Covid19 Health Guidelines

The following guidelines have been established to help ensure the health and safety of our members.

The health of our members is our number one concern. In light of the current pandemic, the Katz JCC has adopted new health guidelines to ensure the well being of our members, staff and the greater community.

Members Must Have Swipe Cards:

To access the fitness center all members MUST have their swipe cards. To reduce contamination, the keypad is no longer available.


Health Declaration:

Members and JCC Staff will complete a health declaration before each visit confirming they are not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been around someone who is infected.

Please stay home if you are sick or experiencing any health symptoms including mild cold and other symptoms identified by the CDC.
