Given the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), we want to direct you to official resources that you can access regarding how to protect yourself, what to do if you are sick, and where to get reliable, up-to-date information on the status of this outbreak in Toronto and Ontario.
Public health experts stress the importance of practicing everyday preventive behaviours, such staying at home when sick, coughing and sneezing into tissues and promptly disposing of them, frequently and properly washing hands with soap and water, and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.
The Province has closed schools until at least April 6th to promote social distancing. Social Distancing measures are approaches taken to minimize close contact with others in the community, as you have seen the closing of schools, museums, theatres, recreation centres, libraries and other places where people gather. To cooperate with these measures we have decided to suspend our group programming until at least April 6th. We don’t want to encourage people, especially vulnerable people like seniors and those with chronic conditions to gather here when that might put them at greater risk of getting sick.
We will resume our group programming as soon as it is safe to do so.
Our one-to-one services are continuing and our staff are here to answer questions and offer support. Please don’t hesitate to call if you are looking for advice or help with something.
