The Hopkins County Family YMCA will comply with the statewide face mask mandate starting Friday, July 10 at 5 PM in order to remain open for our members – see our full policy here:

Based on Governor Beshear’s Executive Order 2020-586 requiring face masks in the state of Kentucky, the Hopkins County Family YMCA will begin requiring face masks for individuals inside our facilities starting Friday, July 10 at 5 PM.  There are exceptions, consistent with the Governor’s language.  We all have a role to play in protecting public health – including wearing masks and taking other simple steps – amidst ongoing COVID-19 concerns.

The following is our official policy language:

Effective FRIDAY, JULY 10 at 5 PM the Hopkins County Family YMCA is requiring face masks (covering the mouth and nose) for everyone inside our facilities at all time except:

  • Children (ages 0-5) and any individual with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a face covering.
  • When any individual is actively engaging in the following activities:
    • Exercising and/or using equipment on fitness floors
    • Participating in group exercise classes or programs in studios
    • Swimming, seated at the pool deck (as chairs are physically distanced – please do not move), or showering

* The above exceptions mean members/participants should wear face masks until they are on their machine/equipment or in spot for class.  Masks should be worn when moving from machine to machine and when preparing equipment for class.  You may pick up a bag at the front desk to place your mask in.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a critical safety concern.  Masks help prevent the spread.  Failure to comply with the mask mandate will result in you not being able to enter the YMCA.
