This spring is beautiful, but it is not peaceful due to the outbreak of COVID-19, which is threatening our safety and our lives.
With the spreading of the coronavirus pandemic since the beginning of 2020, the CDC confirmed the first positive case of COVID-19 in the U.S. at the end of January, adding America to the list of infected countries. From there, the spread of COVID-19 within the U.S. and the number of positive cases began climbing dramatically in less than one month. On March 13, 2020, President Trump declared a state of national emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic, and since then, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has issued multiple actions to slow the spreading of COVID-19, including the closing of all schools, the shut down all non-essential business, and strict restrictions have been set on all senior centers, amongst other things.

Thus, CCACC made a decisive decision to close the Adult Day Healthcare Center (ADHC) after an emergency board meeting. Instead of providing services on-site, CCACC will deliver certain services right to their homes by sending employees to deliver food and medicine and providing transportation for seniors in need of clinical checkups. Each senior is distributed an emergency card from CCACC, so they can contact CCACC when they need help. CCACC is covering all costs.
Seniors feel appreciated when employees from CCACC ADHC deliver food to their homes.
What a heartwarming spring it is! CCACC has taken on the responsibility to fulfill its mission in these times. Their love is like the flowers that bloom in spring, driving away fear and anxiety. Their love is like the sunlight on a warm spring day, warming the heart of every senior citizen.
