Y Members, welcome back!  We are so happy to have our Y Family back in our buildings. To keep our members safe and protected, the Y is following strict guidelines from the CDC, WEDC and local authorities. The Y is continuously working to protect the health and safety of our members, staff, and community. More areas and offerings will return when we feel it is safe to offer the service to our members once again. The Y believes that exercise is a proven immunity-booster and, as a part of a healthy lifestyle, is vital to overall health and well-being. Additionally, we understand the mental and emotional dangers of social isolation. The Y aims to help members meet their physical, social, and emotional needs while also doing all we can to offer a safe and healthy environment during these difficult circumstances. Find numerous welcome back resources below!

Important Message from Theresa Hillis, CEO

Our Response to the Emergency Order - 7/28/2020

 

Since our doors opened to the community back in May, we have required face coverings in all common areas of the YMCA. Yesterday, Governor Evers issued Executive Order 82, declaring a public health emergency, and corresponding Emergency Order 1 requiring face coverings in the state of Wisconsin.

 

Effective SATURDAY, AUGUST 1 (as directed by the Governor's order), the YMCA requires face coverings for everyone inside our facilities except:

  • Children under the age of 5
  • Individuals who are having trouble breathing, during accelerated physical exertion activities
  • Those with medical conditions that prevent wearing of a face covering
  • Those who have mental health conditions, sensory sensitivities, or developmental disabilities
  • While swimming, using aquatics facilities, or showering
  • While eating or drinking
  • When an instructor is speaking while leading an activity as long as they remain 6 feet from others 

We encourage, but do not require, those outside our facilities (athletic fields, parking lots, etc.) to:

  • Wear face coverings, except children under the age of 5
  • Maintain an appropriate distance of six feet or more from all other parties
  • Limit contact to infrequent or incidental movement within fitness activities

Summer Day Camp staff and campers (ages 5 and older) are required to wear face coverings outdoors unless participating in an activity where physical distancing is possible.

 

Are you wondering what type of mask you should wear? YMCA of the Chippewa Valley CEO, Theresa Hillis, is offering some advice on what may work best for you. Watch the video below!

 

 

We appreciate your willingness to comply with this Emergency Order. Wearing masks will create a safer environment for all and slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community.  

 

Thank you for being part of our YMCA community. If you haven't visited us yet, when you are ready - we will be waiting and ready for you.
