Dear Neighbors, Parents, Youth, Volunteers, and Partners,
In response to the concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to keep you informed about the steps UNI is taking to slow the spread especially for those most at risk in our community. Since there is currently no vaccine to protect against COVID-19, at this point, the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus that causes it.
In order to reduce the risk of exposure, UNI will be taking the following steps:
Update, effective March 25, 2020: In order to reduce the risk of exposure, UNI's office (All Saints Neighborhood Center) will be closed to the public through April 14, 2020.
We will re-evaluate weekly and we will provide updates when needed.
Our staff is still working and are here to help support the community during this difficult and unsettling time. We can be reached at 313-841-4447 Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. All staff can be reached this number and ready to be a support as well as provide information regarding resources during this time. Do not hesitate to reach out.
As information and resources around the COVID-19 develops, we will update information for our families, parents, students and partners.
If you or somebody you know is experiencing fever, cough, or shortness of breath, with possible exposure to someone who has traveled or potentially been exposed to COVID19 encourage them to seek medical attention. If you have general questions about the outbreak or need assistance during this time, please call us at 313-841-4447.
