The safety and well-being of our members, staff, volunteers and all in our community is our priority, now more than ever. Thank you for being part of the Y and for all you are doing to support the greater good as we all face this unprecedented health challenge.
While there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at any Cedar Rapids Metro YMCA facility, at the most recent direction from the Governor we have been required to TEMPORARILY close all five YMCA facilities and YMCA Camp Wapsie effective Tuesday, March 17th at 1:00 PM until further notice.
Leadership is closely monitoring this situation day-by-day in order to further determine a safe reopening date. Our association will continue to provide regular updates as we navigate through this extremely difficult time. We will continue to communicate with members via email and regularly update this page and our Facebook page.
This TEMPORARY closure will have very real financial consequences, however, as we intend to continue employment for our full-time staff during this challenging time. We will rely heavily on the continued support of members, program participants and donors. Therefore, we ask that if you are able, please continue to pay your monthly Y membership dues and enroll in future programming. This will ensure the Y is able to provide services when this crisis has passed.
WAYS TO STAY ACTIVE
To help you stay healthy in spirit, mind and body during this time, we offer on-demand workouts that can be accessed online through our website. There is NO extra charge to access these classes through Y360. There are a variety of classes offered that are updated regularly and include workouts for all ages.
Thank you for supporting our efforts and leaning in with us as we work to combat this pandemic together. The YMCA is so much for than just a fitness facility, pool or place to workout. We are a community, and we will do everything we can to move past this historical event to better serve you and your family.
During this time, we ask that you contact your local branch between the hours of 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM with questions. Beginning Monday, March 23rd, we ask that you direct all calls to our Helen G Nassif YMCA at 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM.
