When you arrive for any activity, including those that are outside the building such as Horseshoes, we will follow the Board of Health requirements of a temperature check and screening questions and you must wear a mask. Once your activity has completed, you will need to leave the building.
We are sincerely sorry but we must adhere to strict Covid-19 protocols to preserve each other’s well-being. We are proud of the fact that we are among the first senior centers to reopen but want to stress that we are doing so with extreme caution maintaining the 3 W’s at all costs:
- Ensuring the Washing of hands often
- Reminding each other to watch our distance – maintaining 6 feet separation
- Wearing our masks
We look forward to seeing you and hope you understand our NEW NORMAL built on fostering each other’s health and wellness. The Coronavirus pandemic has been stressful for all of us. Fear and anxiety about the disease has been overwhelming. Social distancing makes us feel isolated and lonely. Please know we are here for each of you, Monday to Friday 8.30 AM to 4 PM. If we can help by listening, helping you locate a service or 2 or complete a form for services or support do call us at 978 671 0916.
Your health and wellness is our priority hence we will enforce strict mitigation and hygiene policies as we move forward.
Some programs that do not allow for 6 feet social distancing among patrons will not be back for some time. These are:
- Apex Hearing Care
- Blood Pressure Checks
- Party Bridge
- Computer Room Use
- Computer Classes
- Mah Jongg
- Pool - Ladies and Men’s groups
