COVID-19 UPDATES

While there have been no confirmed exposure of COVID-19 at our Y, in accordance with closure orders from our local government and in efforts to contain the COVID-19 virus, we have temporarily closed the Cheyenne Family YMCA and suspended programs through April 30.

We will continue to monitor information and follow the guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Wyoming State Department of Health and will reopen our facilities when we can do so safely.

In the meantime, see what our YMCA is doing to help our community during this time of uncertainty and need that includes providing child care for essential workers, virtual social hours for our senior population to keep in touch, and offering our new Virtual YMCA to the entire community for free, to keep everyone healthy and connected with online exercise classes, activities for families and kids and updates along the way.
