Oliver’s Senior Centre is closing its doors effective March 16.
They will be closed until further notice, the centre is latest group to curtail its activities as a measure against the spread of COVID-19.
“It’s because of the virus, and we are a senior centre,” said Helga Aston, the centre’s president. “We have a lot of members over the age of 65, so it is precautionary. We don’t want the situation to get worse.”
The Oliver Senior Centre’s closure follows in the wake of the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-In Centre closing their doors. That closure played a part in the decision in Oliver.
Residents will be able to keep an eye out for any developments and announcements for the centre reopening on the website’s calendar, as well as on the message on the centre’s answering machine.
“On our events calendar, as of tomorrow, we are closed,” said Aston. “We’ll monitor the situation. We will post something if the situation changes.”
