The Sault Ste. Marie YMCA released the following statement today regarding the facility's Child Care Centres and March Break programming:
Yesterday we committed to regularly updating you on program changes. Today we have made the difficult decision to close all of our Child Care Centres and March Break Camps effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020. These programs will reopen on April 5, 2020.
The McNabb Child Care Site and March Break Daycamp will be open tomorrow on Monday, March 16, 2020 in order to provide families with 24 hours to find alternative care. Families will not be charged child care fees during this closure and refunds will be provided for day camps if applicable. Ensuring the health and safety of our children, families, staff and communities is and always will be our primary objective.
At this time the fitness and aquatics centre remains open with previously announced protocols and advice that was provided by Algoma Public Health in place. We continue to speak to our Public Health officials on a daily basis and ask that you continue to monitor our Facebook page for regular updates.
