BTC Update 1 – March 12, 2020

Dear BTC Friends, 
 
We are sorry to have to let you know that the Brookline Teen Center will close temporarily beginning Thursday, March 12, 2020, due to concerns over COVID-19.
 
We have made this difficult decision because we want to do everything in our power to promote the health and well-being of our community by limiting the potential spread of this virus. As of this time, the Teen Center is not aware of an association with any known case of the virus. We are taking this measure as a precaution.
 
The Teen Center is currently working to identify ways that we can support affected members of our community during this time. We are committed to finding alternative ways to serve those who need us the most. 
 
Our email, info@brooklineteencenter.org, will be closely monitored. Please reach out to us if you have any concerns regarding yourself or others that we might be able to be helpful with.
 
If there is an urgent need, please contact Matt Cooney at 339-225-1604.
 
We will continue to closely monitor the recommendations of the town, state, and the CDC. We encourage you to visit the town’s website for more information.
 
In the meantime, stay safe, wash your hands, and keep your distance!
 
We will stay in touch with weekly updates through email and our website as things progress.
