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.
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…

All participants will remain in their cars and need to wear masks when anyone approaches. Tune into 89.3FM to hear announcements and numbers being called.
