Spokane YMCAs Temporarily Closed – pools open Nov 23

UPDATE! After working with Washington State and Local officials to fully understand the 4-week closure announced this past weekend, we have learned that the closure does not include our aquatics facilities. We are happy to announce that the pools at our Spokane Branches will reopen on Monday, November 23rd for lap swimming, aqua jogging, independent water exercise, private swim lessons, Novice Swim team (North), and Family Swim Time. (Pools will be closed for the Thanksgiving weekend, Nov 26-29)

Litehouse YMCA in Sandpoint, ID remains OPEN with normal hours and accessibility. Pool & Group Exercise reservations are still required.

And Remember:

  • Health screening questions are required for each visit – plan ahead for longer check-in times.
  • Face masks or coverings are required to be worn by anyone 3 years and older throughout the facility and on the pool deck, but should not be worn while in the water. You may remove your face covering while actively exercising.
  • Effective October 1st at the Spokane Y Branches, the use of neck gaiters/buffs, will be strongly advised against. This is no longer a preferable face covering. As seen on the CDC website, there is ongoing evaluation regarding the efficacy of gaiters in reducing the spread of the virus.
  • Effective October 1st at the Spokane Y Branches, face shields will no longer be allowed on their own. A person must wear a mask under the face shield, or wear a face shield with a drape. A bandana affixed to the bottom of a face shield is acceptable. The primary function is to reduce or eliminate aerosols from a person’s mouth or nose from passing beyond the face shield and drape.
  • Bring your own towel
    • Please come dressed and ready to swim as locker rooms will only be available for bathroom use and a 10-minute period AFTER your swim session for a shower and changing if needed.
    • All swimmers will be required to shower before entering the water using the pool deck shower.
    • You will have access to the pool for your reservation time only. Please show up on time and be ready to exit the pool area at the end of your session.
    • The lifeguard will blast their whistle 3 times at the end of each session. Please exit the pool and gather your belongings.
    • 2 people per lane per hour for lap swim and aqua jogging. Swimmers in the same lane will start from opposite ends to ensure physical distancing. Family members must each reserve their own time slot.
    • Five people per hour for independent exercise in the Recreational/Warm Water Pools. Family members may not share a reservation, each must reserve their own time slot.
