YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY - Information updated 8.6.21

A sincere thank you to all members and staff for your continued efforts to protect everyone who utilizes our YMCA buildings and programs. Your health and safety continues to be our top priority.  

In response to an increase in Covid-19 cases in Allegheny and adjoining counties, and in alignment with the most recent recommendations from the CDC, effective Saturday, August 7, the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh strongly recommends the use of masks by members, program participants, visitors and staff at all indoor settings, regardless of age and vaccine status. 

Masks continue to be required by children, visitors and staff at Summer Day Camp, Residential Camp, Early Childhood, Child Watch, Lighthouse and Y Creator Space. (Children under two are exempt.)

As an organization dedicated to the health and well-being of all, the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh thanks everyone for their continued support and understanding. We will continue to be vigilant with hand-washing, deep cleaning and social distancing. Thank you.
