The Williams YMCA of Avery County is committed to the health and safety of our members, staff and community. In keeping with state and local mandates, masks continue to be required at all times inside YMCA facilities, including while exercising. Wearing a mask not only keeps our friends and family safe, it is critical to keeping our YMCA open. The Y is currently operating at 75% capacity and have spaced out all equipment on the Wellness Center floor to allow for social distancing.  We have implemented the use of a reservation system to reserve certain amenities the Y offers. Increased cleaning and sanitizing methods have been implemented including the daily use of a sanitizing fogger throughout the facility.  We appreciate your support as we make every effort to keep our members and staff safe!
