COVID-19 Response Update – December 21, 2020

Temporary Closure of Peter Gilgan Family YMCA

Based on direction from the Premier of Ontario today, the province will enter Grey–Lockdown Zone, a “Maximum Measures” state, at 12:01 am on December 26, 2020.

As a result, our Health, Fitness and Aquatics Centre at 410 Rebecca Street, will suspend operations effective 8:00 pm on Wednesday, December 23, 2020.

Membership Payments

We will pause processing future payments from HFA members while we are closed and memberships will be placed on HOLD. Once we reopen, we will adjust accounts accordingly.

Virtual Programming

We encourage you to participate in our virtual programming during this closure:

  • Please try our free online workouts led by YMCA certified fitness instructors
  • For members living with chronic disease or other health and wellness challenges, please visit our free YHealth portal for virtual health management programs instructed by professionals and YMCA certified fitness instructors
  • For your mental health, we offer a variety of free seminars from mental health professionals

Child Care

Our Infant, Pre School and Toddler Licensed Child Care operations will continue without interruption.

Our Licensed Before and After School Programs will align with the requirements of each School Board. As the school boards are mandated to be locked down until January 11, we will be unable to provide this service during the lockdown.

More information will follow in the new year.
