The Board of the Waterbury Area Senior Center has been giving careful consideration to re-opening. Our overriding goal is to ensure that when we re-open, we’re providing a safe space for the seniors in our community. Given the strict guidelines set forth by the State of Vermont around social distancing, maintaining logs for contact tracing, temperature checks and other requirements, we’ve decided that we are not yet in a position to re-open the Center to the public for congregate meals and other activities. The COVID situation remains fluid and we’ll be adjusting and communicating our plans as we move forward.
We continue to deliver Meals on Wheels and we’re working on more ways to engage with our seniors remotely to help fight the isolation many of us are experiencing because of the pandemic. We remain strongly committed to serving the nutritional and social needs of the seniors in our community.
