Although April has presented itself with tulips and cherry blossoms, we are also challenged with the current Covid-19 pandemic. This is a very trying time for all of us, but I want to assure you that my team and I are doing everything in our power to ease your struggle.
We have been making daily well-check calls and when able to, safely delivering meals to those who have no other way of obtaining food. I am in constant communication with the Mayor and the hospital regarding safety measures for going out into the public. Please try to stay home and if you absolutely must go out, it is essential that you wear a mask, gloves and some eye covering. Keep a distance of at least 6 feet from others and wash your hands thoroughly once you are back home and after handling mail. Wipe down your doorknobs and countertops frequently. We can't be too safe.
We are now putting together a live entertainment series on our Facebook page:
Wednesday, April 15, 2020 ~ Norm Pors ~ 12:15 - 1:45 (Passover)
Saturday, April 18, 2020 ~ Mala Waldron ~ 2:15 - 3:45
Saturday, April 25, 2020 ~ Brother Dave ~ 2:15 - 3:45
Tuesday, May 5, 2020 ~ Gissel Garcia ~ 2:15 - 3:45 (Cinco de Mayo)
Sunday, May 10, 2020 ~ Mike Duca ~ 2:15 - 3:45 (Mother's Day)
Be sure to join us for these wonderful virtual concerts. Music is extremely important and can help us get through this time while we are apart.
We are also collecting members' emails so that our Program Coordinator, Eric Shuman can send out packets of puzzles, jokes, and stories to keep you entertained and engaged. Social isolation is a serious and difficult thing to combat, so I wholeheartedly encourage you to participate as much and as often as you are able. If you are connected to social media, please visit our Facebook page "The Glen Cove Senior Center" to enjoy updated information regarding Covid-19, music entertainment, videos of staff members, interesting articles and much more!
Although we are not physically there for you, my staff and I are available via phone and email. If you have any questions, or just need to talk, please feel free to call the Senior Center at 516-759-9610 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your call will be answered and directed to the correct person.
My staff and I look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces back at the Glen Cove Senior Center as soon as it is safely possible. Each day that goes by, gets us one day closer to being back together, so please listen to the government's advice and stay home and be safe.
We will get through this together!

Glen Cove Senior Center to Temporarily
The City of Glen Cove is continuing to closely monitor COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, and continues to correspond with various local and state agencies to coordinate a response. Earlier today, March 12, 2020, the City of Glen Cove received a message from the County of Nassau, Department of Human Services, recommending the immediate cessation of all senior social activities and programs. Therefore, consistent with the County's recommendation, all services and programming offered at the Glen Cove Senior Center will be suspended indefinitely, effective immediately, we are closed until further notice. Until the suspension is lifted, members of the Senior Center will not be permitted to access the Senior Center facility. However, Senior Center employees will remain on staff until further notice to continue daily administrative work and to assist with the delivery of meals to those members that rely on them.
The City of Glen Cove will continue to closely monitor and proactively address the coronavirus situation while keeping our residents informed. We will also continue to communicate with the Department of Human Services and will act consistent with their recommendations.
