Update on GCAIS Groups and Activities

By March 17, 2020News

With the well-being of our Clients and Workers in mind, the following changes have been implemented affecting GCAIS Groups and Activities. These changes are based on:

  • Client concerns
  • Low participant  numbers
  • Minimal staffing numbers
  • Challenges regarding “social distancing”,

All groups and activities will cease from 18th March 2020 – 1st April 2020. Only shopping assistance and the operation of the Gymea Community Centre are exempt. Group leaders will be in contact in regards to next steps for each of the groups.
At this stage, we have NOT been instructed by the authorities to completely shutdown. Our reasons are based on what we have listed above. Further communications will be shared as advise and direction are provided to us.
We are conscious this situation will have an impact on those feeling isolated and vulnerable. As such, we have extended our assisted shopping service and doing all possible to keep our Centre open during it’s normal hours of Monday to Friday 9:30am to 4:00pm.

We ask that each visitor to the Centre take responsibility for their health and avoid entering the Centre if feeling unwell and experiencing symptoms related to the virus.
