WAUSAU — The YMCAs in Wausau and Weston will resume more membership benefits during phase two of reopening since the coronavirus pandemic spread across the country, the YMCA announced today.

Programs reopening include mini care drop in child care for up to one hour per day, youth access by appointment, reservations for limited basketball, racquetball and pickleball play and limited instructor-led group exercise.

Members will still use the Y’s new Appointment King reservation software to use pools and tracks or workout in the wellness centers. Members will be able to extend their 45-minute appointment on the same day, if space allows.

The YMCA will increase phase two facility hours beginning June 15. YMCA branches will open at 5 a.m. Monday through Friday, also allowing members to use the pools an hour earlier each week day.

“Thanks to all our members have done to follow our reopening guidelines, helping to maintain social distance around others and using personal sanitization kits for each visit, we are able to safely roll out more of their favorite YMCA features in phase two, starting next week,” said Vice President of Operations Jessica Mowrer in a news release. “It has truly been a team effort between staff and members to keep health and safety at the forefront.” 

The Health & Wellness team will continue to provide virtual fitness classes through the YMCA website, YouTube and Facebook.
