Mansfield Senior Center

The New Year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, 

waiting to be written.”

Senior Center Update:

We wanted to take a moment to update you on some tough decisions we’ve made this week. We want everyone to know that, first and foremost, we are committed to staying open to provide socialization, support and essential services, and that Mansfield Senior Center staff are here and available for you. However, with COVID cases at unprecedented high in our state and communities, we feel it is safe and prudent to make some adjustments to our programming out of precaution. 
Medical Transportation
We have decided to suspend the use of volunteers for medical transportation until further notice, and we have cancelled our recreational trips for the rest of the month. Instead, transportation to medical appointments will be available as always, but we will be having Dave transport people individually in our van.  Please arrange for this service by contacting Outreach Coordinator Yamil Figueroa at 860-487-9875 or figueroay@mansfieldct.org.
Cancelled Programs
We have cancelled TVCCA’s New Years meal on 1/19. We have also cancelled our Movie Night on 1/18.  
Events Still Planned, but Protocols in Place
We will proceed with the rest of the events listed in our January Sparks, provided instructors, presenters and volunteers are able to do so safely. Our two scheduled Fresh Friday drive-throughs will proceed as planned. 
For all in-person activities aside from TVCCA Congregate Lunches, masking will be strictly enforced, there will be absolutely no food or drinks allowed, and participants will be asked to social distance. 
We’ll Keep You Informed  
We will continue to evaluate programming on a week to week basis, and we will communicate any immediate changes via phone calls, email and our Facebook page. As always, if you have concerns, questions or feedback, please let us know.
We so wish we weren’t back in this position, but here we are…so we will move forward into 2022 with open minds, open hearts and patience. Please stay safe, be smart, and know that we are here for you.
