EUGENE, Ore. – The Eugene Family YMCA will be reopening their doors on Wednesday.

The flow of the facility has been changed to allow for social distancing, and equipment has been spread out to give members more space.

“We want to make sure that as individuals come back to the Y that there’s clarity around the safety measures we are taking,” said CEO Brian Steffen. “There’s visibility around the precautions. There is an understanding of how they can protect themselves and the part the YMCA is playing to support their health as well."

The aquatic center is still closed, and there will be no towel service. Members are asked to bring their own.

All staff members will be wearing a mask and there are handwashing stations throughout the facility.

Online exercise classes will continue to be offered.

"We want the community to be as safe and healthy as possible,” said Director of Health and Wellness Kim Miller. “We jumped on board right away with virtual classes, trying to meet them where they are at. Now that the government is allowing us to reopen and Oregon is starting to come back, we want to do that in a safe and positive way because we know not everything can be done at home.”

The YMCA of Douglas County reopened on Monday.
