WELCOME TO THE Y!
At the Woonsocket Y we strive to be the most welcoming place you have ever been to. Our staff is passionate about helping people reach their goals and love meeting the diverse group of people who come through our doors. Whether you want to play a sport, swim, or learn how to be healthier, we are here with professionally trained staff to assist you. We work collaboratively to ensure that all Y members, no matter their ethnicity, age, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, cultural background, social economic status, race, or ability have the opportunity to experience success and make new friends at the Y. We promote and share the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
What the Y is Doing
- Self-Scan: Members will be asked to self-scan to allow for limited contact entry.
- Designed for Social Distance by Physical Distance: All open areas inside the Y have been evaluated and redesigned where necessary to help to help social distancing by physical distancing between members. Signage will be placed prominently throughout the facility to drive awareness of this requirement.
- Cleaning: In addition to sanitizing equipment by staff and the request of our members to wipe down equipment after use, the facility and equipment will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected each day by using products and processes in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Environmental Protection Agency.
How We’re Asking Members to Help Maintain Safety
- Stay Home If You’re Sick: Members should stay home if they don’t feel well. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state public health officials encourage seniors and members of vulnerable populations, including those with underlying health conditions, to stay at home.
- Bring a Towel, a Mask, and a Water Bottle: Members will be asked to bring their own water bottle and a workout towel (towel services will not be provided). The Y also requests that members bring a mask and wear it whenever possible, especially in common areas where other members are present.
- Keep Your Distance: Please exercise on designated equipment only and respect all signage regarding social distancing. Strive to maintain at least six feet between you and others whenever possible.
- Remember to Wipe Down Equipment: Please help us reduce the risk of exposure by wiping down all equipment, weights, etc. with the provided cleaning materials.
