The LFJCC is dedicated to the health and safety of our community including our employees. Here is a list of standards for members, guests, and employees that we will follow until further guidance from CDC and State and local health authorities:

  • Required entry procedures including temperature checks & COVID-19 symptom screening

  • Required facial coverings over mouth and nose. Following the recommendation from the Center of Disease Control (CDC), masks with "Exhalation Valves or Vents" are no longer permitted at the JCC. According to the CDC website, the purpose of masks is to keep respiratory droplets from reaching others to aid with source control. However, masks with one-way valves or vents allow air to be exhaled through a hole in the material, which can result in expelled respiratory droplets that can reach others. This type of mask does not prevent the person wearing the mask from transmitting COVID-19 to others. (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover-guidance.html)

  • Procedures implementing six feet of distance between members and guests

  • Enhanced cleaning protocols including deep cleans, self cleaning stations, and training for all staff to care for their work areas

  • Appointment/Reservation systems for applicable departments

  • Transparent communication and response to groups that may have been exposed to the virus

The safety of our members, guests, and employees is our top priority. In partnership with our COVID-19 Taskforce and Board of Directors, we have carefully planned a phased approach to reopening our physical space at the Lawrence Family JCC, JACOBS FAMILY CAMPUS. Each of us will play an integral role in making the LFJCC a safe place for our community. If you are not feeling well or you have a temperature over 100 degrees, please stay home.
