A New and Thoughtful Approach to Recreational Programming
During this time, our work is ongoing with provincial recreation organizations, health authorities and other municipalities to come up with best practices and guidelines for a safe and effective delivery of recreational programs.
The UNA recognizes the need to remain flexible and we continue to assess and reassess our programs on a daily and weekly basis. As such, we will not be having a fixed registration date for summer programs and will be adding programs as we are able, while being mindful of the state of the pandemic in our community and in the province. Our goal is to be responsive to change and to approach this work thoughtfully.
Currently, we have launched a Healthy Seniors, Resilient Communities, a series of programs designed in collaboration with our community to help support seniors by promoting digital and online literacy, curbing self-isolation and aiding seniors who need physical assistance to do essential activities.
We are also running childcare services, in partnership with the YMCA, out of the Old Barn Community Centre. This childcare service is for those who need it most, with priority given to children whose parents perform essential services during the pandemic. The UNA and YMCA considers the health and well-being of children, families and staff as a top priority and are carrying out the service while following enhanced health measures in compliance with public health.
