A Covid-19 Update from Our Centers

COVID-19 continues to keep the Milwaukee County Senior Centers closed. At this time, we have been informed that the Centers will remain closed through March 2021, and possibly longer depending on conditions at that time. The advent of a COVID vaccine offers hope that the Centers will be able to re-open sometime in 2021.

Our primary concern is the safety of our members and staff. Be assured that we will re-open as soon as Milwaukee County deems it safe to do so.

Until we can re-open, SOA staff are on-site at the center daily from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30p.m. You can contact the center with questions, if you need a referral, or just need to chat for a few minutes. We continue to provide carry-out meals at each Center. Please call your Center before 11:00 a.m. the day before to reserve a meal. Meals can be picked up at the center between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. 5 days a week. Just drive up, and our staff will bring the meal to you. If you do not drive, you can arrange for a friend or family member to pick up a meal for you.

While we remain closed, SOA staff will continue to reach out and connect with you through mailing, emails, phone calls, and wellness calls. Additionally, we are ramping up virtual programming on our Facebook page,  YouTube channel for programming, and Zoom calls. To support these programs, SOA is planning to launch a technology initiative in first quarter to help individuals connect with these online programs. Watch for further announcements about this exciting new program! 

SOA is also offering some in-person programs at offsite locations with appropriate safety protocols and limited attendance. You can check out all our program offerings in The Connection magazine on our web site, or call your center for additional information. Printed versions of The Connection are also available.

We miss you and are looking forward to the time when we can once again gather in person. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Peace,

The SOA Management Team
