Stay Safe, Stay Healthy

Our Current Safety Protocols

Each member and guest must sign this new waiver just once. You will need your barcode on the back of your membership card and last name only.

Member Hours

The fitness center will now be open continuously throughout the day, matching regular building hours.

Vaccination Policy

All members age 12 and older will be required to show proof of full vaccination* each time when entering Riverdale Y. As of January 3, children aged 5-11 must show proof of at least one dose to participate in programs or services. You may present your New York State Excelsior Pass, NYC COVID Safe app, or your CDC vaccination card (photos are fine) for building and program entry.

*fully vaccinated means at least two shots for ages 12+*


Masks are required in all shared, public areas of the Y, including the entry, lobby, hallways, elevator, program spaces, and restrooms and locker rooms, especially where it’s difficult to maintain social distance, and where children may be present.

Please note:

  • In children’s programs, masks are required for all adults, children over 2, instructors, and any support staff present unless in the pool.  This includes the pool deck for parents watching swim lessons.
  • Members are not required to wear masks within the fitness center, pool, group exercise classes, and basketball court. We ask that you continue to show your vaccination app or card at the front desk for the time being so that we can update your account status.
