Frequently Asked Questions | Your Safety Is Our Priority

What is the Y’s reopening plan?

We are excited to open our doors soon! The Y is considered an indoor recreation facility, which is eligible to open in Phase 3 in Pierce and Kitsap counties. Once each county is approved to enter this phase, we will announce opening dates for our facilities. Visit ymcapkc.org/welcomeback for the latest updates and see how you can prepare to return!

Will the pool open when the Y reopens?

Aquatics centers will remain closed when we reopen based on capacity restrictions and staff resources available. We will evaluate upon reopening and likely reopen aquatics centers three or four weeks after buildings open. This includes hot tubs, steam rooms, and saunas.

Will people 65 and older and those who are high-risk be able to visit the Y upon reopening?

We are thrilled to share that the state has removed this limitation and we are able to welcome individuals of all ages into our facilities when we open!
