Director Reggie Caldwell said the Senior Citizen Center will be closed on Mondays.
The state has required senior center directors to limit participants in order to provide social distancing, he said, and some restrictions will be followed to maintain everyone’s safety.
Henry County Office on Aging staff will check temperatures before allowing entrance to the center. Anyone with a temp of 100.4 or higher will not be allowed to stay in the center. All seniors are required to wear masks.
Caldwell said the offices have masks available and hand sanitizer stations. There will be hand sanitizer available throughout the center as well. No outside food or drinks will be allowed in the center. Snacks and bottled water will be provided. “We are asking the seniors to sit in one seat throughout the day,” he said.
