We are open and can't wait to see you.

Over the last several months, we have worked diligently to prepare our facilities while putting your safety first. We are currently operating at limited capacity (as required by the state) and following all local, state and national guidelines. 

Hours vary by branch. View locations here. 

We are keeping our members’ and staff’s health and safety at the forefront. For more details, please review the below information, and check back here often for updates.

What to Expect and How You Can Help

  • Most importantly, if you are not feeling well or have come into contact with someone with COVID-19, please stay home! Help us keep our Y communities safe and healthy.
  • Face coverings are required at all times, including during exercise (as required by the governor's latest executive order).

  • Guests may be allowed on a limited capacity, pending branch capacity.
  • At this time, we are only allowing nationwide members from North Carolina and southern Virginia.
  • We will be conducting wellness and temperature checks of all who enter the facility. Members will be screened for COVID-19 exposure and/or symptoms prior to entering the Y. These questions include:
    • Have you had close contact (within 6 feet for at least 10 minutes) in the last 14 days with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, or has any health department been in contact with you and advised you to quarantine?
    • In the last 72 hours, have you had a fever or felt feverish, had any muscle aches, chills, or respiratory symptoms, including runny nose, sore throat, cough, or shortness of breath; or developed a new loss of taste or smell?
