Updated Mask Policy for Fitness/Gym and Aquatics Programs at the Y

As of June 1, 2021

Effective June 1st, vaccinated members and guests can show proof of their vaccination (either by showing their Excelsior NY Vaccination pass or their vaccination card ) and remove their masks while utilizing our Fitness, Aquatics, or Gym facilities only.

These vaccinated members and guests are no longer required to complete our daily COVID-related health screening prior to entry.

All unvaccinated members and guests are required to wear their masks at our gym, fitness, and aquatic facilities.

Reservations for the fitness room will not be required.

Please note that we still require all members and guests to comply with our Mask policy in June 2021 if they are NOT using our fitness, gym, and aquatic facilities.

Please note that Vaccinated Staff members not facing our members and guests (e.g. office, accounting office, social services) as well as our lifeguards can remove their masks upon providing our HR with their proof of vaccination.

Our locker usage will be increased to 50% capacity.
