A MESSAGE FROM THE ALPERT JCC MEDICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE

 

Dear Alpert JCC Members and Friends,

 

The health and safety of our members, visitors, and staff remains our top priority. By following science, medical experts, and the guidance of the CDC and local health authorities, we continue to successfully serve people of all ages and abilities in our facility, operate child care and camping programs, restore fitness and wellness activities indoors, reopen locker rooms, and support ongoing public health and nutrition programs.

 

At this time, in compliance with a directive of our Board of Directors, all persons entering the Alpert Jewish Community Center will be required to  present their proof of COVID-19 vaccinations. Effective 10/18/21 all who are eligible for vaccination must have proof of vaccine on record or be able to show a negative COVID-19 test result received no more than 72 hours prior to entering the facility. Non-members will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire so that we can keep your contact information and vaccination status on record. This will also give you the opportunity to receive updates on our programs.

 

Proof of vaccination can be shown in person or via email at membershipassistant@alpertjcc.org. You will only need to provide your information once. Upon receipt of your record, your status will be entered into our membership system for simple and smooth verification going forward.

 

As a reminder, masks will continue to be required at all times indoors. 

 

We understand that you may have questions regarding these changes. We invite you to contact us at membership@alpertjcc.org or (562) 426-7601.

 

The decision was not taken lightly. Our Medical Advisory Team and the Board feel that it is our obligation to set physical boundaries, not only in order to save lives, but to protect the most vulnerable members of our community who we serve in the building as part of our programming and mission.

 

We thank you for your continued observance of our COVID-19 protocols and for your commitment and dedication to the Alpert Jewish Community Center. We are grateful to you for your cooperation and understanding, which will help us ensure that we can continue to be a vital resource for our community not only now during these unprecedented times, but for generations to come.
