The Midway YMCA was one of two of the first YMCAs to reopen June 10 at 25% capacity.

Kimbers Cadieux never particularly enjoyed working out - "if left to my own devices, I wouldn't do it," she said. But the 64-year-old cancer survivor is exercising almost daily now to reduce her odds of complications if she's ever infected with the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

"If COVID shows up, I want to be stronger," she said.

Cadieux's conversion to a daily fitness regimen matches the latest guidance from health experts, given data showing that more than nine in 10 COVID-19 deaths in Minnesota involved people who were senior citizens or who were younger but with underlying health conditions such as obesity or diabetes.
