COVID-19 Updates | Shalom Austin



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

Mask Policy

Effective on January 7, 2022

Austin Public Health increased the COVID-19 community risk level to Stage 5 on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022 for the City of Austin. We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe during this time. We would like to remind you of our current COVID safety policies, which will remain in effect during Stage 5, as follows:


All members and staff will be required to wear a 3-ply surgical mask or a KN95 mask when inside the building. Cloth masks are no longer acceptable; and if needed, adult and child-sized surgical masks will be available at the Welcome Desk. Social distancing does not preclude the necessity of wearing a mask.  

Disinfecting Standards

After using equipment, members will clean it with Virex disinfectant wipes provided by the JCC. Staff will continue daily cleanings.

Air Purifiers

As an additional level of protection, we have installed ALEN BreatheSmart 45i air purifiers in the Fitness Center, GroupEx Studio, and Weight Room.

Safety Reminders

If you are not feeling well, we ask that you stay home. We recommend you do not attend Shalom Austin events in person if you are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or immune-compromised.

Health Screening

We check temperatures for children under 12 who enter the building, and temperature checks are no longer required for adults.

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.
