Senior Center Monthly Newsletter

April Newsletter  


                  We are hopeful we will be able to celebrate Easter on Sunday April 12 together!                                                  Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversaries to those celebrating this month.

The Ely Senior Center is closed due to concerns with Coronavirus.  All group activities have been postponed until further notice.

During this time of concern we all need to take precautions and practice safe measures. If you need to go out in public always practice the 6 foot distance between you and others, wash your hands frequently and keep them away from your face. Disinfect surfaces like doorknobs, tables, and handrails regularly. Increase ventilation by opening windows. If possible go outdoors for some fresh air. Stay away from others who may be sick and groups of people.  If you find yourself not feeling well call your family doctor or the hospital has a hotline: 1-866-800-1262 for more information.

If you need medication call your local pharmacy and most are delivering to your home. If it is food or other necessities you are needing call the senior center at 775 289-2742 and we will do our best to get you what you need. Help is a phone call away so don’t go out if you don’t need to.

The senior center is offering regular participants a drive thru meal pick up. We will bring the meal to your car at the back of the building from noon- 12:30. It’s quite easy, just drive your car thru the traffic cones and we will hand the meal to you right in your car!

The Nevada 2020 Census team encourages Nevadans to be counted.   In light of public health concerns, it’s important Nevadans know they can be counted without leaving home.
