The 3 C’s of Staying Healthy

Stop the Spread of Germs

The Sheridan County YMCA Board continues to thoughtfully and intentionally discuss the current situation and risk in our organization.  As of Tuesday, July 7 the Y will no longer sell day passes, punch passes or monthly memberships to any out-of-county residents. Johnson County YMCA members will still be able to access our facilities. For those individuals that live in-county we will ask you to answer several screening questions.

Thank you for assisting us in this ever-changing situation of COVID 19.

Along with the openings of Phase 1 and 2 reopenings, we will also provide the following services and amenities to our members:

  • Summer Camps

      – Unfortunately, we are unable to provide day passes, punch passes, or monthly membership for out of county patrons at this time. Johnson County YMCA members will still be able to access our facilities.

-When selling a new membership, staff will need to ask the following 2 questions:  1) Have you been staying in Sheridan County for the past 14 days? 2) Can you provide a Sheridan County address?

If the patron is unable to answer yes to both of these questions we will not be able to sell them a membership at this time.
