PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
Rutherford County Senior Center Re-Opening Plan
Effective: December 1, 2021
* The center will be open for participants from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm on December 1, 2021.
* Masks must be worn at all times unless having difficulty breathing during exercise or when actively eating or drinking.
* Participants are encouraged to bring their own mask which needs to be at least a two-ply mask and fits snugly over nose and mouth. Masks will be available at the center for those who need one.
* Congregate lunch will be served at 11:30 AM as dine in only. A maximum of four (4) people will be seated at each table. The dining room will be limited to a maximum of eighty-eight participants (88) at one time. Any additional plates will be sealed and twenty (20) participants may take their lunch to the Art and Craft Rooms at the end of the hall. If there are more participants registered than these three rooms can accommodate, meals will be kept to temperature and these participants will be allowed in the dining room once tables are cleared and cleaned.
* Participants must social distance at all times.
* Participants who cannot tolerate a mask or need a break from the mask, may sit outside or may use the outdoor walking track.
* Bathrooms and high touch surfaces will be wiped down frequently.
* All participants will be screened at the front door, temperature checks will be completed and everyone asked to use hand sanitizer. (All participants are to enter through the front double doors.) Any participant who is running a fever will not be allowed to enter until 72 hours fever free. Every participant must sign a waiver the first time they return to the center and agree to any waiver posted on the My Senior Center kiosk. (If you already signed a waiver this year, there is no need to sign again.)
* Participants must check in at the My Senior Center kiosk located at the reception desk after being screened and cleaning hands. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the center and it is strongly recommended you use it when entering and exiting a room.
* No participants will be allowed in the staff office area. One-on-one appointments for services will be held in a private room with safety measures in place.
* Water fountains are to be used only to refill a bottle or cup. Please do not drink out of water fountains.
* All equipment (including pool sticks and exercise equipment) must be wiped down with sanitizing wipes after use.
* Anyone who does not follow the safety guidelines will be asked to leave.
We hope to make this the best experience we can and it will take compliance by all to re-open in a safe, effective manner.
