Program Changes From Maine’s Ending Mask Mandate

As of May 24, 2021 Maine is allowing fully vaccinated people to be unmasked inside. 

With respect to our unvaccinated and not yet vaccine eligible members and guests, be socially responsible and give everyone the space they need to feel safe here. 

As we enter this next phase of the pandemic in Maine I am reminded about our YMCA core values.

Please be honest. If you are not vaccinated continue to wear a mask.

Please continue to care for our equipment and the health of others. Continue cleaning equipment.

Please continue to respect everyone’s personal space.

Please take responsibility for your health. If you are not feeling well, stay home and get better.
