Mask Policy

UPDATED COVID-19 MASK POLICY (posted 8/3/21):
As we continue to move through the Covid-19 pandemic, we ask you to continue partnering with JCCNS leadership, staff, and members by following our requested and required mask protocols. Due to the recent rise in Covid-19 cases, and the uncertainty of the spread of the Delta variant, we have made some changes to our requirements, while we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our entire community.

As of Thursday, August 5th:
Whether vaccinated or not, we are now requiring EVERYONE to wear a mask when entering and exiting the JCCNS building, and while in any common/shared spaces throughout the building including hallways, locker rooms and Health Centers.

Those who are vaccinated may remove their masks for participation in Group Ex classes, while on the fitness floor, and while participating in aquatics classes. We still require those who are not vaccinated to remain masked at all times.

We will continue to consult with our medical committee, the CDC, the State of Massachusetts and our local Board of Health as guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic evolve.

Thank you for your continued cooperation.
