Algoma Public Health has advised of possible exposure to COVID-19 at the Thessalon Northern Credit Union Branch at 186 Main St.
APH has defined the exposure as low-risk, but advises anyone who visited the location on March 11 and 12 to self-monitor for symptoms.
A full statement from the Northern Credit Union reads as follows:
Northern Credit Union is advising members that visited the Thessalon branch, located at 186 Main Street, Thessalon Ontario, on March 11, 2021, and March 12, 2021, that they may have had a low risk of exposure to COVID – 19. Anyone who visited the branch on these dates must self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
If symptoms develop, they must isolate immediately and seek testing, even if symptoms are very mild. Northern Credit Union is working in close contact and co-ordination with Algoma Public Health Unit and is following their response protocols.
As a precautionary measure, Northern Credit Union made the difficult decision to restrict member access to their Thessalon branch until further notice.
During this time the branch will undergo deep cleaning to disinfect and sterilize the premises following our established protocols and Algoma Public Health guidelines.
The temporary closure of the Thessalon branch will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and the public will be notified when the branch is re-opened.
Northern is committed to supporting members through their True North Hub Contact Center and other self-serve channels. ATM service also remains open and accessible. “
The health and well-being of our employees and members is our top priority”, said Richard Adam, President, and CEO of Northern Credit Union. Northern is taking every measure to ensure the safety of its employees and members and is closely following all recommendations of Algoma Public Health. Northern thanks all their employees and members for their patience during this difficult circumstance.
