The intention is to stay open unless the National Headquarters, Health Department or the CDC or any authorized government agency deems it unsafe.    

In addition, the BGCGCV continues to monitor all updates from the CDC and the California Department of Health Services for updated information. The BGCGCV advises all staff, families, and youth members to take precautions as recommended by the CDC, which provides additional resources such as handwashing guides, and information about how to talk to young people about the spread of COVID-19.

    PLEASE they need to close during this crisis!

    Boys and Girls Club of Greater Conejo Valley 818-706-0905 should be closed. They are not a childcare center they are a club like a community service program, which are all closed. They do not provide “daycare” and specifically not for ONLY those parents that are essential workers, *13(v), any member can attend. They are using school playgrounds and facilities not their own *3.(d). They are using closed school sites. They do not adhere to the limits of 10 people only, or the 6ft requirement, *2(a) they are not an essential business under the state order as they are not a daycare center but a community service program, which have all been shut down. They are going against order LA CO Safer At Home 3/21/20 Specifically Section 2. (a), 3. (d), 13.(v) and CA Executive order N-33-20. They are twisting the orders and their true role to validate being open.

    Please shut this down they pose a risk to our community! Ultimately someone will be held accountable when things go very wrong and COVID19 is spread to children, communities and staff!

    FYI I will be filling a report with the Los Angeles County Public Health Department and the CA State Public Health Department as well.
