Alabama senior centers to reopen

SHARE NOW

MONTGOMERY, Ala.- Alabama senior citizen centers will be allowed to reopen for indoor activities as of Monday, April 19, 2021. Senior centers are highly visible focal points within their communities and offer programs and services for older individuals in five main categories: health (including mental health), social, nutritional, educational, and recreational.

“Our senior citizens have looked forward to the time when we could regather at these nurturing senior centers and I am so glad the day has come when the centers can reopen for indoor programs,” said Department of Senior Services Commissioner Jean Brown. Brown said that she looks forward to resuming her visits to senior centers throughout the state.

The decision to reopen for indoor activities at senior centers will be made by each municipality/senior center manager. Moreover, the Department of Senior Services has issued guidelines for indoor activities in accordance with Governor Kay Ivey’s State Health Order of April 7, 2021. These guidelines can be found on the ADSS website.

SylacaugaNews.com reached out to the Sylacauga Parks and Rec. regarding reopening the Maxye Veazey Senior Adult Center. Jim Armstrong says there are no plans to reopen until sometime in May and the senior center is closely monitoring COVID-19 activity in the area. SylacaugaNews.com will update as more information becomes available.
