Preventing the Spread of COVID-19

At the Two Rivers YMCA we take your health and the safety of our community very seriously. We are adhering to the guidelines set forth by the Illinois Governor in the Restore Illinois Plan. 

In alignment with the State of Illinois's Phase 4, the Y is currently operating in Phase 2 of its own Reopening Plan as of June 26th. 

On November 20th, the State of Illinois Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigation plan takes effect as outlined by the Governor here. The Two Rivers YMCA has made temporary adjustments to follow the more restrictive Tier 3 Mitigations; these adjustments are noted below as an “UPDATE:”.

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
