Reno, Nev. March 30, 2020. Due to COVID-19 concerns in our community, Washoe County, Cities of Reno and Sparks, are canceling Older Americans Month 2020. In an effort to comply with Governor Sisolak’s request for social distancing, all OAM activities during the month of May will not take place. However, home delivered and takeout meals for seniors will not be impacted.
We apologize for any inconvenience, but the health of Washoe County’s elderly is priority during this trying time.
Seniors that must go out for groceries, gas, medications, or any other reason necessary should do the following:
- Remain at least 6 feet from another person in public.
- Stay away from anyone who is sick or exhibiting signs of illness.
- Cough or sneeze in sleeve.
For more information about COVID-19, please head to the Regional Information Center’s website.
We thank you in advance for understanding.
Washoe County Senior Services Division Director Steve McBride.
