COVID Policies and Information

Policy Update

Per the Governor's most recent executive order as of February 28, 2022, masks are no longer required at the YMCA. You may wear a mask if you choose to. For the latest guidance visit portal.ct.gov.

Please remember...

  • In general, be kind and give people their space.
  • As cute as your face is, don’t touch it.
  • Wash your hands a lot and make it last 20 seconds.
  • Wipe down exercise equipment.

COVID-19 Screening Policy

Please review these COVID-19 screening questions before visiting. If you answer yes to any of these questions you are not permitted to enter Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA facilities.

  • Do you have a cough, shortness of breath or any other cold or flu symptoms not assessed and cleared by your primary physician?
  • Have you knowingly been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19?
  • Did you or someone in your household get a COVID-19 test (not related to regular screening or medical procedure) and are you or your household member waiting for test results? 

Programs and Classes

All regularly scheduled programs and classes are running as scheduled. In the event a program must postponed due to COVID, we will make it up. Program directors will be in touch with participants as information becomes available.

Any program or fitness classes not held for holidays or due to inclement weather are not refundable nor transferable. 


Cleaning and Disinfecting

The Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA is committed to maintaining a safe and clean environment. We will continue our stringent cleaning and disinfecting protocols throughout all areas of Y facilities and program sites. The Y will only use products that meet the EPA’s criteria for use against the virus that causes COVID-19. We will be using the Electrostatic Sprayer daily. We also ask members to please wipe down machines before and after use. If you use a mat, shower, etc. you must spray and wipe down after usage. Frequent handwashing and hand sanitizing should also be practiced while at the YMCA.


As always the safety of our members, staff and guests is our priority. We reserve the right to make changes to our policies as needed as new information becomes available from the State of Connecticut and our local health department. We will communicate any changes to you.
