With the move to Phase 5, the B.R. Ryall YMCA made some modifications (outlined below) to our COVID facility guidelines. As always, the safety of our members, program participants and staff will remain our top priority.
Temperature checks are no longer be required. Please self-monitor and do not come to the Y if you have a fever, are not feeling well or have been in contact with someone who was diagnosed with COVID in the last 14 days.
As of Friday, July 30, the DuPage County Health Department strongly endorses the updated CDC masking guidance which recommends everyone, including fully vaccinated individuals, wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas with substantial and high transmission. DuPage County COVID-19 transmission rates are currently “substantial” per the CDC. Masks are strongly recommended when indoors at the B.R. Ryall YMCA.
If you are fully vaccinated, it is your choice whether to wear a mask in the Y–except if in the presence of children and unable to social distance. As we have 200 children (who are not eligible to be vaccinated) in our facility each day for child care and camps, we ask everyone (even those who are vaccinated) to wear a mask if in close proximity to children and unable to social distance.
Reservations are not required for the Wellness Center.
Please continue to pick up a spray bottle on your way into the building and clean all equipment and surfaces before and after use.
Staff will continue to clean equipment and high touch surfaces throughout the day, and we ask for your continued support in our efforts by cleaning as well before and after contact. In addition, our facilities team will continue to deep clean and sanitize nightly using the Clorox 360 electrostatic sprayer, which has an EPA-registered kill claim against COVID-19 and is on the EPA’s list N of Disinfectants for Use Against COVID-19.
Saunas, steam rooms and whirlpools are open for adult members.
