The Latest Communication From Our Executive Director

July 13, 2020

Dear Alpert JCC Members,

 

As of today, July 13th, 2020, Governor Newsom has ordered all Fitness Centers in LA County, and other affected counties in the state, to close immediately.

 

Due to this announcement, we are forced to close our fitness center. All reservations will be canceled for the Cardio and Strength Training, and for Personal Training, until further notice. For any questions or concerns, please email us at membership@alpertjcc.org. We will continue to monitor the situation, as soon as we are able to reopen, we will be sure to let you know.

 

The pool will remain open and our virtual fitness programs will continue online; you can see the full schedule here. Please note: the pool is only open for lap swim with a reservation. No recreational usage or swim lessons at this time.

 

It’s important that you know that you will need a reservation to use a pool lane. You can make a reservation by using the MY J APP. For information about how to make a reservation on the MY J APP visit our website here

HEALTH CHECKS:

In an effort to speed up health checks before entering the building, we have put together an online health check questionnaire where you will be able to answer health and safety questions before coming to the facility.

 

Once you complete the questionnaire, you will receive a confirmation email with a pass or no pass, depending on your answers. Once you get to the J, just show us your email and we’ll just need to take your temperature and give you the Health Check Sticker!

 

Please continue to arrive 10 minutes in advance of your reserved time in order to get your health check and sign a waiver (one time only). You will be allowed to get into the building 5 minutes before your reservation time.

 

You can access the Health Check Questionnaire link here

You will be able to find this link on our website home page. See it here!

 

Please remember, as we move forward, we will continue to adhere to the guidance provided by federal, state, and local authorities in order to do our best to ensure our members’ and students’ safety. This is a fluid situation and we know our plans may require adjustments as the situation changes. Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility. For any questions or concerns, please email us at membership@alpertjcc.org.

 

Thank you,

Deborah Goldfarb, Interim Executive Director & Jeffrey Rips, Executive Director

Every person that intends to come into the building will be screened. Their temperature will be taken with a touchless thermometer and they will be asked the following questions:

  • Have you been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19?
  • Are you experiencing a cough, shortness of breath or sore throat?
  • Have you had a fever in the last 48 hours?
  • Have you experienced vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours?

In addition, all adults will be required to wear a mask and sanitize their hands.

Our maintenance staff is disinfecting high touch surfaces as well as the restrooms every 30 min. We are happy to report we are going touchless! Touchless water dispensers have been installed around the building and we are currently working towards adding sensor faucets and toilets. In addition to this, we are using the Germfalcon. The first UV-C System designed for airplanes. You can learn more about the system by visiting https://www.germfalcon.com/. We are confident this will help with the stop of transmitting the virus.
