Sebastian County Senior Center Executive Director Deanna Rice announced on Thursday afternoon, June 11, that the Mansfield Senior Center would be closing for 15 calendar days. The precautionary measure comes as city employees and community members test positive for COVID-19.
Rice stated that there have been no confirmed cases with the senior center staff, however, they are being tested out of an abundance of caution. “We take the health and well-being of our seniors seriously, and we are temporarily closing to keep everyone safe,” Rice stated.
Frozen meals are being prepared by other senior centers to be distributed to those in the area who are home bound. No curbside meals will be offered during the 15 day closure.
