COVID-19 Policy Update

Updated Effective: March 2024

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have done our utmost to serve you and our community, with health and safety as our top priority.  After consulting with our medical advisors at LifeBridge Health, and reviewing the protocols of the CDC and local health authorities, we have decided to modify our current COVID-19-related policies.

If You Test Positive for COVID-19 

  • Day zero is either the day of your symptoms or the date of your positive test. 
  • Do not visit the JCC for a minimum of five days after your positive test or onset of symptoms.  
  • After these five days, if you are symptom free, you are welcome to return to the JCC. However, you are required to wear a mask in our facilities for the following five days. 

Direct Exposure 

  • If no symptoms:
    • No quarantine is needed  
    • You are required to wear a mask in the JCC for 2 days after your initial exposure. 
  • If you have symptoms:
    • Home test for COVID-19
    • If you test positive, follow the positive COVID-19 protocols above.
    • If you test negative, you may return after you have been symptom free for 24 hours and must mask for 5 days upon return

Direct Continuous Exposure:

  • If you have ongoing exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual, you must mask for 7 days (day 0 is the day of your first exposure or positive test of the COVID-19 individual).

Mask Policy

  • You must wear a mask at the JCC, if you tested positive five to ten days ago. See our policies above for details. 
  • NEW! We are now limiting the mask requirement to those individuals that can be identified as being directly exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Direct exposure is defined as being within six feet of a COVID-19 positive person for more than 15 minutes. This could be in a class at the JCC, at home, work or at a social event.
  • The JCC reserves the right to require masking if we are able to determine someone has been directly exposed in our facility, or we deem it necessary for the health and safety of the participants of a program. 
  • To help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our facility, we ask that all of our members, guests and staff continue to inform us if they test positive after a recent visit to our facilities so that we can alert other individuals who may have been exposed to you for 15 minutes or more. 
  • If you test positive – please contact our membership team for guidance:
    Email: or call: 410.500.5910 (PH) | 410.559.3506 (OM)

We remain steadfast in our efforts to minimize community spread by reminding our staff, members and guests to continue to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and not to enter our facilities if experiencing symptoms.
