YMCA REOPENING UPDATE - PHASE 2

Updated: May 29

Thank you for sticking with us during these uncertain times. Your support does, and will continue to, make a difference to those in our community whom we serve. Without our loyal members, we would not be able to continue serving the Minot community and surrounding areas just as we have for the past 76 years.

Following the guidelines set in place by the state of North Dakota and the CDC, we are continuing to open in phases as we reinstate and train our team. Our guidelines are still in place for Phase 1 of our reopening. These guidelines are available here.

We will be moving into Phase 2 of reopening our Y starting June 1, 2020. Please read the following carefully as some of our policies have changed:
