From the Executive Director

Update on COVID-19 effects on our services.

 

June 1, 2021

We are so joyful that our community is moving towards a hopefully happier time, as the result of the widespread availability of COVID-19 vaccines. Over the past year, we have all experienced differing degrees of mental fatigue, stress and worry – in addition to the all-too-real physical threat of the disease – and the relief that we are now experiencing is so welcome!

Since October, we have been delivering our usual 5 meals/week (we’ve never stopped, all through the year of pandemic) on 3 days: Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. On each of those days, our clients receive a hot, nutritious meal to enjoy immediately; on Mondays and Thursdays, they also receive an extra meal for the next day.

This schedule will continue for now.  Governor Newsom has declared that there will be no further restrictions in California as of June 15.  However, it is up to each of the state’s 58 counties to manage their own re-opening plan.  We await Yolo County’s announcements of what next steps will be, in order to be well-informed regarding our own plans.  Be assured that we will make the best and safest decisions for our clients, volunteers and staff, and that we will share them with you just as soon as we can.

We will continue to adapt to this ever-changing situation as needed and continue to provide the vital services that help our community.  Thank you all for your ongoing support that means so much to all of us in the Meals on Wheels family and of course, to our seniors.
