Dear Families,

On August 3, 2020, we learned that a Boys & Girls Club Staff Member at our Salinas Clubhouse tested positive for COVID-19. The Staff Member serves in a support capacity and had limited to no interaction with Club Members. Still, there is a slight chance that Staff and Club Members at the Salinas Clubhouse were exposed to this individual in the two weeks prior to the date of diagnosis.

We are collaborating with the appropriate public health officials and adhering to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to privately inform anyone determined to have been in close contact with this employee.

If you or your child are having symptoms that align with COVID-19, please contact your healthcare provider or, if you do not have a healthcare provider, please contact your local health department immediately and indicate that you may have been exposed to the virus.

We are taking all precautionary measures including deep cleaning and sanitizing the Clubhouse to ensure the safety of Members upon return.

Respectfully,
Ron Johnson
President & CEO

Estimadas familias,

El día 3 de agosto de 2020, nos enteramos de que un miembro del personal del Boys & Girls Clubs de Salinas fue detectado como infectado del COVID-19.  Este empleado trabaja en una capacidad de apoyo y tiene contacto muy limitado o mínimo con los Miembros del Club.  De todas maneras, existe la posibilidad de que algunos empleados y Miembros del Club hayan sido expuestos al contacto con este individuo durante las dos semanas previas a la fecha del diagnóstico.

Estamos colaborando con los oficiales de salud pública apropiados y acatando las recomendaciones provistas por los Centros de Prevención y Control de Enfermedades, para informar de una manera privada a todas las personas que puedan haber tenido contacto cercano con este empleado.

Si usted o su niño(a) tiene(n) síntomas que se asemejan al COVID-19, por favor comuníquese con su médico o, si usted no tiene un médico, por favor comuníquese inmediatamente con el Departamento de Salud Publica en su localidad, y explíqueles que hay la posibilidad de que usted haya sido expuesto al virus.

Estamos tomando todas las precauciones necesarias, incluyendo la limpieza a fondo y desinfección total del Club para asegurar la salud de todos los Miembros cuando estos(as) regresen.

Respetuosamente,
Ron Johnson
Presidente y CEO
