The Yates Community Center recently found out that gyms and fitness centers in NY will not be allowed to reopen at the beginning of Phase 4 on June 26 as we had hoped. We are just as unhappy and sad as all of you BUT remain confident that when the time comes for us to open our doors we will come out of this stronger and better in the long term.
