A Message to Our Members 11.19.2020

Dear JCC Members and JCC Friends and Family,
As you heard on Wednesday from Gov. Beshear, there are some significant changes that we, as a community, must make to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We want to communicate how these changes will impact your JCC experience.
First and foremost, we are grateful to you for being a part of our J family. Now, more than ever, to be part of a community that provides a safe place – both physically and virtually – where children, families and individuals can thrive is what we are most proud of. Thank you for being adaptable, flexible and most of all, STRONG together. Your membership and participation mean so much to the hundreds of seniors who receive the 400 meals a week from our kitchen, and our children – of whom hundreds have had the opportunity to just be kids enjoying Summer Camp, Camp J 365 and are participating in our Early Learning Center (ELC) programming. Staying STRONGmeans so many things. Most importantly, to us, it means caring for each other.
Below, we have detailed some important changes that will be implemented, as of Friday, Nov. 20 at 5 pm, and will remain in place through Dec. 13. We will communicate any updates over the next few weeks as needed.
  • Stay STRONG. Mask ON. Per Governor Beshear’s executive orders, we will require masks to be worn at all times in the facility. This now includes during workouts.
  • Group exercise classes, including water aerobics, will be suspended during this time. Live, virtual group exercise classes will be available online. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for notifications regarding classes and times.
  • Pickleball and racquetball will be paused.
  • We will continue to offer one-on-one personal training and will offer a 10% discount to all members for all personal training sessions – new and ongoing.
  • The indoor lap pool will remain open. Reservations need to be made for swim times.
  • We will also continue to offer one-on-one swim lessons through our J Swim School program.
  • Locker rooms and showers will remain open.
  • Our children’s NTI support programming, Camp J 365, and ELC will also continue to operate on a normal schedule.
Our JCC staff is truly going above and beyond to implement health and safety protocols that will protect you and your family. Your wellbeing is always our number one priority.
We thank you for helping us adhere to these new protocols as we implement them. These times are certainly unusual and extraordinary. Your JCC continues to be here as your place for inspiration, support and community.

Please let us know if you have any questions over the next few weeks. Our membership team is here to help and can be reached at membership@jewishlouisville.org.
With gratitude,
