We at the YMCA of York and York County are no longer requiring individuals who are fully vaccinated to wear masks or face coverings while in our facilities or engaging in YMCA activities, such as working out in the wellness center, participating in group exercise, or socializing with others. This change is a result of updated recommendations and orders from the CDC and PA Department of Health.
