Keeping the YMCA Clean and Sanitized


As the saying goes, we’ve “upped our game” significantly (with major investments in new cleaning equipment, tools and solutions). Every YMCA branch will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to opening each day (with higher expectations of our internal cleaning crews). We will disinfect high-touch surfaces multiple times every day. 

We’ve installed more cleaning and sanitizing stations in all branches including touchless soap and towel dispensers. Eventually, all hand sanitizing, soap and towel dispensers will be touchless in our facilities.. We are confident in our revamped cleaning and sanitizing processes and teams.

For more on our updated cleaning and sanitizing procedures, visit our online Reopening Guide. 

On that note, every YMCA staff member will go through a training session later this week (and will wear masks when we reopen). The message to all staff: We’re all on the YMCA cleaning crew. In a cost-cutting measure, we’re vacating our Summit Street office, with most staff there moving to branches. In other words, we are responsible for cleaning and sanitizing as well.
