YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY

The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh’s priority is to provide wellness facilities, programs and services in a safe and effective manner. The YMCA’s Reopening Roadmap prioritizes the health and well-being of our members, staff and the communities we serve, using both CDC guidelines and the guidelines and recommendations of state and our local government authorities. To ensure all decisions are informed by the most up-to-date and relevant public health information, the Y has assembled a COVID-19 Member Services Task Force composed of branch executives, core service leaders, YMCA of USA Medical Experts, Local health experts and senior leadership representation.  This team will provide unique domain knowledge and guidance, unbiased perspectives, and critical thinking as the Y implements the outlined reopening plan.

The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh branches, facilities, programs and services will reopen in three phases, following assumptions for operations as they relate to the global coronavirus pandemic and its local implications on public health. Meeting health and community needs will be focused and balanced on preventing the spread of COVID-19.
