COVID-19/Coronavirus Update

Dear Community members, Club member parents, and families,

Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County (BGCSLC) is committed to ensuring the safety of the youth and families we serve. With a heightened awareness and growing concern about the respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus known as COVID-19, BGCSLC is monitoring, planning, and preparing for public health risks for the youth we serve, their families and our staff. We are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Florida State Department of Health (DOH).

Our partners at St Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) are also currently engaging in contingency planning in the event the virus spreads to our area and schools. All branches of BGCSLC will monitor actions of SLPS regarding school closures and ‘social distancing’, as they work closely with state and local health officials on responding to potential illness outbreaks that might lead to school closures.

For this reason, all Boys & Girls Club school-based Clubs and Clubhouses will be closed during the week of spring break March 16-March 23. Please check with us throughout the week for additional updates at www.bgcofslc.org/blog and Facebook.

 Our intention is to assess the situation daily and react swiftly to any new developments.

The Florida State Department of Health has established a call center to address questions from the public. If you have questions about what is happening in Florida state, how the virus is spread, and what to do if you have symptoms, please call (850) 245-4444.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding COVID-19
