Coronavirus Precautions and Advice

There’s been intense media coverage about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) so we wanted to let you know about the measures we have in place to reduce risk.

Like most public spaces in the UK, OnSide Warrington Youth Club (WYC) will remain open as usual unless official guidance changes.

We are requesting that all potential visitors to WYC do not visit our centres if they are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or have a continuous cough and/or fever, for the duration of the self-isolation periods. We have informed our staff, volunteers and other stakeholders to do the same.

If we are alerted to any specific increase in risk, we will work with the appropriate authorities to take quick and decisive action.

If you haven’t already, then please take the time to read advice from the NHS and World Health Organisation around minimising risk; this is in the best interests of both you and all the people you come into contact with.

The health, safety, and wellbeing of our young people, staff, visitors and those in the wider community is our top priority and we hope that by everyone taking these actions will give you peace of mind.

We will keep our website up to date with information relating to activities happening at WYC and we look forward to seeing you soon
