Mask Advisory, effective July 30, 2021
The YMCA of Greater Boston continues to monitor COVID-19 trends and update our Safe for You, Safe for Us protocols. In following the status of COVID-19, including the recent spread of the Delta variant, and considering all CDC and Massachusetts Department of Public Health guidance, we have updated our mask recommendations to align with the State of Massachusetts mask advisory effective July 30.
Fully Vaccinated individuals are advised to wear a mask when indoors outside of your home if you have a weakened immune system, are at increased risk for COVID-19, or if someone in your household is at increased risk or unvaccinated. Masks are still required for all individuals, including children, who are unvaccinated.
We will continue requiring Y staff to wear masks indoors.
