Early Learning Center closed for cleaning

Facility told individual was exposed to COVID-19

HOLLIDAYSBURG — The Blair Regional YMCA’s Early Learning Center on Reservoir Road is closed until Monday for cleaning after being told an individual was exposed to COVID-19.

YMCA officials learned of the coronavirus exposure Wednesday afternoon and sent a letter out to parents and staff, WTAJ-TV reported.

Executive Director Sharon Jones said that disinfecting smoke bombs will be the first step in the cleaning process.

“They’re placed in all of the facilities, every room, every gymnasium, the kitchen, everything that we have, they’re placed in there and they sit for 24 hours,” she told WTAJ. The following day, foggers will be used to spray disinfectant on all touchable areas.

Then crews will clean all of the highly touched areas one more time.
