A note to our Parents about the Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Our commitment to keeping club member’s safe is always our number one priority. Following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it’s important that you know Boys & Girls Clubs of Lansing is doing everything possible to keep your child, our staff and volunteers protected from spreading the virus. We are also closely monitoring reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local health department for all updated information.
As a reminder, we recommend these preventive actions every family should take to prevent exposure to COVID-19.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it away.
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

At this time, there is no evidence that children are more susceptible. Children should engage in usual preventive actions to avoid infection, including cleaning hands often using soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer, avoiding people who are sick, and staying up to date on vaccinations, including influenza vaccine.
