In-Person Event Guidelines

In-Person Event Guidelines

The health and safety of our community remain our utmost priority, and after extensive research and consideration, CJJ is updating our policy for in-person events. The parameters for in-person events are detailed below, and align with most recent CDC and NCDHHS guidelines.

May 13, 2022 Update: CJJ will continue to follow the CDC, WHO, and NC state protocols for social distancing and virus contagion prevention. Due to the continued threat of the Omicron variant, as well as accessibility benefits, internal CJJ meetings are encouraged to take place virtually, outdoors, or indoors with the recommendation of wearing masks. External/public CJJ events may take place in-person, recommended outdoors or indoors with masks as determined by individual comfort and community agreements. 

Internal CJJ meetings (e.g., staff, board, steering committee, chapter meetings) and external/public events may be held in-person outdoors, provided that the following conditions are observed:

  • People from different households will remain socially distanced (> 6 feet apart).

  • Individuals with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or exposed to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should not attend in-person events.

  • Shared food will be allowed during or following any event upon prior agreement of participants, and with a non-cross-contamination plan. 

  • People who attend in-person events will be required to report to CJJ leadership any COVID-19 infection (symptomatic or asymptomatic) that occurs within a week of attending an event in person.

  • Event organizers will maintain a record of attendance and contact information in case contract tracing or notification of exposure is necessary. 

  • In the event that a case of COVID-19 is identified and potentially linked to a CJJ event, the leadership will report the case and contact information of all necessary people as required by the local health department. CJJ will follow health department recommendations and will notify people who may have been exposed.

Coronavirus/COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus that spreads easily through person-to-person contact. Federal and state authorities recommend social distancing as a means to prevent the spread of the virus. COVID-19 can lead to severe illness, personal injury, permanent disability, and death. Participating in programs or accessing facilities could increase the risk of contracting COVID-19. Carolina Jews for Justice in no way warrants that COVID-19 infection will not occur through participation in in-person events or programs. Should you discover a potential exposure at a CJJ event, please be in touch immediately so that we can take the appropriate actions: 919-301-9692
