What the Y is Doing:
STAYING INFORMED & VIGILANT
Our Association Leadership has been monitoring the situation to ensure we are kept well informed on prevention measures and prepared for the potential impacts of the virus.
ENSURING EFFECTIVE PRODUCTS
The products used to clean common spaces and surfaces at our Ys are effective in preventing the spread of common viruses, including COVID-19.
We have increased our cleaning protocols and staff will be giving extra attention to frequently touched surfaces such as equipment, countertops, doorknobs, light switches, flush levers, and sinks.
How You Can Help:
STAY HOME IF YOU ARE FEELING UNWELL
Staying home and resting will help you recover more quickly when you are ill and will further prevent the spread of illness.
WIPE OFF EQUIPMENT
Before and after using exercise equipment, please wipe the surfaces with the provided spray and paper towels.
CLEAN HANDS REGULARLY
Keep hands clean by washing with soap and water for 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your face/nose/eyes/mouth.
COVER YOUR COUGH/SNEEZE
Make sure to cough/sneeze into your arm or a tissue to prevent the spread of germs through the air. Please also wash your hands after coughing/sneezing to prevent leaving germs behind on surfaces.
TRUST THE EXPERTS
Above all else, we encourage our members to pay close attention to the precautionary measures and the most accurate, up-to-date information surrounding COVID-19 as laid out by the Centers for Disease Control, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and the World Health Organization.
Thank you for partnering with us to help keep our Y community healthy.
