Update on YMCA


Thank you all for tuning into this very important message. PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE as it contains important information throughout. 
As many of you know, the COVID-19 situation remains ever-changing on a global, national, state, and local level. With that being said, the decision has been made to close our facilities. Specifically, the Martinsville YMCA will be closed effective at the end of day March 17, 2020 and will not reopen until at least March 30, 2020. Child Care will remain open until Friday, March 20, 2020 and close until at least March 29, 2020. During the time of closure, child care will ONLY be offered to preschool and elementary aged children of Emergency Care Employees, i.e. Hospice, 9-1-1, Fire and EMS, Medical Staff, etc. A separate letter will be issued out to Child Care Parents with a list of other child care locations that may offer care during this time. 
We hope that we can reopen everything on the 30th as normal; but the health and wellness of our community is important to us and if the date needs to be extended, we will do so. We understand that our decision to temporarily close the facilities is not ideal; however, it has been noted that gyms and daycares are high risk areas for the spread of the virus, and we truly believe that a short term hiatus is better than long term consequences. This decision was not made lightly, but we want to do everything in our power to slow the spread of this virus and protect the health and well-being of our community and staff. Our leadership will continue to meet, consult, and monitor the situation so that we make the most informed decisions possible throughout this uncertain time. Expect regular updates via our website, social media, and email. 
Though we are temporarily closing our physical locations, we are working hard to offer you continued value to support your health during this time. These services include workouts you can do from home, tips for staying healthy, and access to online video resources from certified experts. Please check our website and/or your email for more information about these services. 
The YMCA is a nonprofit charity organization, and membership dues and donations are the foundation for much of the work we do. Our plan is to continue to pay our staff for as long as we can while we are closed, and to do that we will need your support. We ask that you consider keeping your membership active and utilize our digital membership resources to aid your ability to stay healthy and our ability to serve our community. However, we understand if you would like to put your membership on hold and we can do that starting in April if you wish. For questions about membership, please contact Kristen Harms at [email protected] (please no phone calls, since we will be working remotely).
Together we are a stronger community. Thank you for your continued support and loyalty to the YMCA; especially during this trying time. We look forward to resuming full operations as soon as possible.


Thank You, 


Your YMCA Family
