COVID-related Health and Safety policies
Please read carefully through all of the information below.

Proof of Vaccination Required for Entry
The City of Boston recently announced that starting on January 15, people in the City of Boston will be required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 in order to enter certain indoor spaces in Boston.

This means that all adults entering JPMAA will be required to show proof of vaccination against COVID.

We will need to see either:
* A CDC vaccination card
* A digital image of your CDC card

We will keep a record of those who have provided their card, so you only need to show it the first time you come in.

Please note: according to the City of Boston policy, all children will be required to show a vaccination card upon entry beginning March 15.

Additional precautions we are taking during the Month of January:
No Trial Classes in January – We are suspending all trial classes for the month of January.
No Spectators / Parents During Class – No spectators will be allowed during the month of January. While we love to welcome parents and friends to watch the classes, it is important right now to limit the number of people inside our space.

Parents: Please Read!
All children must have a mask that fits – Parents, please ensure that your child arrives for class with a mask that fits their face appropriately, over the nose and under the chin. We do have masks on hand to supply in an emergency.
Dropping off your child – We ask that all parents of children in our kids program accompany their child to the door when dropping off for class to ensure that they are wearing a mask and have what they need to be prepared for class.
Picking up – Please be on time to pick your child up at the end of class. We always make sure that kids wait inside for their parents, but we have other classes that begin at the end of the kids classes.

We will continue to take all health and safety measures that enable our members to continue to train safely.

PLEASE READ: News for January 2022

Happy New Year 2022!

Dear JPMAA Community,

We are writing to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to remain closed this week due to current COVID rates.

Because of the rising number of COVID cases over the holiday, we feel this is the best decision to keep everyone in our community as safe and healthy as possible.

We are truly grateful to our entire community of families that has worked with us in many ways over the past year to keep our school open and continue to provide a safe and healthy place to train. We appreciate your support, and could not do this without you!

As of right now, we intend to open for classes on Monday, January 10.

As always, we welcome everyone to make up any classes missed.

We will continue to keep you updated this week. Thank you for your understanding and continued support!

When JPMAA opens for classes, below are the updated COVID-related Health and Safety policies for the month of January.
