COVID-19 Health & Safety Update

As you may have heard, Governor Cuomo recently issued a new mask mandate for New York State, aligning with the CDC guidance around mask wearing.  Beginning Wednesday, May 19th, members and program participants of the Saratoga Regional YMCA who are fully vaccinated may utilize our facilities and participate in programs without a face mask.*

Fully vaccinated is defined as:

  • 2 weeks after the second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine

Fully vaccinated SRYMCA members, participants and guests are welcome to continue wearing a mask if you feel more comfortable doing so.

If you do not meet the above requirements, you are NOT considered fully vaccinated and therefore are required to continue to wear a mask when inside a YMCA facility and when outdoors on our grounds when social distancing cannot be maintained.  We are counting on the integrity of our Y community to follow this guidance based on their vaccination status. 

*Please note, this does not apply to any of our child care or youth serving programs. 

If you have any questions regarding the mask order while accessing the facility, please visit the member service desk, and a staff member will be happy to assist you.

Help us maintain a healthy and safe environment for all.

  • If you feel sick, please stay home
  • Wipe down your equipment before and after each use
  • Keep your distance and practice appropriate social distancing
  • Wash your hands often
  • Make a pool or group exercise reservation in advance using our mobile app or website

How the Y is keeping you safe?

  • We are rigorously cleaning and disinfecting our facilities and equipment prior to opening and throughout the day
  • We have distanced equipment, and provided more space to workout
  • We continue to limit the number of people within our facility to help maintain social distancing, where possible

  • We have upgraded our HVAC systems to have air filtration systems with MERV-13 filers
  • We will continue to conduct health screens for members and program participants prior to entering our facilities

The safety of our members, participants and staff remains our top priority. We will continue to uphold COVID-19 safety guidelines from the CDC and NYS DOH.  

We appreciate your care and respect for your fellow Y members as we continue to work together to maintain the safest environment possible.
