Dear Franklin County Family YMCA community,

The safety and well-being of our members, staff, participants, and our community are always a priority for us. As you know, the state regulations ordered by Governor Northam, regarding the size of groups that can be in a wellness facility have been changed. We, of course, will comply in an effort to do our part during this unprecedented time. These changes have made it impossible for us to continue operations and we will “hit the pause button” and temporarily close our locations and childcare programming effective today 3/18/20 at 9pm in Rocky Mount and 8pm at SML.

We understand that closing our facilities and programs will impact many members of our community but we all need to work together to ensure the health of those around us. The Y will offer free virtual exercise classes online to help keep everyone active during this time. Both Les Mills and MOSSA are offering a variety of amazing workouts!

As one of the leading nonprofits, having been in operation for over 20 years, the Y has been here for Franklin County through lots of ups and downs. We are so grateful for your membership and support during this difficult time. If keeping your membership active during this short term closure will cause your family undue financial hardship please reach out to Jessica Thomason ( our Branch Director and Membership Director to make arrangements regarding your membership.

We realize how important it is right now for the Y to live its mission and we are actively developing ways to be of service to our community during this difficult time.

We ask that everyone follow the CDC guidelines in this situation and take care of themselves and the health of their friends and family. YMCA staff looks forward to reopening and providing you with the same great facilities, classes and services you have come to expect.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this difficult and challenging situation.


With Gratitude,

Kevin McAlexander
