Reopening Guidelines

REOPENING HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDELINES

We are committed to providing a clean and safe environment for our members, staff and program participants. We will be adhering to all CDC guidelines, as well as state and local guidelines in order to protect everyone who walks into one of our facilities. The guidelines below were developed by our team and reviewed by the Skagit County Public Health Department.

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN Y REOPENING STAGE 2

Our goal is to keep our members safe and protected while they use our facilities, so we are following strict guidelines from the CDC and state authorities. Please note that the Y will look a lot different than it has in the past in order to make our reopening possible. We will have a slow, staged reopening and ask that members please check this page frequently to see what parts of the facility have reopened. These are unprecedented times and we will need to work together to ensure a safe opening for all.
