Castleton Community Center opens outdoors

CASTLETON—The Castleton Community Center opened for outdoor classes taking into account the Governor’s orders and the state Dept. of Health’s guidance for health, safety and infection prevention.

All classes and group meetings take place in the van shelter where the floor has been marked at 6 foot distances. Masks are required, temperatures are taken, hand sanitizer is used and the instructor keeps a record of who attends for contact tracing.

The classes that are currently being held outdoors are yoga, tai chi, bone builders, better balance, guitar lessons, ukulele and knitters network. There are two classes a day at 9 a.m. and at 10:30 a.m., leaving a half hour break to sanitize and then check in the next group. They are also continuing virtual classes on PEG TV channel 1075 at 9:30 each morning for those who are not ready to meet in person.

The elderly and disabled transportation program is available for doctor’s appointments and food shopping. Masks must be worn, seats are blocked to adhere to the 6 foot distancing and sanitizing is done before and after each ride. Passengers are called within 24 hours of their ride to ask the Dept. of Health screening questions, verify the time of pick up, and remind them to wear a mask.

For details about the programs and services available at the community center call 802-468-3093 or check castletoncsi.org.
