Willamalane Response To The Coronavirus Outbreak

Willamalane has initiated a response to the coronavirus outbreak. In line with a recommendation from Governor Brown regarding the safety of public gatherings and social distancing suggestions, Willamalane is taking the following action:
 
  • Starting at 1:30 p.m. today, we’re going to close the Willamalane Adult Activity Center (215 W. C St., Springfield OR) and suspend programs in that facility. This is in effect until further notice. 
  • We are canceling our MEGGA Hunt event that was slated for Saturday, April 11. This also means that we’re going to cancel our volunteer-run egg stuffing party on Friday, March 20. Anyone who has already registered for the event will be issued a full refund.
  • All public updates from Willamalane will be posted at Willamalane.org/alerts.
 
Services provided at the Adult Activity Center: Staff will be available via phone for regular patrons to ask questions or for updates. Our biggest priority right now is maintaining the Senior Meals Program. We’re working with our partners Senior and Disabled Services to coordinate meal options for seniors.
 
Why we’re making this decision: Everyone at Willamalane is committed to the safety of our patrons, employees, volunteers, and partners. Lane County Public Health identified that people 60 and over and those with pre-existing cardio and respiratory conditions, as well as those who are immunocompromised are urged to avoid large gatherings. Many of our regular patrons at the Willamalane Adult Activity Center meet these conditions. 
 
Employee impact: Employees who work from the Willamalane Adult Activity Center will have the opportunity to continue regular duties from this facility, as long as they are healthy and maintaining safe distances from each other. 
 
Continued service to the community: In the days and weeks to follow, Willamalane will monitor the situation and work to serve the community using the resources available. 
 
Willamalane is committed to doing everything keeping our community as healthy as possible. Please email whitney.hoshaw@willamalane.org with questions or for additional information.
