The Latest News from Our Y Concerning COVID 19


All YMCA Programs Closed March 18th - 27th


YMCA families,

During the nationwide coronavirus crisis, our goal has been to stay open to serve YMCA Utah families in need. However, we have consistently stated that we would only do so if it was safe for our families and staff and that we would follow local health department and CDC Recommendations. At 4:00 PM today, the White House and CDC officially recommended that all gatherings of more than 10 people cease until March 27th. 

Effective Wednesday, March 18th, all YMCA programs and buildings are closed to participants until March 27th. We recognize that many families are dependent on the YMCA for childcare and will continue to provide emergency childcare for current Preschool and Afterschool families on Tuesday March 17th to allow time to find alternate care. All slots for these camps are full and will not be taking additional registrations at this time. 

If schools are closed beyond March 27th, we will re-evaluate recommendations from our local health departments and the CDC. We promise to keep you updated and informed about YMCA decisions regarding this matter. You can stay updated by visiting our website or following us on Facebook or Instagram

Thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times. 

- YMCA of Northern Utah
