Dear Community Members,
We were made aware of a JCC family who has been in contact with an individual who has tested positive with Coronavirus. Several people who were with the individual now present with symptoms of illness.
Upon learning of the situation, we immediately sought guidance from the Connecticut State Department of Public Health and consulted with several medical professionals. The health department was encouraged by the measures we have taken thus far to safeguard those in our building and expressed they felt the risk to individuals who have visited the building was low. As such, there is no directive at this time to self-isolate. If you have further questions, please consult with your physician.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have determined to close the building for a deep cleaning at least through Sunday, March 15, 2020.
The Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven has been working pro-actively to plan should the virus reach our community and we are ready to work through the challenge before us. We will continue to maintain open communication channels and update our Coronavirus resource page on the Jewish Federation website.
We remain ready to assist and support those affected by the virus and will work closely with our agency and congregational partners.
We are asking community members to share with us if you present with flu-like symptoms and have visited our community building. Feel free to email me, Judy Alperin- firstname.lastname@example.org.
I want to re-iterate that we are pursuing the most cautious course of action. As always, your health is our top concern. Please continue to take good care of yourselves and employ best hygiene practices.
Chief Executive Officer
