During times like these, the health and safety of Boston’s seniors are at the forefront of the minds of many.
Operation PEACE, which runs the Peterborough Senior Center in the Fenway, has decided to close all programming for two weeks, according to Program Director Mallory Rohrig. Aside from senior programming, Operation PEACE also offers programs for youth and adults. After the two weeks, which will be March 27, the team will re-evaluate the situation.
“At Operation PEACE, our first concern is keeping seniors safe and doing our part to limit exposure to and the spread of the coronavirus,” Rohrig said. “During these two weeks, our plan is to stay in contact with our seniors as much as possible—including making regular wellness-check phone calls.”
Operation PEACE is also teaming up with the Fenway Community Center to see how they can help in other ways as well.
“Please remember to practice social distancing, good hand-washing, and frequent hand-washing,” Rohrig reminded email subscribers on March 16. “We hope everyone stays safe and well!”
