COUNTDOWN TO RADY REOPENING – The Rady JCC Wellness Ambassador

June 11, 2020

Dear Rady JCC Friends,

Four more days.

Four more days until we can open our doors once again. Four more days until we can welcome you back into your Rady JCC.

As you no doubt know by now, next Monday we reopen. And as we have said many times now, we will be doing so with the health and safety of our members, staff, and volunteers top-of-mind as well as with physical distancing measures temporarily in effect as mandated by the provincial government.

In today’s communication, we are happy to tell you about an additional step we have taken in order to put your mind at ease so you can concentrate on why you have decided to return. As part of our reopening strategy, we have created a new position within our Rady team: the Rady Wellness Ambassador.

The Wellness Ambassador is the Rady JCC’s on-site well-being consultant. This person’s primary functions are to provide clarity, support, and resources to members on all things related to physical distancing measures implemented to combat the ongoing pandemic. We will maintain this position for our members until such a time as it is no longer needed.

Our Wellness Ambassador will be the person who greets you at our facility entrance, screening, and checking your temperature before you are granted entry. If you have any questions about our currently physical distancing measures, he or she will also be here for you. Our Wellness Ambassador can provide you ongoing information on our temporary rules as they relate to the fitness facility, aquatics facility, and studios.

When you return next week, you should be focused on why you are here: to have a first-class fitness experience in a beautiful facility. You shouldn’t have to worry about anything else. Our Wellness Ambassador is here in order for you to achieve just that.

See you in four more days.

Rob Berkowits
Executive Director
Rady JCC
