Covid Updates

COVID-19 Updates

Dear SNAP Members

We have always prioritized the safety of our members, and in these uncertain times, this is no different. That’s why we are practicing and enforcing best practices for social distancing and self-isolation in the midst of COVID-19.

As you know, safety recommendations — including those for our members and staff — can and will likely change in accordance to the CDC and New York state and city recommendations. You can count on us to keep up-to-date with the latest regulations by the state and federal government.

We encourage you to stay safe. This includes practicing safe social distancing. We are thinking about our members and look forward to serving you again in the future when we senior centers re-open.

Until then, connect with us virtually online via our website, ZOOM Classes and social media channels. This is where you’ll find any updates on how we are managing the safety of you and our staff. We’ll also share tips on how to continue to stay healthy and well.

What to Expect from Us

Unfortunately, there is no telling when things will be “back to normal” in any sense. Rest assured that we’re doing our best to keep you informed and taking every precaution needed. This means support will be somewhat selective and limited during this time.

We are carefully monitoring the situation (just like you) and, at this moment, cannot provide an estimated time of reopening. The most important thing is to make sure the full opening in the future happens in a safe environment. We’re all in this together, learning together, and adapting together.

How to Contact Us

If you have specific questions not addressed here or on our website, reach out to us. We’re still available to answer your questions and respond to any concerns, though do keep in mind, the response time might be a little longer than what you’re used to.
