The past few months have truly been very challenging for us all. COVID-19 has certainly changed our lives and how we do things. I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and staying safe.

Since we have been able to reopen on May 14; the Irish Centre has been doing fairly well. With the public health measures in place (sanitizing requirements, capacity restrictions, live entertainment restrictions, social distancing and most recently mandatory face masks); we have been trying quite diligently to stay on top of the changes while keeping our members safe and informed.

We have rearranged tables and chairs to ensure social distancing, there is hand sanitizer available when you first come in and on each of the tables, tables are wiped down and sanitized, the sign in book helps us keep track of those visiting the Irish Centre, and disposable masks are available.

Posters can be found in the main entrance area of the Centre to remind our members to practice social distancing, help prevent the spread, mandatory face masks, etc.

Even with all this in place, we will only be successful in stopping the spread of COVID-19 if we ALL follow the rules.
Take care and stay safe.
