Scott Tota, the YMCA’s senior director of Health Living, said the pool’s maximum capacity is currently at ten people to help maintain social distance and slow the spread of the coronavirus. Members and staff are asked to fill out health questionnaires upon arrival. Tota was ecstatic to have members back in the pool. Starting Wednesday, members of the YMCA were allowed to take place in aqua therapy and lap swim by reservation only. Masks are required when anywhere in the building except the pool. JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — The YMCA West Family Branch in Johnson City welcomed some swimmers back on Wednesday. “[The staff] kind of looked at each other… it’s almost like starting work for the first time. You’re starting your first day. So there was some excitement from staff, and the members have honestly been, they’ve been fantastic,” Tota said. Tota expressed disappointment as the news gyms will not be a part of Phase 4 of New York State’s Forward Plan, but said the YMCA is committed to keeping people healthy.
