Facts not fear: COVID-19
March 21, 2020
YouthCO is following COVID-19 updates closely. We are continuing to connect with youth most impacted by HIV and Hep C during this time while following the COVID-19 precautions in place. We know that these precautions help us to take care of our communities, including our staff. YouthCO will follow the measures suggested and required by the provincial and federal governments in ways that center our mission and our values.
As much as possible, YouthCO staff are working from home to provide peer education and support to youth impacted by HIV and Hep C. Our physical office location is closed. Phone calls and mail are being forwarded to our team. To find out about our current events, please visit www.youthco.org/events. For YouthCO programming and services, including access to safer sex and harm reduction supplies, please get in touch! We can be reached by phone at 1-855-968-8426, or email at [email protected]
