Information about COVID-19

In compliance with COVID-19 guidelines, Collier Senior Center became the only senior center in the county (and one of a few in Florida) to provide in-person programs as early as June 29, 2020.

Today, we’re still open Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm, with free offerings like a daily coffee bar, breakfast and hot lunch, plus other in-person activities that empower, enrich and ensure you’re living your best life!

Our Board and Staff continue to monitor the pandemic and do everything possible to safeguard your wellbeing. If necessary, our programs will shift to Zoom, telephone calls and home delivery/visits. Stay up-to-date by visiting this site regularly or following us on Facebook (LINK).

Remember, we’re in this together!
