Community Health Related Alert
Based on Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home Stay Safe” order to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Ann Arbor JCC will be closed through April 13, 2020.
The J’s leadership will continue to follow updates from federal, state, and local officials. While we hope that re-opening on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 will be warranted, we also understand that it may be necessary to extend the closure. During this time you can stay connected with us via Facebook and Instagram, as well as Virtal Ann Arbor JCC.
We continue to be truly grateful to those in our community who are members of the J and who have made a point of renewing their memberships on time. Membership dollars are absolutely critical at this time, helping us to maintain the salaries and health insurance so vital for our staff. We will continue to do so as long as possible, as well as support them as they work remotely. The J is still operating and staff is still working, although more “behind the scenes” than usual.
All of us must do our part to keep ourselves, our loved ones, and everyone in our community as healthy as possible by staying at home unless absolutely necessary, washing hands for 20 seconds, and following other county, state, and federal health agency recommendations.
The J will maintain the cancelation of all non-essential programs through April 17, 2020 (again, youth services may have different re-start dates, and they will be in touch with those enrolled). The events you see on our homepage are still scheduled to continue, although they may happen virtually, so please check.
Here is the State of Michigan’s COVID-19 website for updates and information: https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus.
We know that this is a challenging time for everyone, and we appreciate all the guidance, advice, and support we have received during this time. We also want to express our deep appreciation to critical community professionals – fire fighters, police, first responders, medical and medical support professionals, grocery store staff, gas station attendants, restaurant employees, and pharmacists – who continue to serve our community.
Thank you for your understanding as we all weather this storm as a community.
