Dear Y Family, 

The staff has been hard at work preparing to welcome you back this Friday, but we learned from Governor Roy Cooper last night that gyms are not included in NC's phase 2. This means we cannot open our YMCA facilities as planned at this time. 

We are disappointed and hurting with you because we know that our fitness centers improve health and give us the opportunity to connect face-to-face with people we care about. However, it's the love we have for our members and communities that compels us to follow the path that our state has provided to reopen with safety at the forefront. 

While the doors of our fitness center remains closed for now, we are consulting with experts about how to stay in compliance with the new executive order, while at the same time our staff is creatively adapting to our current reality and finding ways to serve you through outdoor fitness and camps. We look forward to communicating those plans as soon as they are in place.

We're grateful for your understanding and for the concern you've shared. Where there's a Y, there's a way. We will find a way through this, together. 

Thank you for #StayingWithUs.




Kathie Davis
Executive Director
