At Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Ohio (BGCO), ensuring a healthy and safe environment for members and staff is our number one priority. We are closely monitoring CDC and Ohio Department of Health guidelines in preparation for resuming peer-to-peer learning and providing crucial support for parents and guardians returning to the workforce. While we have set a target date of June 15 to open some sites, openings will be a phased process with reduced capacity. All youth and staff will be screened for body temperature before being permitted to enter a Club. Social distancing will be practiced as well as masks required. Safety protocols have been formulated in accordance with CDC and Ohio Department of Health guidelines, which call for a reduction in our capacity. As a leader in out-of-school programming for children and teens, we understand the important role this programming plays in mitigating learning loss and promoting healthy lifestyles. We will increase our capacity as soon as it is safe to do so. In the mean time we would like to start a wait list for each site.
