Raleigh County Commission on Aging delays reopening due to COVID-19

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – The Raleigh County Commission on Aging is delaying the reopening of their Senior Center due to COVID-19.

The Commission on Aging says this will allow them to do necessary cleaning and preparation for social distancing measures.  During this time, they will also be monitoring the status of COVID-19 cases in the area to decide when it is safe to reopen.

They went on to say that “until we feel confident that our seniors can return to our center safely, we will continue to provide home-delivered meals, grab& go meals at our Kanawha Street site, and wellness checks by phone for our seniors as we have been doing for the last few weeks.”
