facility and operational Covid-19 updates

Covid-19 Update 06/25/2020

To our members, 

As you may have heard, Governor Cooper announced yesterday afternoon that phase 2 of North Carolina’s reopening plan will be extended another three weeks. While we are eager to open our fitness centers for indoor exercise, we remain grateful to for the opportunity to continue engaging our members in outdoor exercise and activities, day camp and pool fun. We love seeing our members again and appreciate your understanding as we follow all federal, state and local guidelines. We’ll take every opportunity we get to welcome our members back to the Y, even when socially distant and wearing face masks as required in NC.

We continue working hard indoors and out to ensure an environment that is clean and safe for everyone. We’ll keep you updated on our plans to reopen our fitness center and hope you’ll take advantage of the many activities and classes available outside and online!

Thank you again for your support, flexibility and for staying with us.


Covid-19 Update 05/20/2020

Today, the Cleveland County Family YMCA learned that gyms will not be included in North Carolina’s Phase 2 of easing restrictions. We are disappointed this order prevents us from opening our wellness facilities. The Y is so much more than a gym and we know that our wellness centers improve health and give us the opportunity to connect face-to-face with people we care about. 

We are still trying to understand the Executive Order #141 and look forward to sharing more details about what will be allowed:

-Pool Operations 

-Outdoor Wellness Programming

-Day Camp

We are finalizing details and registration processes for our Day camp, which will start on June 8th at all branches. Details will be communicated very soon. Cameron Corder, CEO or the Cleveland County Family YMCA, “We’ve been working diligently with health experts, local authorities and our sister Y’s across the country to prepare for your safe return. I remain confident that we will continue to move forward and be ready when that time comes.” 

“The YMCA will continue to serve the community through childcare, wellness check ins for at risk populations, feeding programs and to find other ways to serve,” Corder added. We remain grateful to our members and donors for continuing to #StayWithUs as we continue to serve our neighbors when they need us most.

Covid-19 Update 05/11/2020

We are pleased that our state’s Stay at Home order has been modified to allow some commercial activity. Our Y is in Phase 2 of NC’s approach to lifting restrictions which can begin in 2 to 3 weeks if we all remain vigilant and do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. Until we can welcome members back to the Y, we are working hard to prepare our facilities and staff to meet the requirements of our state and follow the guidance of local health experts to ensure health and safety. We will communicate our reopening plans as soon as possible. While our Y may open initially with limited services, there is no limit to the appreciation and love we have for our members, and we are grateful to you for continuing to #StaywithUs as we work to provide exceptional service in challenging circumstances.
