Statement on Youth Safety in midst of COVID-19 Outbreak

Last Updated March 26, 2020

Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier is committed to the safety of the youth we serve. With heightened awareness and growing concern about the respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus known as COVID-19, BGCL is monitoring, planning, and preparing for public health risks for the youth we serve and their families. We are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the Georgia State Department of Health (DOH) and local school districts.

In light of the announcement of closure by Gainesville City School, Forsyth and Hall County School Districts, all branches of BGCL will be following the lead of Governor Kemp and our partner school districts regarding school closures. BGCL sites serving Gainesville City Schools, Hall County Schools, and Forsyth County Schools will be closed through April 24, 2020. As we work closely with the school districts and health officials, we will determine if further closure will be warranted. We have taken extra steps to deep clean all surfaces at our facilities to ensure that all kids, staff, and volunteers are safe when the Club reopens
