The North Bay YMCA is set to reopen following months of closure due to the pandemic.
The YMCA’s website says that it plans to reopen on September 8.
“Fitness classes for both branches and the Aquatics Centre in North Bay, including private and semi-private swim lessons, will open Monday, September 14th,” the Y states.
It will operate differently when it reopens, following local and provincial safety guidelines. Visitors must self screen themselves for COVID-19 symptoms before arriving at the facility.
There will also be capacity limits in the change rooms, with the website urging visitors to cooperate with staff to maintain those limits.
The website also encourages visitors to come to the building already dressed as there will be limited locker and change room availability.
Masks are encouraged when walking around the facility but are not required while working out.
The YMCA also plans to close daily between 1:30 pm and 3 pm for enhanced cleaning.
The website says that memberships will be reactivated on September 8, providing two free weeks of service to allow for people to get used to the new protocols. Fees will kick in again on September 21 for members.
