Our YMCA is committed to the health and safety of our members, staff and community. On November 23, Governor Cooper announced stricter mask requirements to slow the spread of COVID-19. Beginning Wednesday, November 25, masks will be required at all times inside YMCA facilities, including while exercising. Wearing a mask not only keeps our friends and family safe, it is critical to keeping our YMCA open. We appreciate your support.
