YMCA Extends Closure to Offer Relief Care to Essential Workers

March 23, 2020

Tampa Bay, FL (Mar. 23, 2020)  Based on the latest statewide executive order, the YMCAs of the Tampa Bay will remain temporarily closed through Friday, May 8*. This is an extension of policies and recommendations of health authorities, in an effort to transition the Y’s efforts to help essential care workers and do its part to limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).


Starting today, Monday, March 23, the YMCAs of Tampa Bay are offering all-day youth relief care for essential workers at 21 Y locations (listed below) across Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Citrus and Hernando counties to help support the children of healthcare and emergency response professionals, as well as other essential workers, who are playing important roles combating the coronavirus. Together, the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCAYMCA of the Suncoast and YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg are working to meet a critical need to help the Greater Tampa Bay region continue to effectively function as our schools are closed.
