Statement of Health & Concern

Dear WCCC Friends and Patrons,

As everyone must know by now, the State of Georgia has been hit with the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  In order to prevent the illness from spreading to our WCCC family, we are closely monitoring communications from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and Governor Kemp's office.  I’m sure by now you all know the prevention methods about cleaning your hands, covering your sneezes and coughs, avoiding close contact with people, cleaning and disinfecting, and wearing a face mask if you are sick and need to go to the doctor’s office or supermarket.

According to all three organizations, older adults who are 60+ and at high risk can be vulnerable to the disease, especially those individuals who have serious chronic and underlying medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease. I would also add cancer patients to that list as their immune systems are compromised by treatments.

Since most of our patrons and staff fall within that age range, we are committing ourselves to do everything we can to support their health and safety by practicing social distancing and limiting social events.  You can help us in that endeavor by minimizing contact with the elderly when you are sick, however, we encourage you to look after them by checking in on them with a brief visit or by phone, assist with errands, bringing meals, and checking on their health.

Update (3/29/2020):  In light of Governor Kemp's press conference last week (3/26/20; executive order 03.26.20.02) to keep schools closed until April 24th, our facility will also be closed to all classes and social events until then. Stayed tuned for updates.
  
If you are involved with the Center for Active Living/Kroger food voucher program, you may come into the Winterville Center’s office on Mondays from 9 am to 11 am to receive your voucher.

If you have any questions or concerns, we are here for you. More than ever, we are determined to protect those among us who are the most vulnerable.

Be safe and stay healthy,

JoAnn Snow
