New In-Person Event Guidelines

New In-Person Event Guidelines

Since March 2020, it has been CJJ's organizational policy that all official events happen virtually. The health and safety of our community remain our utmost priority, and after extensive research and consideration, we are updating that policy to allow for in-person events. The parameters for in-person events are detailed below.

August 2021 Update: CJJ will continue to follow the CDC, WHO, and NC state protocols for social distancing and virus contagion prevention. Because of the threat of the Delta variant, internal CJJ meetings are encouraged to take place virtually and certainly should not take place outdoors without masks, or indoors. External/public CJJ events should not take place in-person.

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

  • Attendance is capped at 20.

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

  • Everyone over 3 years of age, except the primary speaker, will be required to wear a mask.

  • 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 not be allowed during or following any event.

  • Children must remain with their parents at all times.

  • 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.

  • 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
