COVID-19 Procedures Update

Dear Bender JCC Community,

In response to the recent announcement from Montgomery County, reinstating the mask mandate, we wanted to take this opportunity to update our community on the updated Bender JCC COVID-19 health procedures, which will take effect on November 20. All Bender JCC members are asked to continue wearing their masks. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel to reach out to our team.

Please note that these changes do not affect any policies or procedures that have been put in place by the Bender JCC Early Childhood Center.

In friendship,

Josh Bender
Chief Executive Officer
