TOWSON, Md. — Nine of Baltimore County’s largest senior centers are now open.

Senior centers have been closed since March 17 last year, when Governor Larry Hogan issued a state order to combat COVID-19.

Before going to a senior center, members are required to attend an orientation session to learn about new COVID-19 safety protocols and complete annual center registration forms.

To register and schedule an orientation, call 410-887-2040 or click here.

Here is a list of senior centers now open to registered members for drop-in and recreational programs, including basketball, pickleball, cards, pool, socializing, woodshop, bingo, shuffleboard, and table tennis.

Masks are encouraged but not required.

The County plans to resume in-person instructional classes and educational seminars starting June 7.

Eleven other senior centers will reopen at a later date.

Until the Eating Together program resumes, weekly bulk food programs will continue being provided to seniors on Wednesdays, with expansion to 9 sites: Ateaze, Bykota, Catonsville, Cockeysville, Essex, Liberty, Parkville, Reisterstown and Seven Oaks senior centers.
