COVID-19 Updates | Shalom Austin



You are the first line of defense in keeping our community healthy.

Mask and Safety Policy

Effective Tuesday, March 1, 2022

The COVID levels in Austin-Travis County have recently been downgraded. After guidance from local health officials and an infectious disease specialist, the Shalom Austin Jewish Community Center has made the following changes to our mask policy:

Masks are now optional indoors and outdoors at the JCC. You are of course always welcome to wear a mask if you prefer, and we will continue to have them available at the Welcome Desk. 

Safety Reminders

Thank you for remaining considerate when making decisions that may impact the health and safety of others. Please monitor your own health and stay home if you are not feeling well, and wear a mask if you are immunocompromised. We recommend you do not attend Shalom Austin events in person if you are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or immune-compromised.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at

We continue to evaluate and make changes to our COVID health protocols as warranted by local conditions and medical guidance. Further changes will be communicated.  

For mask policies of the Early Childhood Program and programs involving children, please refer the their handbooks and stated COVID protocols.

 Thank you and stay safe!

Health Screening

Temperature checks are no longer required.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or otherwise feel unwell, we ask that you please stay home.

Other Safety Protocols


After using equipment, members are asked to clean it with disinfectant wipes provided by the JCC. Staff will clean throughout the day, including a 30-minute deep cleaning once a day at 2 PM.  


We maintain programmatic boundaries between children and adults to limit the exposure to unvaccinated children.


Each room has a clearly marked occupancy maximum to help ensure social distancing.
