"Obviously the safety and health of not only our members but of our staff and volunteers as well is our number one priority at all times," Wausau Boys and Girls Club events marketing director Cassandra Ambrosius said. "We are closely monitoring the situation, we are asking our public health department what they're advising what the school districts plans that they're coming up with and we're really using that as a full picture approach. Already at the club we already clean the club every night with a full cleaning service. But we're making sure to take extra detail with those constant contact surfaces, like tables, all of our games, things like that. So those are just a few of the steps we're taking at this point." she added
The Boys and Girls clubs will still do their best to provide certain services to the community. To hear about those services and updates for the Club click here.
