At the Friedman JCC, the safety and well-being of our members, guests and employees continues to be our highest priority. Our goal is to provide a safe place for everyone!
The wearing of a face covering, such as a mask, helps us as a society to limit the spread of COVID-19 and successfully combat this pandemic; therefore, it is in everyone’s best interest that everyone complies. In Pennsylvania, masks must be worn indoors and outdoors when outside of the home. Remember this saying: “My mask protects you; your mask protects me.”
It is important to keep a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household. To practice social or physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Taking one’s temperature when entering the JCC facility will continue as a required practice. It is just one of a variety of tools that we use to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19.
Cleaning with soap and water reduces the number of germs, dirt, and impurities on the surface. Disinfecting kills any remaining germs on surfaces, which further reduces any risk of spreading infection. The JCC staff cleans and disinfects surfaces and objects in common areas, before each use or as much as possible. Other high touch surfaces include gym equipment, tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks.
Bi-Polar ionization Equipment
Many of you might not be aware, but the Friedman JCC building is equipped with a state-of-the-art HVAC control system, and with bi-polar ionization equipment.
• The JCC’s Trane HVAC Control system provides the ability to monitor and control, or manually adjust fresh air intake and ventilation. The system will prevent stagnant indoor
air by continually replenishing and circulating, thus avoiding a big contributor to a major virus-spreading condition.
• The JCC’s bi-polar ionization (BPI) system is an active air purification method. The bi-polar ions are carried into a space via rooftop units and ductwork supplied into the building spaces. The ion effect is continuous, so the benefit is a continuous disinfection of the space and is self-sustaining, meaning if the air supply is providing air to the space, the ions continue to saturate the space.
Stay safe everyone. Please help us stop the spread!
