Senior Center Begins ‘Transitional Plan’ For Re-Opening May 3

WAYNE – Senior Center officials in Wayne have posted exciting news in their May newsletter as they begin to re-open to the public.

According to ‘The Senior Star’, members with the Center Staff and Wayne Senior Center Board have been working with the Northeast Nebraska Area Agency on Aging (NENAAA), Public Health Department and library staff in forging a path over the next couple months to resume operations.

The group tentatively has a ‘transitional plan’ that has been approved by the NENAAA. Starting on Monday, May 3 the Wayne Senior Center will begin their first phase which will be a soft-opening.

Doors will be open from 7:30 – 11:30 a.m. for their morning walk, FROG exercises, coffee time and socialization. During this phase it is recommended to not have contact social activities such as cards, puzzles, pool, quilting and more.

The Senior Center meals service will continue as planned for the month of May with drive-thru and meals on wheels.

Senior Center officials are asking if you do have a cold, cough, runny nose, sore throat, muscle aches or fever to not come to the center.

The Wayne Senior Center Staff and Board will continue to meet regularly to monitor how things are going. A successful reopening path will indeed be a ‘team’ concept and, working together, they can finally get back to the Wayne Senior Center we all know and love.
