Covid-19 Policies and Procedures

For your safety and the safety of others, the  MIYJCC has put the following COVID rules and procedures in place.

As we welcome you in, help us keep the COVID-19 virus out! Failure or refusal to follow the rules, will result in you being asked to leave the building.

Entering Facility
  • All members must enter via the main doors of the building prior to participating in any programs, fitness, activities, or classes.
  • All members over the age of two, and staff, are required to wear masks indoors except when in the Skeist-Hadar Fitness Center, the Joshua A. Sason Gymnasium, the fitness studios, and the Spin Zone after showing proof of vaccination.

This is our way of making sure you stay safe as well. If you have difficulty standing, please let us know and our staff will meet you in the lobby where you can maintain the appropriate distance.
Cleaning & Disinfecting
Our staff is continuously sanitizing all frequently used and high-touch areas – doorknobs, light switches, etc. Even with our enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols, we highly recommend that you maintain your own personal hygiene by not touching your face, eyes, or nose. The building receives an additional cleaning after all members have left for the evening.
