COVID-19 Updates from the Hills

Update from Neighborhood Youth Services: In observance of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidelines, we are unable to provide program services while also adhering to their guidelines. In congruence with City of Duluth, NYS will be closed starting Tuesday March 17th 2020, until further notice. In the meantime, we are developing a plan on how we can continue to serve our community amidst this public health crisis.


Cambia Hills is continuing to provide mental health services including day treatment in two locations, as well as providing telehealth services for those who prefer to remain home. We are accepting referrals. Inquiries can be with Nicole at (218) 623-6445.

The Hills Youth and Family Services is taking a proactive approach to COVID-19.  The safety and health of youth in our programs and our staff is our top priority.  We are taking precautions based on recommendations from the CDC and Department of Health.

Following the guidelines we will focus on the following:

Hand Hygiene
Covering Cough and Sneezes
Encouraging sick employees to stay home
Environmental Cleaning
Limiting Community Outings
Educating staff on infection control basics
All new admissions will be screened
Non essential visitors are discouraged at the time. All visitors will be screened upon arrival.

We have detailed contingency plans in place should the virus begin to spread throughout our community or any of our staff/youth become infected.

We appreciate your patience and understanding, and we will provide updates as we have them.
