Following guidance from state and local health officials, the City of Apache Junction is following recommendations to curtail large gatherings and encourage social distancing by suspending some larger parks and recreation and library programs.
Pinal County has seen five cases of COVID-19, a new strain of coronavirus, all in one household.
As of March 17, the Apache Junction Parks and Recreation Department will temporarily halt senior programs, including congregate meals, which are held at the Apache Junction Multi-Generational Center, 1035 N. Idaho Road, according to a release.
The city will continue to supply meals to seniors on a “drive-through” basis and by delivery. The senior transportation program will be suspended; however, the federally funded transportation reimbursement program to help seniors get to critical appointments and shopping will still be in place. Seniors are encouraged to call or talk with center staff about their options.
