What will be the new safety measures and procedures for members? What classes and sports will be on the schedule? Why wait until August to reopen? Why isn’t my centre reopening right away? If I decide not to come back right away... When will the pool be open? What are the new terms of use for the conditioning room? How do I reserve a space for group classes or the conditioning room? What services will be available (water fountains, towel service, lockers, etc.) Are you planning on offering online training for FIT or CPR certifications? Will the membership rate stay the same even if there are fewer services? What new safety measures has the Y put into place? Are you planning on offering online training for FIT? I would like to help the Y get through this crisis. What can I do?
