General Information & Resources

With the quickly evolving COVID-19 situation underway, the MPCC believes that the safety and wellbeing of its community, participants, staff and volunteers is of the utmost importance and should not be overlooked or undermined in any way.

The MPCC is taking this situation very seriously, and is acting upon the advice communicated from the City of Ottawa. To help slow the spread and reduce the curve of those being diagnosed with COVID-19, the Manor Park Community Centre has either cancelled, postponed or rescheduled all programming until April 5th or until further notice.

Preventing the Spread of Colds, Flu, and Viruses

Ottawa Public Health recommends a number of preventive actions to lessen the potential spread of colds, flu and viruses, including:
• Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. (Ottawa Public Health Handwashing Poster)
• Cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow or into a tissue. Wash your hands immediately afterwards and throw the tissue in the garbage.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early and share your recent travel history with your healthcare provider
