HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS

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

Mask Policy

Effective on July 28, 2021

After careful consideration and 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:

Due to the increased presence of COVID-19 in the Austin area, we are temporarily adjusting our health and safety protocols. Effective immediately, masks are required indoors at the Shalom Austin JCC, regardless of your vaccination status, for persons aged 2 years and older.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change in policy, please contact us at membership@shalomaustin.org.

Help us stop the spread by getting vaccinated today! Learn more here.

Health Screening

All members and staff will be asked to have their temperature checked and provide their reservation confirmation before entering the building.

If you have a fever of 100.4 or higher, you will not be permitted to enter the building. Members will be able to request a retake of their temperature if the reading seems inaccurate. You can return when you have been fever free without the use of fever reducing medication for 72 hours.

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

Other Safety Protocols

SANITIZING STANDARDS

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

ADULTS & CHILDREN

We have two separate entrances for adults and children to ensure safety for all and will maintain programmatic boundaries between children and adults to limit the exposure to unvaccinated children. 

LIMITED OCCUPANCY

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