Late on 5/13, the CDC announced that individuals fully vaccinated for COVID-19 no longer need to wear a mask while indoors. Shortly after the CDC announcement, the Oregon Health Authority announced that effective immediately, anyone fully vaccinated for COVID-19 is not subject to the state Mask Order, which remains in effect until 70 percent of Oregonians are vaccinated.
In accordance with this announcement, beginning Friday, May 14, members, program participants and staff of The Douglas County YMCA who are fully vaccinated may utilize our facility and participate in programs without a face mask.
Fully vaccinated is defined as:
- 2 weeks after the second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine
If you do not meet the above requirements, you are not considered fully vaccinated and therefore are required to continue to wear a mask when inside our YMCA facility and when outdoors on our grounds when social distancing cannot be maintained. We are counting on the integrity of our Y community to follow this guidance based on their vaccination status.
In honoring our Y core value of respect, with regards to our fellow Y members/staff, please remember individuals may continue to wear a mask because they are mid-vaccine or as an extra precaution. If you have any questions regarding the mask order while accessing the facility, please see the front desk or any Y-management employee.
The safety of our members, participants and staff remains our top priority. We will continue to uphold COVID-19 safety guidelines from the CDC and Oregon Health Authority. We appreciate your care and respect for your fellow Y members as we continue to work together to maintain the safest environment possible.
The Y will continue to monitor the situation within our facilities, as well as incorporate guidance from the CDC and the Commonwealth to make adjustments as needed. We appreciate everyone's patience as we enter this next phase.
We are immensely proud of how hard our members and employees have worked to respect the State Mandated guidelines to keep our community safe and our YMCA open. It has been noted by our Douglas County Commissioners and the Douglas Public Health Network that Fitness Facilities have not been the source of any outbreaks. We greatly appreciate your continued support.
