Update on Our COVID Safety Policies
Masks are HIGHLY recommended, although not mandated while you are at the Senior Center. We feel with the current COVID surge, people should wear masks indoors. Please consider wearing a mask while you participate in activities at the Senior Center. Staff and volunteers who serve food will be wearing masks. You are free to take off your mask while eating in the café or dining room. Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test is still required for entry. Thanks for helping us continue to provide a safe environment for our community’s seniors.
