CNH is monitoring information surrounding COVID-19 and its potential spread. We recognize this is a growing concern among our community and we would like to be proactive around this manner to ensure that everyone feels safe at our programs.

All programs will have specific guidelines and protocols set in place to ensure the safety of our participants, volunteers and the Neighbourhood House as a whole. Guidelines for each program can be found at the front desk upon registration and from instructors.

COMMITMENT TO THE PUBLIC

Disinfecting high-touch surfaces
Before, during, and after every class, we will disinfect all door handles, light switches, bathrooms, front desk, program equipments and rooms with Health Canada-approved disinfectants.

Protective equipment and physical distancing
We have installed aglass barrier at the front desk to ensure the safety of all participants and staff members. We also have strict physical distancing policies for our programs and have designated spots for distancing around CNH.
