Aside from its childcare operation, the YMCA of the Northwoods will close all operations on Tuesday.

In a press release, CEO Ryan Zietlow cited government rules, school closures, and demand on medical professionals in making the call.

Instead, Zietlow wrote the organization will focus its efforts on childcare to support medical staff in the community.
