UPDATE on COVID-19 and MEALS ON WHEELS

March 17th, 2020 by Lori Gerhart

MEALS ON WHEELS CONTINUES TO DELIVER MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
In an effort to continue to limit physical contact, many of our clients have moved to coolers for delivery of their daily meal. We now ask all meals on wheels clients to consider using coolers outside their door to receive the meals. You need to provide 2 coolers or insulated bags- one for hot and one for cold. Each cooler must contain a cold ice pack, frozen water bottle or baggie of ice. If coolers are not an option, consider designating a bench or table where the volunteer can place the meal without making physical contact and without entering too far into the home. A friendly knock on the door or door bell ring will let you now the meal has been delivered.
Berks Encore encourages all neighbors to continue to be diligent in hand washing, social distancing and helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Check out the CDC website for tips and information.
