The YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles will begin reopening gym facilities that were closed due to the coronavirus beginning June 22, officials said Saturday.
The 26 local YMCA facilities will open in phases, with new health protocols in place to prevent further spread of the virus.
"Following Mayor Garcetti's advice for businesses to reopen by 'taking your time to do it right,' the YMCA-LA has initiated a three phase plan that includes new operating protocols and staggered reopening of local branches," officials said.
