Dear JCC MetroWest members, families and staff,
Tonight, we were contacted by our night cleaning company and were told that members of our night cleaning crew tested positive for COVID-19.
We have since been in touch with the West Orange Department of Health for guidance. The West Orange Department of Health does not feel that anyone is at risk of being considered a close contact. However, we were instructed to close our building for a thorough deep cleaning.
Therefore, our JCC MetroWest building is now closed. We anticipate that the deep cleaning and sanitization will be complete and we will be ready to open Monday, November 23. Once we receive clearance from the West Orange Department of Health to open, we will notify our members, participants and staff with more definitive information.
As always, we appreciate our community’s support and cooperation. We have listed below some resources that might be helpful.
