Children’s Aid Society Issue Statement on COVID-19

0

The Children’s Aid Society of Algoma would like to make the public aware of the following.

The health and well-being of children, families, our community, staff, caregivers and partners are our primary concern. With the current outbreak of COVID-19, we continue to follow
recommendations from public health officials, which include physical infection prevention through social distancing practices.

In order to reduce person-to-person contact, our offices in Sault Ste. Marie, Elliot Lake, Blind
River and Wawa will be restricted to employees, couriers, those with appointments and anyone reporting child protection concerns effective March 17, 2020. The agency’s services continue to remain open and many staff will be working remotely during this time and accessible via phone and email for urgent child protection matters. Any meetings, events or conferences planned during this time period have been postponed.

The public can still access child protection services at any time. If you have any concerns about a child or youth, please contact us 24/7 at CAS Phone numbers

We will update our website and Facebook page as the situation changes. Thank you for your
cooperation.
