Union-Snyder Agency on Aging, Inc. Senior Centers: Temporary Closure Due to COVID-19
The four (4) Senior Centers located in Union & Snyder County will temporarily close beginning Tuesday, March 17th as a precautionary measure for the older adults of the County. The Senior Centers are located in Lewisburg, Selinsgrove, Penns Creek and Beaver Springs.
The Centers will be closed a minimum of two weeks as the Board of Directors and the Agency Administration continue to monitor the recommendations of the PA Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding one of our most vulnerable populations. Both the Department of Health and CDC report older adults are at a higher risk of becoming very sick from the coronavirus.
Older adults who routinely attend the Centers and have specific needs will temporarily receive meals prepared by the agency’s contracted meal provider. These meals will be delivered on a weekly basis during the Centers’ temporary closures.
If you have concerns regarding an older adult in your community, please contact the Agency on Aging for assistance at either 570-524-2100 or (570) 374-5558.
The PA Department of Health continues to stress the role we all play in helping to reduce the coronavirus:
- Cover coughs or sneezes with your elbow. Do not use your hands.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Clean surfaces frequently, including countertops, light switches, cell phones, remotes, and other frequently touched items.
- If you are sick, stay home until you are feeling better.
