Health & Safety

L.A. County Public Health announced that effective Sunday, July 18, 2021—masking will be required while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. The AJCC’s Health & Safety Policy has consistently aligned with county, state, and CDC recommendations and mandates. To remain in compliance with this latest mandate, the AJCC will require masking for all indoor activities.


Masks are optional for adults while outdoors in our Group Fitness, Parking Lot, and Pool areas.

Transparency and consistent communication is essential to our process. Every agency and employer balances respect for the employee and member confidentiality and privacy. Staff, parents, and members will be promptly notified of any critical incidences, significant exposures, or need to quarantine. What will the procedure be if a student/member or staff tests positive? If there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 at the AJCC, management staff will follow the guidance from the local health department, CDC, and our Medical Advisory Team guidance.

We are unable to guarantee that your child or our members will not be exposed to Covid-19 or that the JCC is 100% safe. Given community-wide spread of the virus, exposure in any public or group setting is a distinct possibility. Our goal is to follow the recommendations of the CDC and local leaders to create protocols and procedures to minimize risk.

Each day families are required to fill out documentation prior to arrival. There are a series of questions that determine if a family can come into the center and school that day. The survey then gives the family a pass or fail. If the family does not pass, they are not admitted to school. Any student or family on quarantine would not be permitted to return until the completion of the quarantine period.

As soon as we are notified we ask that they remain home for 14 days.

People who have COVID – 19 symptoms are asked to isolate for 10 days. People who have been exposed to individuals who have tested positive for COVID – 19 are asked to quarantine for 14 days.

N95 use exceeds the ability of the AJCC’s training, capability, and resources. Not only are N95 masks recommended for healthcare workers who have direct, intensive care with known COVID-19 patients, these masks are in short supply. Use of N95 masks requires specialized training; they require a fit test on an (at least) annual basis. This device has limited availability, and is not currently recommended for school/preschool use.

Teachers in the same age group do have small windows of time that they cross over. Teachers who are in separate age groups do not cross over as each age group has their own entrance and exit from the center. The health and safety guidelines in place allow us to minimize risk of significant contact.

Anyone with immune compromise should consider a consultation with their own healthcare provider before attending AJCC programs. 

Please keep us posted, and notify us promptly. This will help with our planning and tracking of potential exposures. All of us communicating as much as possible will help.
