Our Members are Our Top Priority
As we have been tracking the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, we have been making our decisions based on the recommendations of the CDC and the Long Beach Department of Health. Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and well-being of our members and staff, we have decided to suspend all Alpert JCC programs and services until May 3, 2020. The J is committed to the safety, health, and well-being of our members, staff, and participants.
We are confident this is the right decision on behalf of our members, staff and visitors. Please note – there has not been any confirmed cases of COVID-19 at our JCC. In deciding to close, we are complying with the city’s recommendation and doing our part to reduce the rate of transmission. Please know that we take seriously the investment you make in your JCC participation.
We will communicate directly with you as soon as we are able regarding your membership and/or missed programs. While our staff is currently focused on health, safety and the reorganization of certain operations, your patience is appreciated. To our JCC Members enrolled in our Early Childhood Education and Kids’ University Program: You will be receiving a separate email with more details shortly.
In the coming days, we will be working to find creative ways to keep connecting people with each other, whether that is through distance learning, exercise broadcasts, or check-ins with isolated people in our community. Communications from program staff and The JCC will continue to be sent with updates and opportunities for (virtual) connection across our developing engagement platform.
We hope to have better news in the weeks to come that may include resuming on-site programming earlier than April 6. We will also be doing everything possible to reopen quickly, from deep cleaning to staff training and, of course, staying closely in touch with our public health authorities.
We will keep you all informed with new updates or changes as soon as possible. I greatly appreciate your confidence in our efforts and thank you for your cooperation and support.
What's Happening with March/April Events
Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and well-being of our members and staff, we have decided to cancel all programs and services through April 5th. Good news! Some programs and events will be moved online! We will let you know when those are ready to view!
