DENTON — The Caroline County Family YMCA welcomed guests back Saturday, June 20. “We are open for business!” said Angel Perez, Program Coordinator.
The Caroline County Family YMCA has been actively preparing for re-opening for the last month or so by adding signage, temporarily closings in high-contact areas, conducting a full facility deep clean, and moving equipment and furniture to promote social distancing.
“The past few months have been hard not being able to share with our members who, in one way or another, have become part of our family. I am happy that we have the opportunity to re-open our doors and be able to continue offering our services to our community,” said Perez.
All safety and health precautions have been fully implemented and policies and procedures are in place, as required by state and local health departments, as well as to meet our own very high YMCA standards. This includes rigorous training of YMCA staff to ensure they are fully prepared to welcome members back in a manner consistent with our many new health and safety protocols.
“We’ve been anxiously awaiting this day and are so happy that it’s finally here. We have spent a lot of time re-working our facility and our policies and procedures to ensure that we’re creating a safe space for our members to continue their wellness journeys. As we continue moving forward we’ll look forward to re-implementing regular hours and services but for now, we’re just excited to be serving our members once again,” said Brian Byrnes, Executive Director.
Starting June 20, the Denton based YMCA is open with limited hours while working on what is the “new normal”. This will give staff the opportunity to review our practices and protocols on a daily basis and make changes to better serve our members as needed, noted Perez.
