stay out of work until they are symptom free.
  • We are asking members who may be ill with a contagious condition to stay home and return to the Y when they are well and display no symptoms (especially fever or respiratory).
  • As has been the policy, children in our Early Learning Centers, School’s Out Programs and Kid Zones are required to stay out of program a minimum of 24 hours after being deemed symptom free.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are available to all. We will also post gentle reminders throughout our facilities with the CDC’s guidelines for preventing the spread of cold, flu or other viruses.
  • We are asking all members to clean equipment BEFORE and AFTER workouts, with the antibacterial wipes and sprays that we provide.
  • Our staff will elevate our cleaning protocols for disinfecting frequently used surfaces in our facilities.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at dports@graniteymca.org. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

Commitment to Equality
Posted 06/05/2020
The Granite YMCA is an organization that has committed to ensuring that all people are welcome and that all people are treated with dignity and respect, and that all people are loved and cared for. While our actions have a lasting impact and play an important role in making our space safe and nurturing, I think that we must also turn and face outward and bring that same commitment to our communities and our nation. We must commit to combating racism everywhere that we see or experience it, peacefully, but relentlessly, until people of color can report that they are and feel safe wherever they may be in America. Until that time comes, we must take action, educate, and advocate for racial equality.
