Steps For Re-opening


For a printable version of Step 1, click here.


Step 1 of re-opening is expected to begin Monday, July 13. Re-opening is dependent on Long Island’s ability to meet the requirements set by New York State and our ability to ensure all new measures are in place.

During Step 1, our facility will be open only to those with active memberships. For all members who stayed with us during this time, you will receive a free month added to your membership! If you have frozen or canceled your membership, reinstate by August 1 and we will waive your re-enrollment fee, a savings of up to $159. Enjoy usage of our facility for the month of July as our thank you. For all members who wish to maintain a frozen status, a $25/month charge will be billed to your account as of August 1. If you are interested in becoming a member, please click here. For more information, contact Debbie Selletti, dselletti@sjjcc.org
