Programming at the Queen Elizabeth II Seniors and Community Centre will be temporarily suspended from Monday, March 30, but the centre will remain open.

A spokeswoman for the City of Greater Geraldton, which manages the facility, said the QEII Seniors Advisory Committee met today and decided to stop programs at the centre from next Friday, March 27, until further notice.

Programs include Gentle Gym and other exercise programs, art and music classes, support groups and lessons.

The committee says the centre will stay open so senior citizens can drop in for a cup of tea, read a book or have a chat.

Necessary chairs and tables in the lower hall will be set up to accommodate the physical distances recommended by health authorities.
