Given the quickly changing environment surrounding COVID-19 and protocols being put into place concerning the gathering of individuals in public spaces, it has been determined that in the best interests of the health and safety of our guests and staff, the Ramsey Center will be closing to the public. Effective immediately and until further notice, the closure of Ramsey Center racquetball courts, gymnasiums, and spaces used for public walking is now in effect. These steps that are being taken are necessary to ensure the health and safety of all members of our staff, our community and our neighbors. Additional information will be provided as it is made available. We encourage all to remain patient as this situation unfolds and we thank you for your continued patronage.
