YMCA Phase 1 Reopening Guidelines
We are excited to begin reopening our Albuquerque Centers on June 1st! We want to keep our members safe and protected while they use our facilities, so we are following strict guidelines from the CDC and state authorities. On June 1st, we will begin reopening our Centers in phases, and will gradually get back to our new normal. All of our facilities in Albuquerque will adhere to these guidelines.
