We are very excited to welcome you back to the Fredericton YMCA on Monday, June 8! Please note that before you come in, you will need a face mask to enter and travel through the building. You will also pass through a screening station where you will answer 3 COVID-19 related questions and have your temperature taken. Once you're inside, we ask that you respect physical distancing as much as possible.
Members do not have to wear a mask at all times when they are on the floor of our Wellness Centre, Fitness Classes or Pool — only when physical distancing cannot be guaranteed.
The Government of New Brunswick has made wearing masks in public buildings mandatory starting on Tuesday, June 9. For more information on this story, please check out this article from @CBCNews: https://bit.ly/2XzljO0

Changes to the Facility
We have been working very hard to have our facility ready for you! You will notice some changes around the building that are designed to keep our members and staff safe. We appreciate your patience and co-operation while we all adjust to the changes that have been implemented. Some of these changes include:
- All members will be screened upon entry to the building. Each member must answer NO to the COVID-19 screening questions and have their temperature taken using a non-contact thermometer. Any member who has a temperature of 38c will not be allowed to use the facility.
- All members are required to physically distance by a minimum of 2 metres/6 feet at all times while in the facility.
- Water fountains are only available to fill water bottles, please remember to bring a re-fillable bottle from home.
- The Wellness Centre has been re-configured to ensure there is 2 metres/6 feet between all equipment. All equipment must be cleaned BEFORE and AFTER use.
For more information on changes and program offerings, please see our COVID-19 FAQ document on our website.
With the re-opening of our facility, membership payments will resume beginning on June 9, according to your previous payment schedule (i.e. if your payments were previously every other Friday, this will continue to be the case).
We understand that you may not be ready to return to the facility at this time. As a charity, the YMCA of Fredericton relies on memberships and donations in order to continue to serve our community. We ask that you consider staying with us, and maintaining your membership during this time to help us in achieving our goal of supporting healthy people for healthy communities.
We have extended our Hold Policy for those who are not ready to re-join us and wish to hold their payments. Members are able to put their membership on hold for up to 3 months, despite whether you’ve previously had your membership on hold in the current year. Membership Hold Requests can be made in-person, over the phone, or online (see instructions below). We require 2 business days’ notice ahead of your next scheduled membership payment to process your request.

The YMCA of Fredericton will delay its re-opening until Monday June 8, 2020, following the official announcement made by the Government of New Brunswick on May 28. The province’s transition to the yellow phase of the Recovery Plan has been postponed by one week in light of the new cases of COVID-19 in the Campbellton/Zone 5 Region.
“It is disappointing, but the health and safety of our staff and members comes first.” said Jason Dickson, President and CEO of the YMCA of Fredericton.
The Y hopes to re-open on June 8 but must follow the direction of the government as the situation develops and will be set to resume operations when it is safe to do so.
Please continue to follow the YMCA online and on social media to receive the most up-to-date information on the re-opening.
