The ADRC-CW response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Central Wisconsin (ADRC-CW) is taking precautionary steps to protect the vulnerable population it serves in Langlade, Lincoln, Marathon, and Wood counties amidst the rapidly changing situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified older adults to be at a higher risk for serious illness with COVID-19. In response to the potential higher risk of serious illness among our customers, the ADRC-CW is suspending classes, home visits, and in-office visits beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020 through Friday, April 3, 2020. The ADRC-CW is also closing the congregate senior dining sites throughout the region. A limited number of dining sites will remain open to customers living in senior apartments (senior dining will be closed to persons living outside of the residential building).
Selected community dining sites will be open for customers to pick up packaged meals. Refer to the Altered Nutrition Services Plan – COVID-19 Response. Meals on Wheels will continue in all four counties. ADRC-CW staff are available for information and assistance by phone. Homebound adults 60 years and older, should call 888-486-9545 to determine meal eligibility and the options may best meet their needs. The ADRC-CW will follow the guidance from our public health officers, emergency management departments, state advisory organizations, and recommendations from the CDC when determining further actions.
