Coronavirus: A Message from President and CEO Eric Mann

I want to thank you for being part of our First Coast YMCA family. Our priority is providing a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone who enters our doors and participates in our programs.

With global coronavirus (COVID-19) remaining top of mind for all of us, I’d like to personally update you on the increased prevention measures we are taking to reduce the risk of exposure for our staff, our members, our participants and our community.

In addition to closely monitoring the situation and following guidance from public health officials and government agencies, we are:

  • Focused now, more than ever, on ensuring our facilities are clean and sanitized, with extra attention to frequently touched surfaces
  • Encouraging staff, members and participants to stay home if sick and take everyday preventive actions to avoid illness
  • Making decisions to postpone or cancel some events
  • Implementing new personal travel guidelines for all employees and stopping business travel for employees

As this is a rapidly-changing situation, we appreciate your patience and understanding. We will continue to keep you informed on our efforts to stay healthy together.

Again, thank you for your loyalty to the Y.

Eric K. Mann
President and CEO
YMCA of Florida’s First Coast
