Starting Monday, March 30th, the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington’s Maryland branches and program centers of Ayrlawn, Silver Spring, and Prince George County, will be open for Emergency Care on a drop in basis. This care will support essential workers and vulnerable children only. Click here for a comprehensive list of these professions. It is recommended that all families keep their children home, and only seek emergency care as a last resort.
This emergency care will be offered through the rest of the school year or until emergency care is no longer needed. If that happens, we will re-evaluate the needs of the community and how to best serve you.
Please note that we will do a health screening upon arrival to the facility. This screening will include a temperature check of both the child and the care-giver. Breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack will be provided. Space is limited and on a first come, first serve basis for essential workers only. As more developments occur regarding the COVID-19 public health crisis, we will continue to evaluate how we move forward with our current and ongoing support in the community.
