COVID-19

General Info

Senior & Disability Services Modified Office Hours:

  • Beginning Thursday, March 19th, our Eugene and Florence Senior & Disability Services offices will be open to the public from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., and our Oakridge and Cottage Grove offices will remain closed. These modified hours and closures will last until further notice. Our staff will continue serving our consumers via phone, email and fax. Please feel free to also utilize our drop boxes (Eugene and Florence offices). We appreciate your cooperation as we work together to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Senior Meals:

  • Senior and Disability Services, a division of the Lane Council of Governments, is continuing to operate Café 60 dining locations and Meals on Wheels routes across Lane County in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Operations have been amended to ensure precautions that prioritize the safety of meal recipients, staff, and volunteers are at the front lines of these efforts.
  • All Meals on Wheels routes are continuing to operate with volunteers. Our volunteers are not having direct contact with meal recipients to minimize health risks for all parties. These health risks are being alleviated by a “knock and drop” approach that allows us to continue to check on our consumers while maintaining appropriate “social distancing” measures. Our Café 60 dining locations are providing meals to go only and maintaining a regular lunch operation schedule in most locations.
  • Anyone with questions about starting Meals on Wheels or picking up meals to go at a Café 60 dining location can call the Aging and Disability Resource Connection at 541-682-3353 during business hours. Any resident 60 years or older may pick up food to go at a Café 60 location, regardless of income.
