What to expect while working at the YMCA during COVID-19.

The YMCA of Greater San Antonio’s priority is to provide wellness facilities, programs, and services in a safe and effective manner. The YMCA’s COVID-19 plan prioritizes the health and well-being of our members, staff, and the communities we serve, taking into account CDC guidelines and the guidelines and recommendations of state and local government authorities.

YMCA employees will be screened each day before entering any of our facilities or locations.

We will send home any employee who has any of the following new or worsening signs of possible COVID-19:

We will not allow employees with the new or worsening signs or symptoms listed above to return to work until:

  • Any staff tested for a fever of 100 will be asked to leave the facility and not return to work for 72 hours.
    They must also have a doctor’s note to return to work.

  • Any staff member who tests positive for COVID-19, can return to work as long as they no longer have a fever(without the use of medication that reduces fever), AND other symptoms have improved(cough or shortness of breath). Staff is required to provide a doctor’s note to return to work.
