Senior center to reopen Nov. 8

First slide

St. Martin de Porres Senior Center in Alexandria will reopen to a limited number of seniors Nov. 8.

The center will host several activities and lunch for 20 seniors, who made reservations, with COVID-19 protocols in place including health screenings, social distancing, masks and hand sanitization.

The center will evaluate the safety and comfort of the seniors with tentative plans to expand capacity. Pre-pandemic, the center typically served 55-60 clients a day.

The center closed March 18, 2020, in response to the pandemic, but continued to provide support to seniors through meal kits and phone calls.
