COLORADO SPRINGS — The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region will begin reopening on Monday, June 15.

The reopening will be directed under the guidance of state and local health authorities and will take place in phases.

“The Pikes Peak YMCA has served this community for more than 141 years, during which we
have made it through many challenging times together, none perhaps as impactful for our
community and our Y as this COVID crisis,” said Boyd Williams, President & CEO of the
YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region. “We are thrilled to begin reopening our facilities, welcoming
back our members and getting back to what we do best – helping everyone reach their
fullest potential.”

According to the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region, they have been following guidelines from health experts and local officials to ensure all components of facilities such as fitness equipment and all related fitness and wellness areas, locker rooms, child care, visitor areas, and office spaces, are cleaned and sanitized to meet the highest standards for hygiene and safety.

“When we closed our facilities in March, we did so to protect the health and well-being of all
our staff, volunteers, members, and program participants. As we now reopen our facilities,
we do so with that same commitment to keeping everyone who enters our doors safe,” said
Williams.

The ‘Y’ has also modified policies and programs to facilitate safe social and physical distancing practices.
