Safety Guidelines

JxJ is committed to the health and safety of our patrons, our artists, and our staff. All activity at JxJ and within the EDCJCC will continue to be in accordance with regulations from the DC government and CDC.

Our building has been operating safely, with both a preschool and a gym, giving us substantial opportunity to refine our health and safety measures. Cafritz Hall boasts a new and state-of-the-art HVAC system, including a dedicated outdoor air system that brings 100% fresh air into our auditorium every 8 minutes.


All individuals will be required to show proof of full vaccination* each time they enter the EDCJCC building (where JxJ programming and Cafritz Hall are located) by presenting either digital documentation on a smartphone or a physical copy of their vaccination card. Individuals with medical or religious exemptions to vaccinations will be required to show proof of a NEGATIVE Covid-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of their arrival to the EDCJCC.

*Fully vaccinated means either that 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of an FDA- or WHO-authorized double-dose vaccine or since receiving the sole dose of an FDA- or WHO-authorized single dose vaccine.


Effective March 21, 2022, masking will be optional within the EDCJCC, except for in Goldman Theater and Cafritz Hall (where JxJ programs are held), as well as in any other program deemed necessary by the seating layout.

Our vaccination and mask policies will be updated based on CDC guidance, as well as guidance from local and state governmental health authorities. Updates or adjustments to these policies will be communicated on our website and in emails to our community. These policies will be implemented and enforced in full compliance with all applicable laws requiring reasonable accommodations of disabilities and religious beliefs.


Should any future program be cancelled due to health concerns, full refunds will be issued (or credits for those who prefer).


Please visit this webpage for regular updates about safety protocols as set by the CDC and the DC Government. We will continue to incorporate the newest guidance, research, and regulations into our planning, and will update you as guidelines evolve.
