We are excited to begin reopening the JCC. While many things about your JCC experience will look different in the first stage of re-opening, we are making every effort to ensure your experience is enjoyable and safe. To do that, we must work together to mitigate any health risks. JCC facilities and programs will operate with reduced capacities and limited access

Please allow for extra time when you are coming to the JCC as screening and checkin will take longer under the new guidelines.  Everyone will have a health screening prior to entering the facilities and programs. Anyone exhibiting signs or symptoms of illness will be turned away. 



Additionally, in accordance with the Governor’s Travel Advisory, if you travel to Connecticut from Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah, please do not enter a JCC program or facility until after being in a 14 day self-quarantine.

Advanced reservations are required for the fitness center, group fitness and the indoor pool.
