COVID-19 Updates

On Tuesday, September 1 at 6 am the Katz JCC Fitness Center will reopen in accordance with State regulations. 

We can’t wait to welcome you back to the JCC where our staff and facility are ready for our members to return safely.  

The fitness center and gymnasium have been modified to create new, more spacious options for our members to exercise while social distancing. Both spaces will open at 25% capacity.  To further ensure the health and safety of our members, the JCC will close each day from 12:00 – 1:00 pm, along with hourly intermittent cleaning, to disinfect and sanitize all equipment and machines.

Membership Renewals and Credits

We thank you for your continued support of the JCC and want to ensure you that all members will be credited for the months that we were closed due to COVID-19.  There are several COVID – 19 membership credit options available.  On September 1 all memberships will be active.  To discuss your credit options for the time we were closed, please contact the Welcome Center prior to coming to the JCC as we are limiting the in – person interaction in our Main Lobby.
