Safety at the Y

The team at the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA prioritizes your health and safety! Good health is part of our Mission at the Y, so our main focus since reopening has been on creating a safe environment for you to strengthen your mind and body. We have made many decisions with this focus at the center, including:
  • moving equipment for better social distancing
  • requiring booked appointments for some services
  • cleaning and sanitizing more frequently
  • requiring face coverings and health screenings for all members and staff
  • establishing a facility capacity that we enforce with member scans and reservations
  • increasing the amount of towels and spray for members to wipe their equipment
  • surpassing all building codes and requirements with our air ventilation system

Member of the Month

Dr. John Buday
"There are so many things I like about the Y but the people really stand out. The athletic department and personal trainers are really first rate. I highly recommend the trainers no matter what level of conditioning you are at. My trainer Vance has done a great job pushing me to a new level of fitness. I am also impressed how the Y promotes health and wellness on so many levels including providing food to members of our community who otherwise might go hungry."
