Dear Valued Maltby Centre Clients,
On March 12, 2020, Maltby Centre became aware that the Government of Ontario via the Ministry of Education decided to close public schools for two weeks following March break as a way of limiting the spread of COVID-19. In light of this announcement, the Maltby Centre has decided to suspend face-to-face services with our valued clients for three weeks beginning Monday, March 16, 2020. However, we are still here and are committed to providing the best service that we can during this time. We are offering service by telephone and/or by video link through your Smart phone or computer. While there are no documented COVID-19 cases in our region, we are making this decision proactively to prevent potential spread and ensure the safety of our valued clients and team.
This could be a trying time causing stress and anxiety for you and/or your child. We would be happy to work with you on strategies to decrease the stress and anxiety while talking through how to speak with your children about COVID-19.
Please expect to hear directly from your contact at Maltby Centre to work with you around an appropriate plan for your service. If you have any immediate questions, please call us during business hours at 613-546-8535 or on the crisis after-hours line at 613-544-4229.
Karen Fleming, RN, M.Ed.
