The Morgan Family YMCA has advised parents of a potential head lice exposure in the Tacoma facility’s gymnastics program.

The facility at 1002 S. Pearl St. told parents it knew of one person who had head lice, which are spread most often through head-to-head contact.

Gymnastics progamming was canceled for Wednesday so that the YMCA could do a deep cleaning of all affected areas.

Gymnastics programing will resume as scheduled Thursday.
