COVID-19 Information

Friday, March 13, 2020

Kind, confidential. Like help is coming. Not alone.
COVID-19 has been identified as a pandemic and as such Nexus Youth Services is following the direction provided by our federal, provincial and municipal governments. Please refer to the Region of Peel and Canada Health websites for reliable information about COVID-19.

Our first and highest priority is the health and safety of our clients and staff. To support this, we are implementing preventative measures that will be reviewed on a daily basis.

Office & Youth Centre Closure

Social distancing involves avoiding gatherings with a large number of people, and maintaining personal space whenever possible to limit the ability of the virus to spread.

To support social distancing protocols, our office at 85A Aventura Court and the Nexus Youth Centre will be closed to all clients and visitors until further notice. There will be no face-to-face meetings with clients and/or other visitors. We are working with our staff to develop alternate ways to support you during this time.
