At the Old Brewery Mission, public health is a top priority. We are committed to keeping our spaces as clean and safe as possible for all those who frequent our establishments, including the men and women who rely on our services, our staff, volunteers, and generous supporters.
Our teams are working with public health authorities and partner organizations Accueil Bonneau, La Maison du Père and Welcome Hall Mission, to coordinate a response and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
While we are taking extra precautions, it is important to note that preventive strategies used to detect and prevent the spread of COVID-19 are the same strategies our teams use daily to mitigate the spread of other respiratory viruses like influenza.
Time spent living on the street and without adequate medical attention for existing health issues can drastically weaken one’s health. As such, we take seriously our responsibility of providing people experiencing homelessness with a safe, dignified environment where they can begin to rebuild their lives.
For more information on personal measures you can take to prevent contracting and spreading the coronavirus, consult Santé Québec’s web page dedicated to this effect or call Info-Santé by dialing 811 or 1 877 644-4545.
We hope to welcome visitors to our establishment according to our usual fashion very soon.
