Speaking to Children About COVID-19

Children are curious and will ask questions about COVID-19. This is understandable given that they are hearing about it everywhere they turn. Some of them are afraid of the current situation and others just want to better understand what is happening around them. 


In order to put children at ease when asked about COVID-19, these are some steps and tips you could use that can aid in the conversation (Adapted from recommendations by the CBC, Unicef, Kids Health, and the CDC)


Firehall currently closed, programs cancelled until further notice

As a result of the announcement that City facilities will be closed and following the recommendations made by the City of Ottawa, Ottawa Public Health, and Federal government agencies, we have made the difficult choice to cancel all OSCA programming; this includes the Firehall Fitness Centre, the Pottery Studio, Board and Committee public meetings.


COVID-19 News and Resources

As the Coronavirus outbreak evolves in Ottawa, we at OSCA are closely monitoring the situation with Ottawa Public Health and our partner the City of Ottawa. We take the safety, health and wellbeing of our clients, staff and volunteers, very seriously and we are doing our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community and City.


OSCA Cold & Flu Policies and Procedures

The safety, health, and well-being of our clients and staff is a top priority at OSCA. Clients with a sinus infection, cough, and/or fever are asked to refrain from attending programs in order to prevent the spread of colds and flu to others. We ask clients to be diligent in following Ottawa Public Health’s “Guidelines for School and Child Care Facilities on Communicable Diseases and Other Childhood Health Issues” document, which provides recommendations for exclusion due to health issues.
