The Clearview Youth Centre will remain open to Clearview youth during Ontario’s move to modified step two of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen. The Centre continues to implement safety procedures and guidelines as required by the province and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
The Youth Centre will remain open for in-person programming and drop-in services from 3:00 – 8:00 PM, Monday to Friday, in January. Strict COVID-19 protocols and procedures remain in place with a capacity limit of five youth, proof of full vaccination, face coverings, COVID-19 screening, and contact tracing required to enter. In addition, diligent hand washing, sanitization and surface cleaning will be conducted repeatedly throughout opening hours.
Youth Centre Coordinator, Shannon McCormick looks forward to remaining open stating, “The mental well-being of Clearview youth is an ongoing priority for both the Clearview Youth Centre and Clearview Township. During a time where isolation is the norm, the ability for youth to attain social, emotional, and mental connections is essential and having a safe, welcoming and inclusive space to gain these connections when needed most is a must.”
In-person and virtual programming, as well as drop-in services, will focus on supporting youths' mental health. For those not comfortable attending the centre at-home activity kits will continue to be offered.
Remaining open for in-person programming and drop-in services allows the Youth Centre to continue advocating for and promoting mental well-being and success for youth in Clearview. For more information, or to request an activity kit, visit www.discoverclearview.ca/youth-centre.
