The organization announced the closure in a Facebook post on Monday afternoon.
“NCFC will be closed for the week of November 23 to November 27,” the post said.
“There will be no food hampers this week.”
An NCFC employee told Global News that the closure is in response to Regina’s high COVID-19 case numbers and the centre plans to reopen Nov. 30.
However, they could not say if the centre’s shutdown would be extended if cases continue to rise.
A previous Facebook post from NCFC, that has since been deleted, said “due to COVID-19, and the safety of our children, youth and elders, we cannot accept any donations at this time.”
The NCFC planned to host a winter clothing drive Nov. 24. It has been rescheduled for Dec. 8, as a result of the temporary closure.View link »
