To our Families and Mentors,
As I am sure you are aware, the COVID-19 outbreak is evolving rapidly. While health officials continue to confirm the level of risk for Londoners remains low, we are monitoring the situation closely and would like to advise that you take normal precautions to protect yourselves against common respiratory ailments.
If, however, you feel unsafe in your community match outings, please consider the following:
1) Avoid crowded places on your match outings (the BBBS craft room might be an option)
2) Stay connected through technology (e.g. over the phone or through video chats)
3) Put your outings on hold
For those in our school-based program, please contact our staff and they will discuss alternate arrangements with you.
For the most up-to-date information about coronavirus, please visit the Ministry of Health’s website at: https://www.ontario.ca/page/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov. If you require more information, please contact the Middlesex-London Health Unit at 519-663-5317. If you have questions related to your mentoring relationship, please contact your Mentoring Coordinator.
This is a difficult and uncertain time for us all. Please be assured that we will keep you apprised of the situation as it relates to your connection with us.
