Nutrition & Services is concerned about what a significant outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Jefferson and Hardin counties could mean for the vulnerable seniors we serve. We are closely monitoring information and resources being shared by the experts in disease control and are putting prevention and response plans into place. We follow health officials’ recommended steps to protect against coronavirus similarly to how we prevent the spread of other illnesses. Staff and volunteers are trained appropriately.
We know the critical importance of preparation in times like this and understand the delicate balance between panic and preparedness. While we do not anticipate a disruption in service at this time, we have shelf stable meals packaged and ready to deliver to clients as needed.
Our senior clients and the volunteers that serve them remain our utmost concern. It is our hope that healthcare professionals will find a way to end this epidemic, but in the meantime, we hope everyone will follow these precautions to stop the spread of this or any illnesses.
