Who is considered a “medical professional”?

The NC DHHS defines medical professional as licensed physicians, licensed physician’s assistants or nurse practitioners, licensed nurses, licensed chiropractors, licensed dietitians, licensed respiratory care therapists, licensed psychologists, licensed clinical mental health counselors, licensed  occupational therapists, licensed physical therapists, licensed recreational therapists, and licensed massage therapists.

This definition does not include personal trainers, unlicensed masseurs or body work therapists, or other unlicensed persons that may provide advice about health.

Am I required to disclose my disability or medical reasons for prescribed exercise?

We respect our members’ right to privacy. While a written prescription is required, the member or medical provider is not required to disclose the reason, medical information, or disability.

Does this mean the Y is fully open for business?

No. It is our intent to provide access to members who need our support urgently for their physician-directed care, in accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order and meeting or exceeding all recommendations and requirements of the CDC, NC DHHS and local health departments.


Further inquires to be made to Linda Fitzgerald at 336-475-5243 or Darlene Fitzgerald at 336-474-5244.
