All Warren/Forest Senior Centers are now open with limitations to help keep our seniors safe.

However, due to the ongoing health and safety concerns presented by COVID-19, we have determined that it is necessary to implement a temporary use policy and waiver of liability. The purpose of the policy and waiver is to enable our members to utilize the centers while also protecting the health and safety of our members and staff. Accordingly, each member that desires to access the centers shall be subject to this use policy and shall be required to execute a waiver of liability prior to admission to the centers. Failure or inability to comply shall result in immediate removal from the center.

HOURS OF OPERATION

To allow for sufficient time to clean the center prior to use each day, the centers shall operate with the following reduced hours:

Allegheny Community Center: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Endeavor: 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Each center shall limit the number of individuals (including members, staff, providers, and volunteers) in each center at any given time in order to ensure safe distancing. Each center varies in square footage and physical layout. Accordingly, each center will be limited to a maximum of 30% of the ordinary maximum capacity.
