Like many other fitness facilities, the Mankato YMCA is now open.

Executive Director John Kind says they came up with a 38-page plan to keep employees and members safe.

Kind says, “We are taking everyone’s temperature, practicing social distancing, requiring masks until you get to your workout equipment. And I say it’s working well.”

Kind says they’ve installed new software to ensure that they don’t go over the 25 percent capacity allowed and to ensure that people who come to the YMCA won’t be turned away.
