Covid-19 Update

The Voyageurs Area Council is moving to the next step of preparation and social distancing amid ongoing issues with the Coronavirus.

Starting Monday, March 23, the Council Service Center will not be open to walk-in traffic at least through April 4.  Work in the building on committee or unit issues, or with any member of the staff, will be by appointment only.  Since almost all of us in the office are working in our own space, members of the staff have been given the option to either work from home or work in the office.  Either way we can continue to participate in social distancing.  It will be important, for the safety of all concerned, that no one arrive at the Council Service Center without an appointment and expect to have entry to the building.  Signs will be posted on the doors and phone numbers available for those that need assistance.
