Preventing the Spread of COVID-19

As of June 11, 2021 the State of Illinois has successfully moved into Phase 5. 
Details from the state can be found here: http://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/phase-5

The CDC announced on May 12, 2021 that fully vaccinated individuals "can resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance." [source]


The Illinois State Governor has reinstated a mask mandate:
"Beginning on Monday, August 30, 2021, all individuals in Illinois who are age two or over and able to medically tolerate a face covering shall be required to cover their nose and mouth with a face covering when in an indoor public place." [source] 

Have peace of mind knowing every precaution is in place to keep you and your family safe and healthy while at our Y.

The Y is for #youthdevelopment #healthyliving and #socialresponsibility
