Beginning Wednesday, May 5, 2021, the Cedar Hill Senior Center will reopen with limited in person programming. Queen Beaders, Loom Knitting and Hand quilting will be open and limited to 15 users each. Registration and membership will be required to participate.  You can register in person at the Alan E. Sims Recreation Center on May 3 and 4 from 8am-4pm. All other areas of the senior center, including the, game room, craft room, fitness equipment and kitchen will remain closed. High-touch surfaces will be disinfected throughout the day.

Members are required to wear a face mask in the building at all times and should stay 6 feet from others and wipe down all equipment before and after use. Members should bring their own water bottles, as water fountains and the kitchen will not be available. 

To protect the health of City employees and the Cedar Hill community, visitors to City facilities will be asked to wear a face covering or mask and self-screen for symptoms of possible COVID-19 before entering City buildings. Residents are encouraged to continue to access services online at cedarhilltx.com and over the phone at (972) 291-5100 ext. 1290.

Residents can help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community by avoiding crowds and keeping 6 feet from others, washing hands often, wearing face coverings in public, and staying home when sick. Individuals age 65 and older and those with medical issues, such as diabetes, heart or lung disease, cancer, or weakened immune system are at a higher risk of getting very sick or dying of COVID-19. State and local health officials continue to recommend that at-risk individuals and older adults stay home as much as possible and avoid face-to-face contact with others.
