Keeping You Safe & Healthy

Our Response to COVID-19

The JCCSF was alive last year with activity from the Fitness Center down to the pool, up in the gymnasium and throughout our studios, classrooms, preschools, and gathering spaces. Perhaps we did not take notice of the joy in a quick chat with a friend or holding the door open for another community member. Since we suspended in-person activity in March 2020 in response to this massive public health crisis, so much has changed for each of us, our communities, and our world.  What remains unchanged is how important you are to us, and that keeping you safe and healthy is our top priority.

Program Updates

San Francisco is currently in the Yellow Tier, allowing our Fitness Center to have more members enjoy indoor fitness workouts, including group exercise classes. Our three Preschools and Class Connection school enrichment programs remain as in-person programs, while our Arts & Ideas program continue to stay online. We’re proud to say that we have successfully been running in-person preschool since June 2020 and can’t wait to once again welcome back our families for another summer camp season this June 2021.

How We’re Keeping You Safe

Clean & Fresh

  • More people to keep it clean.
    Our cleaning crew is as strong as ever. They have further expanded the cleaning frequency of high-touch surfaces.
  • Use of top-grade disinfectant.
    In addition to cleaning and disinfecting high touch areas through-out the day, our team will use CDC-approved disinfectant on all areas of the center, including equipment, after hours, each day. The new disinfectant works with a technology called “electrostatic distribution,” which allows us to spray more evenly and get hard-to-reach crevices. It clings to every surface it coats and is proven 99.99% effective at killing viruses like COVID-19.
  • No surface left behind.
    In all common areas of the building, we’ll disinfect doorknobs, handles, handrails, light switches, sanitizing stations, lockers, bathrooms, sinks, toilets, benches, the front desk, keyboards, computers and phones. If it’s prone to someone touching it, we’ll clean it!
  • Staff in face masks and gloves.
    You’ll see all staff wearing face masks. You’ll also notice all housekeeping staff wearing gloves. This requirement is for their protection, as well as the protection of our community.
  • Touchless sanitizing.
    We’ve tripled the amount of motion-activated hand sanitizer dispensers and are using a formula with a higher alcohol concentration.

Health Checks

  • Staff health checks.
    Staff will have their temperature checked daily before their shift as well as submit a health questionnaire. If there is any cause for concern, those team members will not remain at work and health protocols will be followed.
  • Participant health checks.
    Regardless of local or state government mandates, out of an abundance of caution, we’ll check the temperature of everyone as they enter the building.

Health & Safety Policy

To keep our community safe, please remember: if you have symptoms of COVID-19 and are awaiting a test result, or if you have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, please do not come to the JCCSF until 10 days after your symptoms began, your symptoms have improved and you’ve been fever free for 24 hours. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you do not come to the JCCSF for 10 days. The JCCSF is following Isolation and Quarantine guidance from the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

If you have visited us and subsequently test positive for COVID-19, we want to know about it. Please immediately email or contact any fitness staff you are most comfortable reaching out to.

Safe Together: Doing Your Part

  • Social distancing practices.
    We ask community members and staff to work together to maintain social distancing practices of at least 6 feet when moving throughout the building. To help, floor markers will indicate a safe distance in the lobby, elevators, stairwells and on the fitness floors. We ask that you avoid gathering in high-traffic areas, and consider socializing outside if you’re comfortable and weather permits it.
  • Keep yourself covered.
    Masks or face coverings are required and must be worn at all times.  If you don’t have your own mask, no problem, we’ll provide a disposable mask for you.

I trust every single person on staff at Diller. They know my child. They respect my child. They engage with creativity and joyfulness on a daily basis. Having such trust felt like a gift pre-covid. Now it feels essential. Our child's experience at Diller is one of the beautiful bright spots in this trying time. I know that he is safe and cared for all day. He comes home wiped out from a day full of play, exploration, art, music, nature, and connection. They put so much work into making the program safe and nurturing. I am grateful for Karla and the amazing group of people that she leads.

It felt very safe while exercising during the reopening. Lots of great initiatives were taken to create this experience.
