Boys & Girls Clubs Community Members, Supporters and Participants,
Like you, we continue to stay up-to-date on state and local announcements surrounding rising COVID-19 cases and public health orders. The Governor’s announcement of a regional stay-at-home order will impact the San Diego County region for at least three weeks once it is implemented. The start date of the order is unclear at this time and is applicable in multi-county regions where hospitals’ intensive care unit capacity has fallen below 15%. We all await specific details from the County on what this means for our region, including when the order will go into effect locally.
Considering the circumstances we are encouraged by the Governor’s support for everyone to maintain their mental and physical health, recommending outdoor activities. We are also encouraged by the news that schools and childcare can continue. Our outdoor pools, Montessori and Back2Clubs distance learning programs will remain open at this time. We have, however, made the decision to temporarily pause our Bulldogs Basketball program, and our Athletics department will delay the start of the winter Big 8 Middle School Sports programs until after the start of the new year.
We will continue to discuss the information that we have at this time and will stay informed of any additional information coming from the health authorities - and its impact on our services over the coming weeks.
We are grateful for your support and understanding during this challenging time. Your safety and well-being continues to be our top priority, and we will continue to follow guidance from health experts and local officials. We urge everyone to remain vigilant in helping us to uphold our COVID-19 safety policies and practices by following public health orders, adhering to travel advisories and continuing to keep us informed of any COVID related events that affect your family. Please do not attend or send children to our programs if there is a known positive, close contact or occurrence of exposure.
Thank you for doing your part to keep the BGC San Dieguito Community safe and healthy.
