Activities & Presentations
When the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, a new reality took hold. The City of Dublin puts the health and safety of its community above all else and continues to work with local and state officials to monitor this ever changing situation. Older adults, 65 years and older, and persons with pre-existing medical conditions or compromised immune systems are at a higher risk for COVID-19. This includes people who have heart disease, lung disease, cancer, high blood pressure or diabetes.
In an effort to provide safe programming for DCSC members, we are developing creative ways to engage our participants while at home or while social distancing. Social distancing doesn’t have to mean social isolation. Stay connected…
A first-run movie is shown each month in the Abbey Theater with a limit of 30 patrons for social distancing. Your DCSC Member Connection will highlight which movie is to be shown and include pertinent movie details. DCSC members must be registered to attend each movie. Closed captioning is available.
Live at the 55 Lounge
Starting late January 2021, DCSC members can participate in this new virtual program.
