Dear YMCA Members and North Bay Community Participants,

Unfortunately, last night we were advised by one of our rental groups in North Bay, that one of their participants was confirmed with a positive case of COVID-19.

I know this news is very unsettling, but I want to reassure you that we are working diligently with the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit. All participants at risk of exposure have been contacted by Public Health and are following their direction.

The rental group was in our facility on Chippewa Street after hours and there was no contact with our general membership. The group continued to practice all safety measures including:

-Frequent hand washing

-Disinfected all equipment in use

-Wearing of masks while in the facility and while playing

-Sign in and screening of all participants

We remain open and I want to reassure you that we will continue to keep you informed of any new updates. In keeping with our core values, being transparent is paramount, that is why we are informing all YMCA staff, volunteers, and members, and have released our public statement.

In closing, should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to speak with a supervisor, manager or myself.

Thank you for your continued support, stay well.

Sincerely,

Helen Francis
YMCA Chief Executive Officer

Dear YMCA Child Care Families,

Unfortunately, last night we were advised by Public Health Sudbury & District that one of the children at our Markstay Early Learning Child Care Centre (Sudbury District) was confirmed with a positive case of  COVID-19.

I know this news is very unsettling, but I want to reassure you that we are working diligently with Public Health Sudbury & District. All participants at risk of exposure have been contacted by Public Health and are following their direction.

It’s important to note that Public Health Sudbury & District have only requested the dismissal of the one classroom/cohort where the exposure occurred. As an extra precaution the YMCA has decided to close the full centre to undergo a deep cleaning and disinfecting of the centre.

All staff and children identified to be at risk of exposure will self-isolate for a minimum of 14 days, and the affected classroom/cohort will re-open once approved by Public Health.

I want to reassure you that we will continue to keep you informed of any new updates. In keeping with our core values, being transparent is paramount, that is why we are informing all YMCA staff, families and preparing a public statement which will be posted on our website.

In closing, should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to speak with your supervisor, manager or myself.

Thank you for your continued support, stay well.

Sincerely,

Helen Francis
YMCA Chief Executive Officer
