Facility, Schedule and Program Updates

Updated: March 31 at 11  a.m.

These are unprecedented times. COVID-19 (coronavirus) is a global pandemic and a national emergency, and nobody is certain what the days ahead hold.

It’s hard to imagine more difficult circumstances for operating our YMCA. We are a community organization. We bring people together – from all backgrounds and circumstances – and create personal connections that change lives through membership and programs.

But the nature of this virus, and how it spreads, presents significant challenges for our Y.

In light of recent updates from the CDC, Governor Roy Cooper, public school systems and our state and local health departments, and with an abundance of caution, we are making adjustments to Y programs and services.

Please check back here often for updates. Stay well. Stay with us. 

A message from Doug McMillan, YMCA of the Triangle President and CEO.


Based on continued recommendations from the CDC, state and local health officials and area health departments, we must extend our temporary suspension of all YMCA facility access and programs through April 30.

This includes facility access, group fitness classes and wellness programs in all YMCA facilities. 

Visit our Virtual Y. We've partnered with our youth development and healthy living experts to provide you with virtual access to the best group fitness classes on the go and resources for kids to learn, grow and thrive even when school's out.
