AT THE Y, WE HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF GERMS BY:

  • Regular sanitizing with a high tech fogging machine in all childcare areas
  • Nightly deep cleaning for the entire facility after close
  • Locker room deep cleaning throughout the day during peak business hours
  • Volunteers specifically focused on cleaning high traffic areas and fitness room equipment
  • Group Exercise and Water Exercise instructors reminding and encouraging members to clean equipment/machines before and after use
  • Having a reasonable stock of sanitizer and cleaning products on hand to accommodate growing demand
  • Fitness and Membership staff spending additional time cleaning machines and high traffic areas

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing (if tissues are not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow). It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Practice good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
  • In your home and at work, frequently clean door handles and high-touch areas (while wearing protective rubber gloves) with disinfecting wipes. Also, remember to frequently clean all portable electronic devices.
  • When you are at the Y, use a disinfectant wipe to clean equipment before and after each use.
  • When you are sick, stay home. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Stay informed through trusted sources, such as the WHO and CDC
