August 17, 2020 -- Your Council continues to monitor the ever-changing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and we encourage Greene County seniors, caregivers and community members to stay informed and safe. The CDC has identified older adults and people with chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease, as having a higher risk for more serious COVID-19 illness.
Most in-person Council programs were cancelled in March. In the past months we have worked to put certain program on-line. Please visit our YouTube channel to see what is available. We are beginning to hold some events in-person with masks and social distancing, such as the Medicare 101 program.
Care managers continue to be in contact with our seniors and caregivers, while working with our service providers regarding necessary modifications to the services provided through the Council.
The Council's Xenia and Beavercreek offices are open but are closed to walk-in traffic.
The senior centers operated by the Council, Bellbrook and Jamestown, remain closed. The other senior centers in Greene County have made changes in response to COVID-19, from cancelling large events and activities to closing for a period time. For more information, please contact the specific center directly.
As more information is available and as additional direction is provided from County, State and/or National entities, we will reevaluate and make appropriate changes. We encourage you to seek out additional information through reliable resources such as the following:
