Coronavirus / Covid 19

Youth Link: NI recognises that staff, programme participants, volunteers and visitors will have concerns about the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.  It is our top priority to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, programme participants, volunteers and visitors.

Youth Link continues to operate “business as usual”, and all teaching, events and activities including open days continue to go ahead as planned and advertised.

However, in light of the most recent guidance from the UK Government re Coronavirus/Covid 19, Youth Link requests that if anyone has even mild symptoms ie a cough, a high temperature or shortness of breath that they do not attend planned sessions / visit Youth Link Training & Resource Centre.

This is a fast moving situation and we are keeping abreast of developments to ensure we have the most up to date information. Should things develop further plans and protocols will be actioned to manage the evolving situation.

We are ready to adjust our response as needed depending on the changing situation. We ask staff, programme participants, volunteers and visitors to heed the advice given, especially regarding practising excellent hand hygiene.
