Addition to the Mankato Family YMCA Membership Code of Conduct

The following is the Mankato Family YMCA’s addendum to the Membership Code of Conduct in response to COVID-19. The danger of exposure to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 exists. This list outlines the safety protocols each member is expected to follow. The Mankato Family YMCA will follow CDC and State guidelines for physically distancing and cleaning protocols to ensure the safety of our members and the community. This list does not replace the Member Code of Conduct signed at the time of sign-up; it is in addition to those expectations. These expectations are subject to review and change as the mandate for safety during this pandemic change.

  • Agree not to come to the Y if I am feeling sick, or exhibiting any illness symptoms such as cough or fever.
