BALTIMORE — Baltimore City's Health Department is allowing senior centers to reopen May 17 at 50 percent capacity.
Governor Larry Hogan had previously authorized senior centers throughout the state to reopen effective April 30.
COVID-19 screenings such as temperature checks will be conducted at the door prior to anyone entering. Masks will have to be worn at all times indoors.
Although no proof of a COVID-19 vaccination will be required, members, volunteers, and staff are encouraged to get vaccinated.
Some in-person services will resume on a limited basis depending on the center, while online services and classes will continue.
