Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA opens fitness centers for members with medical need | Cabarrus County | Latest Headlines

Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA is using the NC Department of Health and Human Services’ definition of medical professional which lists several positions: licensed physicians, licensed physician’s assistants or nurse practitioners, licensed nurses, licensed chiropractors, licensed dieticians, licensed respiratory care therapists, licensed psychologists, licensed clinical mental health counselors, licensed occupational therapists, licensed physical therapists, licensed recreational therapists, and licensed massage therapists.

The YMCA recognizes that many members are in need of a safe place to continue an exercise regimen, Morgan said. That is why the centers are opened at limited capacity, he stressed.

“We have a lot of members that need to exercise in a controlled environment, not at a heat index of 110 degrees,” he said.

While centers are open for those that need it, Morgan stressed that they would fully comply with Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 151, which allowed medical exceptions for the use of gym and fitness centers.

The West Cabarrus Branch fitness center will operate on a time interval schedule, Kirk said. Members con go online or call to reserve a 1 hour and 15 minute time slot. Only 10 members will be scheduled per time slot. Members will also be required to wear a mask while entering and leaving the building, in hallways, and common areas.
