All YMCA programs and offices that don't deal with housing will be closed through 1 p.m. Tuesday because of the cold weather, agency officials announced.

That amounts to roughly 30 YMCA of Metro Chicago facilities that closed throughout Chicago and the collar counties, including gyms, membership centers and early childhood centers.


Beginning at 1 p.m., all programs and classes will resume as scheduled, while early childhood centers will remain closed until Wednesday. Members are encouraged to visit ymcachicago.org for up-to-date information about programming and closures.
