West Side Family Place will be suspending all programs as of 12 pm, March 16, and will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
It is our utmost priority to make sure everyone is safe, and to keep on with our activities at this point of time could put our families, staff, volunteers and friends at risk. We will continue to stay in close contact with government and health officials to determine when we will resume our programs. Please continue to check back through our website and social media for updates.
We urge everyone to take calm precautions and do their best to reduce the risk of spreading illness. These are a few easy ways to ensure lower risk of contracting and sharing any virus:
– Wash your hands frequently with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds after using the washroom, sneezing, coughing, preparing food, and touching public surfaces.
– Avoid touching your nose, mouth, and eyes.
– Cough and sneeze into the crease of your elbow.
– Do your best to stay home if you present cold or flu-like symptoms and call 8-1-1 if you think you may have COVID-19 or are experiencing an unexplained shortness of breath.
