Resources for Ages 60 & Older

The City’s goal is to manage precautions ahead of any confirmed cases and encourage the community to take personal responsibility and reduce the impact to populations who are at a higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness.

The CDC has identified older populations are at a higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness. See the Mayor’s letter to residents ages 60 and better.
