On Friday, July 21st, Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa learned of two separate Club families who had tested positive for COVID-19 that attend our Gregory & Suzie Glazer Burt Club. There is a possibility that Club members and staff who attended the Burt Club between July 19th and July 22nd were exposed to these individuals in the 48 hours prior to the individual’s first COVID symptom or COVID test being administered.
We are collaborating with the appropriate public health officials and adhering to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to privately inform anyone determined to have been in close contact with those individuals.
In response to the confirmed cases, our Gregory & Suzie Glazer Burt Boys & Girls Club will be closed Monday, July 26th through Friday, July 30th for deep cleaning and sanitization of the facility. The Burt Club will reopen on Monday, August 2nd for all Club members who are showing no signs or symptoms of COVID-19.
Safety is the number one priority of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa, and we are doing everything possible to keep our Club members, staff and volunteers protected from the COVID-19 virus.
We continue to work with the Iowa Department of Public Health Officials and are taking all precautionary measures regarding deep cleaning and sanitizing of Club facilities to ensure the safety of Club members, staff and volunteers. In the meantime, we are advising all our Club staff, families, and youth to continue to take precautions as recommended by the CDC. We will continue to update you as we know more. For any immediate questions or concerns, please call our admin office at (515) 242-7925.
