Illinois older adults are among the highest risk population group for becoming seriously ill from COVID-19. Locations where seniors gather such as congregate meal sites and senior centers may increase the risk of transmitting COVID-19 and community spreading of the virus. On Monday, March 9, 2020, Governor JB Pritzker declared a state of emergency based on new guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and evidence emerging across other countries and throughout the United States.
Sites will remain closed until further notice.
FSA is working to ensure that we continue to support our seniors and will be in constant contact with seniors and other senior service organizations throughout to ensure we can continue to provide necessary services and support to the senior community.
