March 16, 2020
Peguis Child and Family Services is an essential service provider. The Agency provides Intake Services from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and After Hours services from 5:00 pm to 9:00 am. The Agency is closed to the public until further notice. Staff are in office and assessing all child protection matters. Agency staff will only be attending emergency matters until further notice.
The Agency does not want to place people at risk of contracting the highly infectious COVID-19 and we need to protect all community members.
As you are aware, the situation continues to unfold and is fluid. The Agency will remain open as an essential service provider to respond to children in need of protection unless a Provincial directive states otherwise.
