New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – The Boys & Girls Club of New Haven is still temporarily closed due to COVID-19.

On Monday, July 19, the organization made the decision to close camp from now until Wednesday, July 28. They found out Friday that three kids tested positive for COVID-19.

Two staff members tested positive last week, and the camp temporarily closed as a result. The Columbus Avenue location was slated to reopen Monday until the announcement was made to extend the temporary camp closure.

The location in West Rock was closed on July 14 and reopened on July 15.

During the closures, staff will continue to work with local public health officials to deep clean and sanitize the facilities to ensure the safety of members, staff, and volunteers.

When the locations reopen, all preventative practices will resume.
