COVID-19 Emergency Plan

Covid-19 Emergency Plan
Effective April 13th, 2020

As a matter of public safety to assist in curbing the spread of the Covid-19 Virus, effective Thursday, March 19th, Somervell County Senior Center will suspend congregate meals, group activities and classes until further notice. Our MEALS ON WHEELS PROGRAM WILL NOT be discontinued; however, the Center will be closed to the public.

For those who require congregate (in house) meals, while the dining room is closed, SCCOA will continue to offer meals for curbside pickup as a CARRY OUT MEALS ONLY, based on availability. Currently funding is limited for Curb Side Meals, therefore we would appreciate a donation of $3.75 per meal. For citizens under 60 curbside pick-up meals are available at a cost of $5.50. Please call for details.
If you need a meal, please call 254-897-2139 before 9:30. Meals will be waiting in the front of the building at 12 Noon Monday thru Friday. Please remain in your vehicle and we will give you your meal. Please bring exact change if possible.

Glen Rose is a community and now is the time we all need to work together. If you can afford an additional donation to help continue funding our necessary services, it will be greatly appreciated.
If you need additional help, please do not hesitate to call. We will do what we can within the strict guidelines set forth in this state of emergency. If we are unable to assist you, we will do our best to direct you to the service provider you need.

JULY 4TH UPDATE:
Governor Abbott announced amendments to his Executive Order (GA-26) on June 26, 2020 that affects outdoor gatherings and events. This change has forced the Somervell County Water District to change its plans regarding its annual 4th of July celebration at the Wheeler Branch Reservoir.
• Fireworks will still be shot from the reservoir on July 4, 2020 at 9:30pm
• Firework music will still be synced on local radio station K-HITS 95.5
• The Wheeler Branch Reservoir Park will be CLOSED all day on the 4th of July and all on-site activities will be cancelled other than fireworks.
Somervell County Water District is extremely disappointed to have to cancel on-site activities but feels that it is the prudent course of action given the current Covid-19 virus situation. We are hopeful that all Somervell County residents are able to find a location within the County where they can still view and enjoy the firework show from the safe confines of their vehicle or home. We look forward to resuming normal firework show activities next year after this has all passed.

The CDC recommends people wear cloth face coverings in public, except for young children. But it is false to say wearing a mask is harmful to adults.
