Children's Alley temporarily CLOSED
Late this afternoon Boulder County Public Health released new information that a person in Boulder County has tested positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and was in contact with the public while sick. 
 
In light of this new information, and just hours after our previous email, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Children's Alley effective immediately until Friday, March 20. 
 
We apologize for the inconvenience and know that this will impact the families we serve. Our highest priority is always the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, program participants and Children's Alley families and children, and we hope that this temporary closure will help keep us all healthy and safe. 
 
We are staying up-to-date with Boulder County Public Health and will communicate our reopening as soon as it is a possibility. We are planning to remain temporarily closed through Friday, March 20, and will assess public health recommendations at that time to determine if we will reopen. 
 
Below are some resources we shared earlier, and please don't hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns:

To prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses, it’s important to follow the CDC recommendations below for staying healthy:
 
  • Stay home if you are sick. 

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 

  • Clean hands frequently with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub. 

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 

  • Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.

This is a challenging time for our YWCA family and the community. We are in this together. Our mission remains at the center of our work and we will not stop until the world sees women, girls and people of color they way we do. Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable. 

 
Take Care,
