NSCSS / Club 90 COVID-19 information and updates

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.

COVID-19 infections have occurred in Elliot Lake, as well as Blind River and Massey.  More contagious and infectious variants of the virus have been confirmed locally.  The situation is since improving and Ontario is in Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen.

Vaccines are currently being administered to everyone 12 years of age and up.  Those eligible can get their shots at the Shoppers Drug Mart clinic or at the Collins Hall clinic.

Gatherings are currently limited to 25 people indoors and 100 outdoors.  Restaurants, bars and clubs are permitted to be open for indoor and outdoor dining, as well as takeout and delivery.  Most retailers are now open for in-person shopping.  Curbside pick-up and delivery will continue to be available.  Wearing face masks and social distancing are required to help reduce the chance of getting infected by the COVID-19 virus.  Everyone is encouraged to get vaccinated for COVID-19 if not done so already.

The staff of Club 90 have returned to the offices and are getting the Club ready for reopening under Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen. Club 90 will reopen on June 21 with programs and activities resuming.

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

  • Stay home except to buy groceries or medication, to go to medical appointments, to get vaccinated, to walk dogs, or to get outdoor exercise.
  • Club 90 has reopened.  Staff are available to help you.
  • Mental health workers will continue to make outreach calls to check on your well-being.
  • Meals will be available.
  • Physical distancing and wearing face masks are required to reduce spreading COVID-19.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Book your appointment to get vaccinated.  You can get their shots at the Shoppers Drug Mart clinic or at the Collins Hall clinic.

Please note that other social services and businesses have also had to modify their programs and close operations.

  • "The Beehive", a drop-in centre run by the Consumers Survivors Initiative has reopened.
  • Cafes and lunch programs at the Salvation Army and Grace Christian Centre are available on a take-out basis.
  • The Elliot Lake Food Bank is still open but asks you to call ahead for an appointment at (705) 461-3663.
  • AJ Bus Lines shopping and casino trips have been suspended.
  • Community events have been cancelled, postponed or modified to comply with public health regulations.

Face Mask

Wearing masks is 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.

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.
