NSCSS / Club 90 COVID-19 information and updates

Elliot Lake, along with Canada and the rest of the world continues to deal with a COVID-19 pandemic that is impacting day-to-day activities locally and abroad and has left people as well as animals ill.  The virus had impacted operations at North Shore Community Support Services and Club 90.

Vaccines are currently being administered to everyone 5 years of age and up.  Fourth doses are now available for anyone 60 years and up.  Those eligible can get their shots at the mass immunization clinics at Collins Hall and Shoppers Drug Mart, as well as the Elliot Lake Family Health Team and other pharmacies.

Club 90 is open.  Staff will be available on-site or by calling (705) 848-2879.

At the present time, the following measures are in effect at Club 90:

  • Club 90 is open.
  • Mental health workers will continue to make outreach calls to check on your well-being.
  • Meals are available for takeout.
  • Physical distancing and wearing face masks are required to reduce spreading COVID-19.
