For the safety of our YMCA members, program participants and staff, we are being thoughtful and intentional about our reopening process. Based on CDC and State guidelines for operation, we are reopening all membership branches with limited offerings and hours. This will enable our staff team to maintain facility cleanliness, and control facility traffic in accordance with social distancing recommendations. We continue to work through a phased, graduated plan to increase offerings and service hours as the State allows. We will closely follow the Governor’s orders (including capacity limits), and require that everyone maintain six feet of social distance from others. We eagerly await the opportunity to see our Y family again soon, and to continue serving you, our friends and neighbors!

*UPDATED BRANCH HOURS & AMENITIES AS OF JULY 31*

Temperature Checks

Temperature Checks

Anyone entering the building will be asked to answer a brief series of health screening questions, and will have their temperature taken. Those who do not pass the health questionnaire, or have a temperature of 100.4 and higher will not be allowed access to the facility.

Showers & Lockers

Showers & Lockers

Lockers and showers are now available. Please help us by using provided spray bottles to sanitize your shower stall and locker after use. Dry saunas at all available branches will also be open, but steam rooms remained closed for now. Remember to bring your towel!

 

Social Distancing

Keep Your Distance

We have prepared our branches for social distancing by spacing out equipment, alternating our treadmill and cardio usage to every other machine, and by limiting capacity in the facility and in classes so everyone has the recommended six feet of space.

Wipe Down Equipment

Wipe Down Equipment

Our Y staff will be sanitizing equipment and high-touch areas regularly and deep cleaning after the facilities are closed. Please do your part by wiping down equipment before and after your workout with the EPA-approved disinfectant and sanitizer provided.

Reduced Capacity

Expect Reduced Capacity

Currently, the State is mandating that gym capacity be limited to 5 people (staff and members) per 1,000 square feet or 20% capacity (whichever is less). Each of our facilities is different in size and will have a different operating capacity. We will be keeping an active count of attendees in the branches to adhere to this order.

Wear Your Mask

Wear Your Mask

While not required, The Y requests that members wear their masks whenever possible, especially in common areas.

Child Watch

Child Watch

Child Watch is now available at the Prisma Health, Caine Halter, George I. Theisen and Eastside Family YMCA locations for children ages 2-12! Household members can reserve a time HERE. Child watch is limited to one hour per day per child during this phase or reopening, and parents will need to bring an ID so staff can verify your reservation on the child watch roster

Reserve Lap Swimming

Pools

Family Swim and Water Aerobics are NOW AVAILABLE! While Family Swim is first-come, first-served, we ask you to RSVP HERE or on the group exercise page for any water fitness class. Lap lane reservation is still required at some branches, and you can RSVP HERE up to 24 hours in advance. You'll join a waitlist if your preferred time slot is full (you’ll get an email notification if a spot opens up).  Reservation links will become live 24 hours before the scheduled class. Reservations no longer required for Prisma Health YMCA pool lap swim, or Caine Halter Family YMCA pool lap swim.

Group Exercise Reservations

Group Exercise

Our Group Exercise schedules are being added-to weekly, but class sizes are still limited. So please continue to RSVP here for classes in advance to help us manage capacity. Visit our Group Exercise Page to see the schedule. Class reservations are first-come, first-served (registration links will become active 24 hours prior to the scheduled class). We politely ask that members sign up for only one class per day, to ensure availability for all.

Stay at Home

Stay Home if You're Sick

CDC and state guidelines encourage seniors and other vulnerable populations to stay home.

    Per State and CDC recommendations, we encourage anyone entering the facility to wear a mask, especially in common areas. However, masks are not required, and we are not suggesting that masks be worn during vigorous activity, exercise, or in instances where they may obstruct breathing. Our staff team is required to wear masks while working (unless they’re teaching a group exercise class), but we won’t prevent you from accessing the Y if you prefer not to wear one.

    The YMCA of Greenville is providing traditional Summer Day Camp, but will not provide specialty camps or sports camps.
