Connecticut YMCAs detail what’s available, what’s not in Monday’s reopening

Hartford

Conn. (WTNH) — YMCAs across Connecticut are reopening their doors Monday for the first time since mid-March, and it’s going to look a little different.

The Connecticut Alliance of YMCAs announced its plans to reopen their centers and camps at a press conference at Dunkin Donuts Park in Hartford.

A part of their reopening plan is checking temperatures before you enter, wearing a face mask in common areas like the lobby, bathrooms and weight rooms. They’ve also added more hand sanitizing stations

Here’s what’s available starting today:

  • Wellness Center (cardio, strength and free weights)
  • Pool (lap swim and family swim)
  • Limited Group Fitness classes (virtually and outside)
  • Personal & small group training (outside and inside)
  • Summer Camp (beginning June 22)

What will remain unavailable:

  • Locker rooms (Available for restroom use only)
  • Babysitting (Kids Corner)
  • Basketball, Pickleball, Open Gym and Indoor Track
  • Steam rooms
  • Saunas

You’ll have to bring your own exercise or yoga mat if you plan to use one, and bring a water bottle — water fountains will be unavailable except for refilling your water bottle.

Another change is having to make reservations. Since they’ll be operating at a limited capacity, you’ll need to reserve a spot for things like Group Fitness Classes, Personal Training and swimming laps in the pool.

Other reopenings happening today across the state include the Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven for members.
