The Redmond Senior Center Board of Directors held an emergency meeting Thursday to address the issue of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact on Central Oregonians, particularly older individuals.
In compliance with state and federal directives, and in consultation with the Deschutes County Health Department, the board of directors voted to close the center until further notice. All services and programs are suspended, except the Meals on Wheels Program. This program will operate as usual, delivering meals to over 100 individuals, Monday through Friday.
“We are especially grateful to our committed volunteers who are continuing to provide meal deliveries. Protocols for deliveries will align with CDC and health department guidelines so we are able to protect the health of the people we are so privileged to serve, and the volunteers who make this program successful,” the release said.
“Our primary focus continues to be providing quality senior services that include the safety of our seniors, volunteers, and staff.”
