COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Effective on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, masks are required for EVERYONE at both The Gathering Place Senior Center and the Benzie Senior Resources Administrative Building, regardless of vaccination status. This decision is due to a continued rise in COVID-19 cases in Benzie County, resulting in a high positivity rate and high rate of community transmission.

The safety our seniors, staff and volunteers are our top priority and wearing masks is just one way to protect one another. Another is to practice social distancing and at The Gathering Place Senior Center only 4 people will be seated at the round tables and 6 at the rectangular tables.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated in following our new protocols.

If you are sick, please do not come to either location. Get tested. You can still get COVID if you are vaccinated, but the illness it presents is less severe. We encourage you to get vaccinated if you have not already.
