Update from Our JTV CEO Regarding COVID-19
To Our JTV Family With Love
At first, we weren’t sure what to say to our amazing JTV family that would make a difference during these uncertain times. After a lot of consideration, we realized that we all need a happy escape right now. At JTV, we’ve always strived to provide you with entertainment, education, and inspiration. We take pride in being welcomed into the comfort of your home – whether through our broadcast, website, webcast, social media channels, or apps. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy our company, please be assured that we intend to be a source of joy, inspiration, and beautiful things to brighten your day.
That said, we also recognize that we are all in a position to support the collective fight against COVID-19. We have taken many precautions to protect our 1,500 team members and their families, including increasing the level and frequency of cleaning and sanitization, suspending all travel, restricting outside visitors from our campus, implementing “social distancing” and work-from-home policies, and more. Additionally, we’ve taken measures to protect our team members’ jobs, income, and paid time off and are offering childcare support in certain cases. Our customers and team members are all part of our JTV family, and our family remains at the heart of every decision we make. We will persist in doing what we can to provide a healthy and safe work environment so we can continue to confidently deliver the JTV experience you know and love.
JTV has a world-class team ready to serve you. We are humbled to consider you as a part of our family, and that you choose JTV to add happiness, knowledge, and fun to your day. Please know that we are here for you, committed to help brighten your day (and add a little sparkle) in the fascinating world of jewelry and gemstones!
Thank you for being a loyal customer and part of our JTV family. Be safe and be well.
CEO & President, JTV
JTV continues to support you in following CDC guidelines to stay home, wash your hands and practice social distancing. The CDC and many local governments are also recommending wearing cloth face masks in public. We encourage you to visit our Jewel School Projects page for videos and information on how to make a simple cloth face mask and how local businesses are filling the need for face masks in our community.
Catch Your Breath®
JTV is proud to support a new women's health initiative, Respiratory Health Association®, based in Chicago, Illinois. A public health leader since 1906, Respiratory Health Association® is devoted to its mission of preventing lung disease (asthma, COPD, lung cancer), promoting clean air and helping people live better lives through education, research and policy change.
Women’s respiratory health issues are one of the leading causes of death among women and lung cancer kills more women than all other cancers. Nearly 21 million women in the U.S. live with some form of chronic lung disease, and millions more will be diagnosed.
Throughout the month of February, JTV will be advancing knowledge about respiratory health and raising funds for women’s lung health research and programs through Respiratory Health Association’s Catch Your Breath® campaign. The Catch Your Breath® campaign raises funding for research and programs to better understand lung disease and improve treatments. In addition, it increases awareness by educating the public and medical professionals about the disproportionate effects of lung disease on women.
JTV also hosts charity events throughout the year that benefit other local and national non-profit organizations. See below for details about upcoming events and how you can get involved.
