What other health measures are you taking?
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before class to complete a health screening. Your temperature will be checked, and we will ask you to review and acknowledge a Health Declaration, which includes questions about your travel history. Please stay home if you’re sick. All equipment provided by the Y will be cleaned before and after use, and sanitizing wipes will be available. Read more about what to expect.

What if it is too hot or there is bad weather?
We will be in touch, by phone or email, about any cancellations due to inclement weather. You will receive a refund if we cancel a class.

Is child care available during class?
No, child care will not be available. Children are welcome for our family classes, but not during adult classes.

Are you opening for indoor classes?
Not yet. But we are exploring all options to serve our members and community in the best way possible.

Will the pool be open soon?
The government is not allowing indoor pools to open yet in NYC. We hope that changes soon and are exploring pool programming options for when it does.

Why don’t you have classes at more branches?
Unfortunately, due to limited space it is just not possible to offer outdoor classes at all our branches. But we are actively exploring ways to run classes and other programs in as many of our communities as possible. You are also welcome to participate in any outdoor class at any of our locations.
