Update- Covid-19 Protocol. January 2024
Your Board of Directors continues to monitor on a regular basis the statistics from the Department of Health. At the present time, we are faced with exposure to Covid, Influenza, and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).
It is therefore imperative that we continue to follow our Protocol and not let up.
-Masks are optional and respected.
- Hands are to be sanitized on entering the building.
- All furniture and equipment used in a Program must be sanitized after use. Participants are encouraged to assist with the sanitizing.
- When not feeling well, even if you have not tested positive, do not come to the Centre until you are feeling well.
This Protocol remains in effect until further notice.
