Although it was anticipated that there would be an announcement Monday about the reopening date for child care services, the Governor stated that officials are still working on health and safety protocols. “Reopening child care centers is simply too important without all the best information and protocols in place,” DeWine said. “It’s very important that we get this right. We don’t want to announce a date until we have the protocols in place. We’re focusing on the safety of the kids, their families and the employees.”
Since the Senior Center had to close two months ago in compliance with the Governor’s Stay at Home order, the Office on Aging staff has been answering calls and emails, checking in by phone to Senior Center members and helping in whatever ways they could. Our Meals on Wheels program continues to operate through the help of dedicated volunteers. Staff made food delivery possible in a pilot program with Heights Emergency Food Center and a new contract is in the works with our Area Agency on Aging to allow us to deliver shelf-stable food to those in need. Seniors are encouraged to talk with one of our social workers to help ease loneliness and reduce the stress that can occur in these uncertain times. Along with being a resource for homemade face masks for any senior requesting one, staff has been delivering books, puzzles, craft projects, and more. They continue to work on programming during this time of social distance and look forward to seeing everyone at the Senior Center in the near future. Please call the Senior Center at 216-691-7377 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s anything you, or a senior you know, needs.
May is the month that our lawns spring back to life. I’d just like to remind our residents of the requirement to keep your grass 6 inches or shorter per our City’s Code. We’ve heard some complaints already, and while COVID-19 has impacted our staffing levels, we want you to know that we are still responding albeit slightly delayed. Residents should feel free to call 216-291-5900 or use the Access Cleveland Heights App to report issues. You will receive a response, but we do ask that you continue to be patient with us as we work with a reduced staff.
