Health Screening Questions

How is the Y screening members entering the facility?

  • All members will have a temperature check done before entering the facility as well as answer our wellness questions. IMPORTANT: If you answer YES to any of the following questions, you should not enter our facility:

1. Are you currently experiencing:

  • A fever (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) or a sense of having a fever.
  • A new cough that cannot be attributed to another health condition.

What Is The Y Doing To Keep Me Safe?

  • Traffic Flow- Members must enter at our San Jose entrance and exit at our magnolia lobby. We will regulate one way traffic flow where possible.
  • Temperature Checks- Staff and members will receive temperature checks before entering our facility. 
  • Why Are You Taking Temperatures? What happens if my temperature is over 100.4?- We are taking temperatures as recommended by the CDC to ensure anyone with a fever does not enter our facilities. If your temperature is over 100.4, you will be required to leave the facility and return after being symptom free for 72 hrs. 
  • Personal protective Equipment For All Staff- All staff will be required to wear face coverings while serving members. Members are required to wear a face covering when at the facility EXCEPT when engaged in physical exercise or while training.
  • New Spacing- We have marked off equipment that will not be allowed to support social distancing. We have also rearranged some of our environments to support this as well.
  • Cleaning- We have deep cleaned the facility and updated our cleaning procedures. We will also be closing our facility during the day for three hours of deep cleaning Monday- Friday. You will see all of staff cleaning throughout the day to provide a clean and sanitized workout space. 
  • How often is the Y and the equipment being cleaned? Staff will clean and disinfect all high touch areas frequently . Members will be asked to clean the machines and equipment before and after use. Staff will clean all areas in between reservations. A deep clean of all areas within the YMCA will take place every night after closing. 
  • Sanitation- Hand sanitizer will be available before entry of each room.

What Should I Bring With Me?

How Did You Make Decisions About Your Safety Protocols?

The safety and well-being of everyone in our community is our top priority. We are following all national, state and local guidelines for reopening. We've ensured our facilities meet the highest standards for cleanliness and safety, and we have modified our procedures and programs to facilitate safe social distancing practices.

How Are You Ensuring The Y Does Not Become Too Crowded?

Members will be required to make a reservation prior to entering our facility. Members can reserve a lap swim lane, access to the cardio or strength rooms, or a spot in our group exercise classes. Reservations can be made 48 hours in advance.

What Safety Protocols Are Staff Required To Follow?

  • Staff are required to wear face coverings when interacting with members or other staff.
