covid-19 updates

St Paul HERO




Thursday, November 19

On November 18, Governor Walz announced a new round of coronavirus restrictions as COVID-19 continues its rapid spread throughout the state. These restrictions include the closing of all indoor fitness centers beginning Saturday, November 21 and are planned to last four weeks.

The JCC Fitness and Aquatics facilities are now closed (effective 11/21).

We will continue to offer a wide range of virtual programming to the entire community through OUR VIRTUAL JCC.  In addition, virtual fitness programming will be available exclusively to JCC members.

The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. Our decision as to when and how to reopen will be based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)Minnesota Department of Public Health, local health officials and our JCC leadership. We will keep you updated along the way.
