Mapleton Y pool update: Details.

Updated mask information.



The Y has been running childcare, preschool and camp continuously since last spring, and we’ve learned a thing or two about running programs for kids during this challenging time. Our staff work closely with public health experts to develop practices that minimize risk and maximize fun.

The YMCA of Northern Colorado will follow all safety expectations that align with each school district, local and state health departments and the CDC to ensure that safety is paramount at all of our sites.

Guidance and regulations change often based on CDC and CDPHE requirements so please check back regularly.

  • Masks are required for all participants in licensed childcare programs within our Boulder County-based YMCAs and Thompson School District sites — except when outdoors, in the pool, napping or actively eating or drinking. This includes preschools, after-school programs and school day off camps in our Boulder County-based facilities or in TSD schools. All staff, parents, support personnel and guests must wear masks while in these program spaces.  
  • In addition, our Boulder County facilities (Mapleton, Arapahoe, Longmont) require face coverings for all individuals 2 years and older regardless of vaccination status while indoors.
  • We are following state and local health department guidance on temperature threshold and symptom tracking. We will be on heightened alert for symptoms and enacting a more stringent sick policy to avoid having sick children or children with potential contagious symptoms in the program.
  • Per health department requirement, our staff members are frequently cleaning and disinfecting all spaces and objects that are used during programs.
  • Increased frequency of handwashing for staff and children throughout the day.

If you have been asked to quarantine because of possible exposure to COVID, do not enter our buildings or take part in Y programs. We appreciate your compliance with this very important policy.
