EUGENE, Ore. – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Emerald Valley reopened its doors this week.

The club usually serves about 180 kids, but now they are only taking in 50. In hopes of preventing the spread of coronavirus, they are keeping them in small groups of ten or fewer and ensuring everyone maintains six feet of distance.

They are also making sure there is frequent hand washing and staff are wearing personal protective equipment.

As an added precaution, each child and staff member is screened before they enter with temperature checks and health questions.

“Once we realized that we could open our doors for summer childcare, we quickly readied for doing that, learned all the new rules and regulations, things like PPE and then now have worked diligently for two weeks and we’ve got the doors open,” said CEO Matt Sorensen.

The club said community members have stepped up to help, including beautifying the grounds outside the club and donating backpacks and school supplies.
