Hello YMCA Members! 
The government has announced a phased approach to relaunching Alberta's economy. Recreational facilities have been identified in the 3rd phase of the plan, however, at this time there is no specific date as to when this phase will begin. To date, the Government of Alberta has not released the additional public health requirements and restrictions that recreational facilities will be expected to follow when they re-open. As we wait for more information to come, we are connecting with our members to determine your needs and expectations when you return to the YMCA. 
At the YMCA of Medicine Hat, we look forward to welcoming you back to our recreational facilities. We are working closely with the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services to understand all operational recommendations and restrictions to ensure safe and healthy spaces. Please know that we will be adhering to all health and safety recommendations. 
Our re-opening date and services offered will be determined by the Government of Alberta’s decision to begin Phase 3 of their relaunch strategy. We will use the information gathered in this survey to assist us in developing a YMCA re-opening plan that will meet the needs and expectations of our members.
Please follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PWV2SB7 to complete the survey. It will take approximately 3 minutes of your time and all results are collected anonymously.  We encourage ALL members to complete the survey, including those who are part of couples or family memberships. This survey is open until Monday, May 18th. Once we have compiled our results, we will be in touch again to share our re-opening plan. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sharon Hayward, CEO at Sharon.hayward@medicinehatymca.ca
Thank you for your time,
The YMCA Team
