It has not been determined when the other phases will begin, but they include:
- group exercise classes

- child watch
- youth sports programs

“When we closed our facilities in March, we did so to protect the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers, members, and participants. As we reopen our facilities, we do so with that same commitment to keeping everyone who enters our doors safe,” said Paula Anderson, chief operating officer at the YMCA of Central Kentucky.
To prepare for the reopening, the Y is adapting facilities and procedures to meet guidelines by the CDC and the Commonwealth of Kentucky. To meet these goals of hygiene and safety fitness equipment and areas, locker and restrooms, common areas and office spaces will be cleaned and sanitized.
“The YMCA of Central Kentucky has served this community for the past 167 years, during which we have made it through many challenging times together, none perhaps as impactful for our community and our Y as this COVID crisis,” said Anderson.“We are thrilled to begin reopening our facilities, welcoming back our members and the community, and getting back to what we do best – helping everyone reach their full potential.”
The C.M. Gatton Beaumont YMCA will be open Monday-Friday from 5:30 am – 8 pm, Saturday 6 am – 6 pm, and Sunday from 10 am – 6 pm.
