How the Y is Helping the Community Stay Healthy & Safe

With our extraordinary health and safety precautions, the West Suburban YMCA has been able to provide our community ways to stay active and focus on their physical and mental wellbeing. View a brief overview from President & CEO Jack Fucci about how we ensure the safest possible experience when you visit the Y.

Health & Safety

We're taking extraordinary precautions to welcome our members back to the Y safely. This includes:

  • Building flow and equipment layout to promote social distancing.
  • An updated ventilation and air filtration system that is consistent with CDC/EPA recommendations, and replacement of filters occurring 3x as often as before COVID-19.
  • Rigorous cleaning with EPA registered products that meet criteria for effectiveness in killing COVID-19 and other viral pathogens.
  • Daily use of the industry gold-standard electrostatic sprayers.
  • Two new sinks for hand washing installed in the lobby to promote good hand hygiene.
  • Over 20 hand sanitizer dispensers installed throughout the building and outside.

Keeping You Informed

Our Y is working hard to keep you safe during this difficult time. We are vigilant with our cleaning/sanitizing regimen, enforcing hand hygiene, and requiring social distancing.

Along with our intense cleaning, sanitizing and other health and safety precautions, we rely on and coordinate with the local Board of Health (BOH). Should we be made aware that a visitor to our Y tested positive for COVID-19, we would immediately contact the Newton Department of Health and Human Services (NHHS). From there, NHHS would determine what level of contact tracing is required and notify those who are considered close contacts of the positive case and provide instructions regarding testing, self-quarantine, and self-monitoring. It is the role of the NHHS to develop the necessary action steps to help limit and stop the spread of the virus.

The West Suburban YMCA cannot disclose any additional information to the public or its members. The Y coordinates with NHHS which will guide us in our efforts to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
