Mask Policies (Updated 2/25/22):

As we’ve done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been closely monitoring and following the guidance from the CDC, the State of Connecticut Department of Health, and the New Canaan Department of Health. 

On February 25th, the CDC updated its mask guidelines so that they are now determined based on COVID-19 Community Level (Low, Medium, or High) by County.  In areas of Low or Medium COVID-19 Community Level, masks are no longer required to be worn indoors. 

Please click here to read more about the CDC’s updated guidelines. 

Given this guidance and the fact that Fairfield County is currently at a Low COVID-19 Community Level, we will shift to a mask-optional policy for our facility and our programs, effective immediately. 

Anyone who prefers to wear a mask should feel comfortable doing so, and we should all continue to follow current CDC guidance with regard to quarantining and mask-wearing following a positive test or exposure.  

Please continue to be respectful of your fellow Y members and everyone’s varying comfort levels with regard to mask-wearing and maintaining distance with others.
