December 31, 2020 Update

With the governor’s limited-time mitigation order set to expire in several days, we want to confirm that the JCC plans to reopen fitness and aquatics facilities and related programming on Monday, January 4 at 8 am.

As was the case prior to our closure, you can register 72 hours in advance for swim times and live pop-in outdoor classes on our Mind-Body app.  Personal training can also resume indoors or sessions can be scheduled remotely.   We continue to invite you to take advantage of a growing library of pre-recorded exercise classes by your favorite JCC instructors and over 50 live classes a week that our members can enjoy through

We also remind you that the following services continue to remain open at the JCC:

  • Child Care/Early Childhood Development Center (Squirrel Hill and South Hills)
  • School Age Child Care – All Day at the J  (Squirrel Hill and South Hills)
  • Physical Therapy – PT at the JCC Powered by the JAA
  • JCC life sustaining services – such as AgeWell Meals to go and deliveries, blood drives, immunization clinics and Covid-19 testing, in partnership with the Squirrel Hill Health Center

Throughout the course of the pandemic, the JCC remains committed to providing services to the best of our ability.  If you have specific questions, please direct them to [email protected] who can best address your inquiry.

We wish you and your families a safe and healthy new year.

*Hours are modified for Phase 2 of Reopening; times may change as we transition between phases. 

The health and safety of our community is the JCC’s top priority. Every decision made regarding our Phase 2 reopening has been through the lens of the health and safety of our members and staff. The JCC has worked closely with long time partner, the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative, for continued guidance in the reopening plan.

Reopening Phase 2 – is the second of a multi-phased plan to resume JCC fitness and wellness services in a safe and modified form in compliance with state, county and local guidelines and CDC recommendations, including mandatory masks, social distancing and sanitation practices, and extensive cleaning protocols.

Our virtual programming will continue actively as we transition into this next phase, bolstered by its growth and your positive feedback and cognizant that a number of you are not yet ready to reenter public environments. See the class schedule at: #JCCVirtual
