COVID-19 – Our services during the pandemic

Current Requirements

Given the risk of spreading the coronavirus (COVID-19), Dans la rue would like to inform the public that the following measures have been implemented in order to continue to offer select services while reducing the risk to homeless youth, staff, volunteers and partners:

  • Mandatory handwashing, frequent disinfection of surfaces and physical distancing rules are in effect at all our facilities.
  • Mask must be worn at all times.

Temporarily suspended services

Until further notice:

  • All volunteer activities and donor/partner visits are discontinued.
  • Music room is closed.
  • Our veterinary outreach clinic is closed.

We are carefully following the instructions issued by government and public health authorities. We are also taking part in virtual meetings with the Service régional des activités communautaires et de l’itinérance to monitor developments as they rise.
