Golden Hour Senior Center Taking Extra Precautions Amid Virus Outbreak

GREEN RIVER– Golden Hour Senior Center is closely following the outbreak of the Coronavirus (i.e. COVID-19) and is in communication with the Wyoming Department of Health, Sweetwater County Emergency Management Team, and Sweetwater County Public Health.

GHSC is also checking updates and information generated from the Center of Disease Control on a regular basis. They recognize that there is a higher risk of older people and people with chronic health conditions becoming seriously ill from COVID-19.

The GHSC team is taking precautions to reduce the risk of transmission. Currently this includes providing information and education on COVID-19 to their employees, volunteers and patrons and planning in case the situation becomes more serious.

Changes in service delivery, service suspension and canceling or rescheduling group activities may occur.

GHSC is asking people to stay home and contact their medical provider if they have traveled internationally within the last 14 days, traveled to an area in the United States infected with COVID-19, show signs of a respiratory infection including fever over 100 degrees, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 or is under investigation for COVID-19.

We will be posting updates on the GHSC website, social media and with local media outlets. GHSC’s goal is to take reasonable and prudent steps to limit exposure to COVID-19 and to work in collaboration with other community organizations. The center is hoping that they will not have to implement measures that will decrease services but want people to be prepared in case they do.

If people have questions, contact GHSC at 307-872-3223.
