 UPDATE: 6/10/21

We appreciate all that our staff and members have done to keep the Y safe during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Serving the community and the safety and health of our employees, members, and guests are always the Y’s main priority. The Y continues to follow the guidance set forth by the CDC, Illinois Department of Public Health, and Cook County Health Department and has updated the guidelines based on Illinois moving to Phase 5, and room capacities can return to pre-Covid.

Changes taking place Monday, June 14th

  • All areas of the Y will be open for congregation.
  • Reservations will not be required for the fitness center, weight room, and group ex classes.
  • The fitness equipment will remain spaced for social distance. If there is a piece of equipment still in storage, please let Megan Vazquez know (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )
  • All treadmills will be available for use.
  • Lap swim, Racquetball, and personal training will still require reservations.

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) recently updated its guidance for fully vaccinated people, indicating that they can resume numerous activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
