Throughout December 2021 there has been a rapid spread of the new, Omicron, variant of the COVID-19 virus. Cases of COVID-19 are higher now than they have ever been with daily infection rate records being exceeded on a regular basis. The Government has already put a number of precautions in place and it is likely that more will follow shortly.
With all this in mind it has been decided that we will not be re-opening the Headway North Cumbria Day Centre on 10 January 2022, as originally planned, but will delay until the situation becomes clearer and we can be confident about re-opening safely. We will continue to monitor the situation but it is unlikely that we will be able to re-open the Day Centre until at least February 2022.
It is appreciated that this will be a disappointment to many, but this decision has not been taken lightly, and has been made in the best interests of our members and volunteers.
