The Quincy Senior Center is set to reopen for dine-in meals and some activities starting April 1.
Indoor dining for lunches and dinners will be available at 25% capacity. Tables are spread out in both the dining room and the activity room, and only four seats are set at each table, said Quincy Senior Center Director Stacia Soukup. Members coming into the building will be required to wear a facial covering unless they are eating. Prior to the pandemic, dinners were served in family style. Now dinners will be served on individual plates.
Takeout meals will still be available for pickup, and regardless of takeout or dine-in, members need to place dinner orders by 3 p.m. the day before. Dinners are served on Tuesday and Thursday, and lunches on Monday and Wednesday.
Dine-in meals are not the only thing returning to the senior center. Coffee social hour is set to start April 5, and later in the month, movie night will return on April 28. There is room for up to 20 members to come to these events, although Soukup said usually just a small group shows up for coffee.
The center has been closed for regular activities since last March, but did reopen in April of 2020 for takeout lunches and dinners only, Soukup said.
“They’re super excited to come back,” she added.
