OSHA Mandate

The Winona Family YMCA is considered a large employer with over 100 employees, and as such we are required to comply with the OSHA mandate.  Unvaccinated staff must test weekly for COVID-19 and wear a mask. If your vaccination status is not received by end of day Monday, January 10, you will be documented as unvaccinated for OSHA reporting purposes. Anyone that falls into the unvaccinated category will need to mask (self-provided) while they are at work and provide a negative PCR test result to their primary supervisor every Friday before noon, starting on January 14. The PCR test must be taken on Wednesday or Thursday each week. Most COVID-19 test sites are either free or they will bill your insurance. If you do incur a fee for processing a COVID-19 test, please bring the bill to the CEO. See OSHA Mandate Policy button below for the full policy.

Staff Mask Policy

Following CDC guidance, staff are strongly encouraged to wear masks, even if fully vaccinated.  

Staff must ALWAYS wear a mask when working with children indoors, and outdoors if within 6 ft of children (eg ropes course facilitation).

Staff  must always have a mask on or near them to wear on short notice if needed.

Per the OSHA mandate for large employers, masks are required for unvaccinated employees.
