COA Announcements & Updates

In an effort to greatly reduce the impact that Covid-19, also known as Coronavirus, may have on our community, the Town of Monson is taking the following step:

Given that more than 25% of Monson residents are over the age of 60, which is the hardest hit demographic of this virus, services at our Council of Aging/Senior Center will be suspended starting Thursday March 12th 2020. Resumption of these services will be revisited March 31 or sooner as circumstances dictate. The Senior Center will be open for Meals on Wheels deliveries, and some other essential services.  There will be no transportation provided.

We want to remind the public that even if you are not over 60, or do not have a compromised immune system, you could still be exposed. We ask that all of our residents follow these best practices to protect themselves.

1- If you are sick, stay home

2- Frequently wash your hands and avoid touching your face

3- If you need to cough or sneeze, use the inside of your elbow, not your hands, to cover your mouth

4- Practice good social distancing techniques. This means consider using an elbow bump instead of a handshake or hug, and while talking with someone keep a 6 ft distance between you and other people.

We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.
