NSCSS / Club 90 information and update

COVID-19

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 ill.  The virus had impacted operations at North Shore Community Support Services and Club 90.

Ontario, along with other parts of Canada is currently experiencing a second wave of COVID-19 with new infections rising daily. 
COVID-19 infections have occurred in Elliot Lake, as well as Blind River and Massey recently.  New restrictions are being imposed to limit the virus spread.  At this time, Club 90 remains open.  Meals, activities, one-on-one counselling and group sessions are still available subject to COVID-19 protocols.

Gatherings are currently not allowed at private residences and are limited to 10 people in indoor public places and 25 people outdoors.  Restaurants, bars and clubs are permitted to be open with limited dining room capacity at this time until midnight.  Retailers are open, but may restrict the number of custemers entering the premisis.  Wearing face masks and social distancing are required to help reduce the chance of getting infected by the COVID-19 virus.  Non-essential travel to areas with high COVID-19 infections is not allowed to Toronto and Peel Region where lockdowns are in effect.  Travel to Kitchener-Waterloo,Oshawa-Durham region, Ottawa, Windsor and York Region is not recommended.  People returning from these regions will need to self-isolate for 14 days upon their return.

At the present time, the following measures are in effect at Club 90:
  • Club 90 is open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday to Friday except statutory holidays.  One-on-one and group counselling will continue to be available. - see attachment.

Face Mask

Wearing masks is now mandatory in all indoor public spaces across Ontario.  The provincial government passed regulations requiring everyone to wear a face mask while indoors in public spaces including Elliot Lake Transit, grocery and retail stores, banks, restaurants and bars, medical and personal services, automotive garages, places of worship, and anywhere else, indoors or outdoors, where physical distancing is difficult or impossible, like parking lots.  Algoma Public Health has mandated similar requirements to wear masks throughout the Algoma District.  Click here for policy.

Travel to areas with high COVID-19 cases such as the Toronto and Peel Region area is not allowed because of the high risk of contracting the virus.  Anyone returning from these areas, and from foreign countries must self-isolate for 14 days.

Mental Health Workers will be available Monday to Friday 9-5 to offer support via phone and email (contact information below), as well as one-on-one counselling.
