Measures Taken at the JCC Regarding COVID-19

The JCC of Greater New Haven implements the highest health and safety standards in regard to COVID-19 prevention. We act in accordance with the State DECD, CDC, OSHA, and the Office of Early Childhood guidelines. Please sign up to receive our emails and stay up to date.  


Revised Mask Protocol:

Effective Friday, September 13


With the rise of COVID-19 infections, the JCC, advised by our Reentry Steering Committee and medical advisors, has revised our mask-wearing policy to require that masks be worn at all times with the exception of swimmers while they are swimming laps. Masks are now required throughout our premises including on cardio equipment and when water walking in the pool. Surgical mask supplies will be on hand should you need a fresh mask after exercise. We ask our members to please help keep everyone safe by complying. The JCC is determined to continue to provide the highest level of cleanliness, keeping the health and well-being of our members and staff at the forefront.


Exciting Reopening Update:

Effective Tuesday, September 8


After analyzing our member's usage of our facility and patterns of members' use of our registration systems, we concluded that the next phase of safe reopening allows us to open up the fitness areas for JCC members without requiring registration or a time limit for their visit. We will cap user volume in the expanded fitness areas at 25 at a time. Registration to other parts of the building, like the Marcia and Stanley F. Reiter Swimming Pool, and Racquet Sports is still required. Learn more about our Pool and Racquet Sports updates.
