The Altru Family YMCA is opening up a few more services Monday, June 15, as it moves toward a complete reopening of the facility.

Additional services include the start of swim lessons and water exercise classes, and the opening of the boys and girls locker rooms, said Patti McEnroe, membership and marketing director.

Towel service is not yet available, so patrons are asked to bring them from home.

Everyone who visits the Y is asked to follow the safety and sanitary guidelines that have been put in place, McEnroe said, “and it’s especially important to continue to social distance, wash your hands frequently, and wear a face mask when it is impossible to social distance.”

Since May 18, the facility has re-opened the fitness areas, gyms, racquetball courts, restrooms, group fitness studios and some in-house and online classes, the pool, family locker rooms, adult locker rooms, and other services, she said.


“We are looking forward to expanding our class offerings and opening the rest of the facility soon,” McEnroe said, “and we are carefully following local, state and federal guidelines on the safest way to do that.”
