**MASK POLICY UPDATE** 5.19.2021
In accordance with the new guidelines provided by the state of Connecticut and the CDC, starting on Wednesday May 19, the Middlesex YMCA will no longer require members and program participants who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear a mask/face covering while in program areas inside our YMCA, including the fitness center, pools, gymnasium, racquetball courts and while participating in group exercise classes. Masks in COMMON AREAS will be STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.
Wearing a mask in COMMON AREAS which include the lobby, hallways and family locker room are strongly recommended for all members and program participants. These areas are shared with children under the age of 12. Mask wearing in these common areas will help ensure the safety of our entire community here at the Y. Unvaccinated members are asked to follow CDC guideline and wear mask/face covering at all times within the facility. Social Distancing will continue to be encouraged throughout our facility.
We want to thank all our members who over the past year have supported our staff and cooperated with all the various regulations our Y has followed to ensure our members safety. Your continued messaging to our staff of gratitude and joy to be able to be back at the Y has kept our spirits high. As we continue to progress forward, we humbly ask all patrons to respect each other's individual circumstances in regards to their personal decision to continue to wear a mask. Sincerely, The Middlesex YMCA Team
