hello blue quill community,
Blue Quill Community League’s (BQCL) top priority is to ensure our community is safe so we have been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation. After much consideration, the League has decided to implement the following measures to support our community:

Hall office hours have now been extended to Monday to Fridays from 8:30am to 1:00pm. For more information about hall rentals please contact our office manager, Kathryn, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 780-438-3366.

The Blue Quill Community League Hall (BQCL) is now open with limited services. Hall office hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30am to 1:00pm. For more information about hall rentals please contact our office manager, Kathryn, by email email@example.com or by phone 780-438-3366.
April 27th, 2020 Update
At this time, the BQCL hall (including play school and SWESA office) still remains closed until further notice. This includes outdoor facilities including our tennis courts, basketball courts, rink, and baseball/soccer fields.
Baseball and soccer fields will be open for casual use beginning May 1st, 2020, weather permitting. Users of baseball and soccer amenities must continue to adhere to two metre physical distancing rules, ensure gatherings are kept to 15 people or fewer, and avoid or limit touching commonly touched surfaces like sporting equipment or stationary field objects. We understand the benefits of outdoor activity, and we want to help keep everyone safe. Please keep your physical distance and interact safely with others when outdoors.
private hall rentals
All private hall rentals have been cancelled, until further notice. Individuals who have booked the hall will be contacted by the League to refund any advance rental payments made. No additional bookings will be accepted at this time.
211 Edmonton has prepared a Summary of COVID-19 resources (google sheet) in Alberta, with a specific tab for Edmonton resources. See the tabs along the bottom for regionally specific information.
In an effort to support seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council has developed a COVID-19 resource web page, which will be maintained and updated regularly in the coming weeks. This page includes updates from seniors’ organizations and information to support seniors and their families during this challenging time.
End Poverty Edmonton (multilingual resources)
For immigrants, refugees, and newcomers, information about the COVID-19 pandemic has been translated into different languages for ease of access.
The Government of Canada has released details scams that have arisen from the COVID-19 pandemic (see link above). Currently, opportunistic fraudsters want to profit from consumers’ fears, uncertainties and misinformation. Fraudsters are exploiting the crisis to facilitate fraud and cyber crime. This bulletin provides helpful information about reported scams so you can take precautions to protect yourself.
The League is exploring options for safe ways to get out (or stay in) and stay connected while adhering to social distancing principles like ravine walks or online presentations and workshops. We will post more information shortly.
Let us know if there is something you would like to do or share with the community during this time. If you have an idea for an online workshop or presentation or if you would like to be involved connect with us!
The League is following the information provided by various federal and provincial health agencies and all levels of government and is committed to implementing appropriate measures as new information emerges.
Stay safe Blue Quill!
The Blue Quill Community League
