Facility FAQs

To prioritize the health and safety of our members and staff, we have put new protocols in place including making changes to our hours, classes and services.

Are masks required?

Following guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), and in light of declining COVID-19 rates in the Twin Cities and the lifting of mask mandates in Minneapolis and St. Paul, we are taking the following steps to best serve our diverse audiences, effective Saturday, Feb. 26:

  • YWCA Minneapolis fitness members and visitors to our fitness centers will no longer be required to wear a mask while in our facilities
  • We strongly recommend face masks be worn by all fitness members and visitors while in our facilities, regardless of vaccination status

Are there any protocols around pool use?

  • Towel rentals are not available, so please bring your own towel.
  • Showering is required before entry into the pool. Please use the deck or locker room showers.
  • Kickboards, fins, pull buoys, noodles and water fitness equipment will not be provided. Please arrange to bring your own if needed.
  • Water fountains on deck are unavailable for member use, so water bottles should be filled before entry to the pool area.
  • Swimmers are expected to store swim equipment in designated areas and stop only at the assigned end.
  • To provide necessary spacing, swimmers will start in alternating shallow and deep ends of the pool, and use these ends as their primary resting areas.
