For the first time in five months, the Quesnel Seniors’ Centre will be open.
The centre is set to begin programming on Tuesday, Sept. 8, after a deep clean over the weekend.
Programming at the centre will look different, according to the president of the Quesnel and District Seniors’ Society, Doug Service.
That starts with the number of programs going on in a week.
“Out of all our activities, we’ve got four that are going to start up,” Service said. “When the weather gets a little colder, pickleball will come in.”
Hi all, just an update on our opening. The Executive passed a motion to open the Seniors’ Centre in September. We will…
The centre closed March 12 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and hasn’t opened since.
“Every activity has to come up with their own little plan for COVID-19,” Service said.
All surfaces at the centre will be cleaned at least once daily, with social distancing and occupancy limits strictly enforced.
“We feel it’s really important for [our members’] social health and their mental health to get back and start doing things,” Service said.
He added the society has already received calls from groups wanting to rent the hall as well.
“Let’s give it a shot and see what the members want, what they like, and what they want to do,” Service said.
