Update 10/27/2020: Adams County Covid-19 incidence rates are almost double the level needed to stay in Level 2 of Safer at Home and hospitalizations are rising statewide, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) will move the county into Level 3 of Safer at Home on the state’s dial in hopes to quickly reduce the spread of the virus. With this change, all gyms will be closed for usage effective Wednesday October 28th at 5pm. It is unclear how long the closures will remain but the YMCA will closely monitor this and will re-open facilities as soon as allowed. The Venture Center will remain staffed Monday – Friday 9am-8pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm to assist with resident questions and key card/account set up.

Updated 06/04/2020: As you may have heard the Governor announced that pools can open, and we are anticipating the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment will release further personal recreation guidance for outdoor pools, recreation centers, and playgrounds on Thursday, June 4th. This is good news! However, there is more to this than just opening the doors. The latest email blast with all the current details can be found here.
This post will be updated when next week’s email blast with further details regarding Venture Center & Pool operations, anticipated to begin June 15th, is released.
Updated 05/29/2020: Although the State has announced some outdoor pool guidelines, at this time the Public Health Order still states public pools are to remain closed. As with other businesses and places being allowed to re-open you can imagine that when the pool does open this summer your experience will be very different than past summers. We are doing everything we can to get prepared in the event we are given the green light to open. We are making every effort to abide by the safety recommendations and still be able to provide the community with some recreational opportunities. June 15th is a hopeful date of opening, but is subject to approval and being able to get the necessary supplies for sanitation requirements.
