Please help to spread the word.
The Illinois Department on Aging has given us notice to immediately cancel all gathering activities for older adults until further notice. The Department’s guidance is based on directives from IDPH and CDC. This would include senior center dining and group activities. There shall be no eating at the sites. Home delivered meals will still be provided. Carry out meals will also be available. This is a preventative measure to minimize exposure and risks for the safety of seniors. Please call the senior center nearest you for questions, more information and to reserve a carry out meal.
