Updated Mask Policy

Effective Monday, August 2

Vaccinated & non-vaccinated members must wear masks throughout JCC building.

New Haven County has moved into the “substantial” infectious rate category regarding the Delta Variant of COVID-19. After reviewing state and CDC guidelines and conferring with our consulting physicians, we have determined that to protect our community, including the young children and vulnerable adults who frequent our building, it is necessary to reintroduce additional protective measures. 

At this time, masks must be worn throughout the JCC building. No other changes (swimming reservations, etc.) will be implemented at this time. Personal hygiene remains important and we encourage the use of hand sanitizers that are spread around the building and to continue practicing safe social distancing.
