News came out yesterday that the Maverick Boys and Girls Club was going to have to shut down for a few weeks. They will be closed until August 4th. This during a time when a lot of kids count on them for summer activities. The reason is Covid Cases. There have been multiple cases in the club. While closed the staff will be cleaning and sanitizing the building before they reopen in August.

They are recommending that anyone with any symptoms of Covid to go and get tested. While the club is closing down they are not going to be able to refund any money paid for membership dues while they are closed. The reason being that the money has already been spent.
