COVID-19 Information

Update: November 30 2020

To The Alberni Community,

As a response to our community’s growing list of COVID-19 exposures, we will be closing our office to the public for the 14 work-days prior to our regularly scheduled Winter Break (Starting December 19th, 2020, and ending January 3rd, 2021.) Please know that there are NO known exposures linked to our facility, staff, or clients at this time – we are just doing all we can to ensure everyone in our community is as safe as possible this Holiday season.

During the period of December 1-18th, we will be available by phone and email from 10:00am to 4:00pm. However, we will not be able to facilitate any intakes, in-person sessions, nor have any visitors to our offices. As an essential service provider for Immigration Refugee, and Citizenship Canada, we will be available to meet clients for emergency/urgent situations, but these meetings will take place off-site and be arranged by a staff with clients directly, upon request.

During the Winter Closure period of December 19th – January 3rd, staff will periodically be checking emails and our office phone line voicemails, and available to meet with clients for emergency/urgent needs upon request, within our abilities.

Our office is set to reopen to limited, scheduled visitors on January 4th, 2021, pending review of the Covid-19 numbers in the community.

We wish you all a safe Winter Break, and look forward to working with you to achieve your learning goals again in 2021.

Stay safe, wear a mask.

The Board of Directors,
Literacy Alberni Society
