Public Comments Covid-19 Update - Starting July 6th, Woodview will begin a gradual re-opening of some locations to be able to support clients and families with scheduled face to face appointments

To ensure everyone’s safety, the re-opening of buildings will be a phased-in approach and in line with the province’s re-opening plan

Clients and families will continue to have the option to visit in-person for an appointment or to continue to receive support by phone or video

At this time visits, in-person groups, camps, and school programming will not be available until further notice

Clients and families will receive program-specific information from their worker

The agency continues to receive referrals from families and other agencies through the centralized access mechanisms and supports individuals on the waitlist
