Facility Closure 3/16/20 – 3/31/20

Dear Hobart Family YMCA Members & Participants,

At the Hobart Family YMCA, the safety and well-being of our members, staff, volunteers and the community beyond have always been and will always be a top priority.

We have been attentively monitoring all national and local updates surrounding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) prevalent disease. To ensure the health of our entire Y community, we have decided to close the Hobart Family YMCA to the public effective March 16 at 6:00 pm through at least March 31. We will have opportunities for staff to continue working to help support their families.

The decision to close the Hobart Family YMCA has been made to best ensure the safety of everyone. We understand that closing our facility will affect our community. We appreciate your continued support as our staff works diligently through these challenging times. We will have opportunities for staff to continue working to help support their families.

During this closure, you can expect regular updates from our website www.hobartymca.org and our social media. We know that staying fit and active is our best way to build a strong immune system and stay healthy. To stay active, here is a free virtual class option to help keep you active and working out at home. There are even classes to engage the whole family: (https://watch.lesmillsondemand.com/at-home-workouts). This will be free and remain available as long as the disruption from Coronavirus continues.

We ask everyone to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/) guidelines and take their own measures to protect themselves, including not putting themselves in situations with large crowds or where they come in close contact with others, staying home if they do not feel well, frequently washing their hands with soap and water and covering their coughs and sneezes.

We will continue to work with the health department and local physicians to determine what other actions, if any, would be prudent on our part and when it will be safe to reopen our facilities. We will assess the situation and communicate the next step plans after March 31.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this evolving and challenging situation. We look forward to serving our community as soon as possible.
