Bryan Boys & Girls Club Closed until August 3
Information provided by Boys & Girls Clubs of the Brazos Valley
Upon reopening, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Brazos Valley leadership and staff began closely monitoring members and staff with daily pre-entry screenings and temperature checks to limit potential exposure to COVID-19. Directives from our Safety Committee, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and the Brazos County Health Department have been closely followed. Today, Monday, July 27, 2020, an employee fell ill during the beginning of their shift. After consulting with a medical professional, they were advised to quarantine for 14 days for suspected COVID-19. Per our strict guidelines, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Brazos Valley will close until Monday, August 3, 2020. Staff have communicated with parents and guardians requesting they also quarantine and follow local health protocols.
Our primary concern has always been and will remain the health and safety of the kids we serve. We serve the kids who need us most. Their parents, guardians, and local community leaders place an enormous amount of trust in our staff and volunteers. It is due to an abundance of caution and in keeping with this commitment we feel compelled to make this difficult call.
For more than 6o years the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Brazos Valley has served countless Brazos County youth age 6-18. Our focus on Youth Development through 5 core program areas: Character & Leadership, Education & Career, Healthy & Life Skills, the Arts, Sports, Fitness & Recreation, and Specialized Initiatives has made a major impact on the lives of those who come through our doors.
