COVID-19 Updates

Effective December 28, 2021:

Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in Atlantic County and in accordance with the CDC and State of New Jersey Department of Health, the Katz JCC has implemented the following guidelines:

  • Effective immediately masks are to be worn in all common areas including the Main Lobby, hallways, restrooms and locker rooms. Masks may be removed when you reach your exercise space. 

As a reminder, masks are required at all times if you are not fully vaccinated. Please make sure your mask is properly on prior to entering the building.

Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread COVID-19.  Please do your best to remain 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from other people. 

Please stay home if you are feeling ill or have been exposed to COVID-19. 

We appreciate your support in helping us slow the spread of COVID-19. Thank you!

Fully vaccinated members coming to the Milton and Betty Katz JCC are no longer required to wear a mask and the 6 foot distancing requirement is no longer in place.  Please note, this does not include the JCC’s Early Childhood Education Center or Camp By The Sea. All members and guests are asked to complete the following Vaccination and Acknowledgment of Katz JCC COVID-19 Mask Requirements. An acknowledgment must be completed for each member of the account.
