YMCA closing all locations until March 31 due to COVID-19

The Guthrie YMCA and all other Y locations will be closing their locations until March 31 due to the ongoing concerns of COVID-19.

In a release, the YMCA says they take pride in bringing the community together, this decision has been very difficult, but these are unprecedented times. In order to support community efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of all those we serve, especially those at most risk, we’ve made the decision to temporarily close all of the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City locations effective at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17.

All group exercise classes, Child Watch and other programs and services are postponed immediately. Locations will continue to operate their Spring Break Vacation Care on Tues., March 17 to allow parents the time to find alternate care and for staff to determine how to move forward with childcare for the remainder of the week.

“We understand that the closure of our facilities may feel abrupt, however we know it is the right decision under these extraordinary circumstances. We are in close contact with local government and health officials to monitor the situation and to determine when we can reopen. We will continue to update our website to keep you informed.”

Additional Information:
• Those currently enrolled in Before and After School: Any credit will be applied toward future payments when the program resumes.
• Those currently enrolled in youth sports and aquatics have two choices: We expect programs to resume soon, but if not, you can consider your program fees a donation to the Y’s ongoing mission to serve community or take a credit toward future programming in the 2020 calendar year.
• All members also have a choice. We ask that you continue to pay your membership fee so that we can continue to provide necessary services for children, families and adults across central Oklahoma. If this is your choice – thank you. No actions are necessary. If you would like to do something different, we are able to assist you. Please email communications@ymcaokc.org with your questions and concerns.
