Inclement Weather Guidelines

At the JCCNV, the safety of our members, guests and staff is our first priority. For that reason, in the event of severe inclement weather, the published hours of operation may have to be modified. The decision to close the facility, delay openings, or close early is based on the weather forecast, current unstable weather and projected unsafe driving conditions. Because our organization is complex, inclement weather may affect each department and service differently. We endeavor to provide whatever programs and services are possible, given the specific requirements of the program and the effect severe weather can have on the facility, accessibility, and staff availability. To that end, the standard policies for each department are listed below and are subject to change as necessary.

Please call the inclement weather hotline for the most up-to-date information at 703.425.3763. Basic delayed openings and closings are announced on WTOP: www.WTOPNEWS.com or listening to 103.5FM or 820AM (WTOP Radio).

Note: We reserve the right to make an independent decision about delays or closings based on local weather conditions and other factors.
