Milford, CT. — The Milford Senior
Center will begin to phase in on-site activities on a limited basis by
reservation starting October 5th along with already scheduled
virtual programs taking place on their YouTube channel and other virtual
Executive Director Leonora Rodriguez
said the “soft” opening will offer members some indoor activities, beginning the
week of October 5th as the Center gradually reopens to members. The
Center will be open from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and seniors planning to attend in-person
activities must call ahead at least one day in advance to make an activity
reservation. No walk-ins for activities will be allowed at this time.
Seniors attending will be asked to
follow the three Ws; Wear a mask. Wash your hands
frequently and Watch their distance from others. Additionally, health
questions with a temperature screening will be taken when arriving.
“Milford’s Senior Center is an important
community asset; I’m happy to begin the process of safely reopening facilities
as we continue to offer the food and nutrition programs which benefit our
seniors.” stated Milford Mayor Ben Blake.
According to Rodriguez, the
Mini-Lunch dine-in option will not reopen until advised and determined by the
Milford Health Department. When the dine-in option reopens, reservations will
be required and seating will be limited.
“We look forward to having our
seniors return to the Center,” said Rodriguez.
“The Center staff has worked very hard in
order to have members return. We have had safety in mind during this entire
process. We are safety trained and we are ready. However, we are remaining
vigilant as the State of Connecticut COVID-19 cases change.” Rodriguez added. “We
look forward into moving ahead, slowly and cautiously, yet optimistically.”
The Center has created a small outdoor
seating area for members who purchase their meal from curbside and wish to have
it outdoors. The Center will also be holding a Consignment Store clearance sale
outdoors on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting October 13th. The Center
is also encouraging members to reach out to us for any additional support. The
