“The health of our community is very important to us. Given the increasing number of cases of COVID-19, Peterborough Youth Services has decided to close in-person services to clients. Effective Monday, March 16th, 2020 Peterborough Youth Services will close the office and suspend in-person meetings with clients. We will continue to assess and will provide a re-open date once determined. We understand that the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 situation can be overwhelming and stressful. It is ok to feel uneasy, scared, nervous or anxious. We know that our services are vital to the clients and families that we support. Our Counsellors will continue to provide services and supports by phone and our agency phone line (705-743-1681) will remain open. Please continue to follow us for updates.”
