Middletown Senior Center has confirmed one of its employees has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee was sent home immediately upon arrival at work on July 27th, as the employee displayed symptoms of being ill. The employee has been home under self-quarantine since then. The employee took a COVID test on July 30th and received the positive test result on the evening of August 3rd.
Out of an abundance of caution, Middletown Senior Center immediately closed, began contact tracing and every Senior Center employee has been directed to take a COVID test. During the temporary closure we will be conducting rigorous deep cleaning and sanitizing of the entire facility. The drive-thru food pickup has been temporarily suspended and frozen meals are being delivered to the homebound seniors during this time.
Middletown Senior Center is committed to maintaining a safe environment for its clients and staff. Executive Director, Lori Tourville stated, “We understand the importance of being transparent with our clients, staff members and community and will communicate any information we have regarding the situation.”
Middletown Senior Center immediately contacted Lake County Department of Public Health and Dr. Gary Pace, Lake County Public Health Officer, on July 27th to seek guidance and assess the situation. After reviewing the details of the case with Dr. Pace, it was concluded that there was no concern of transmission to any clients.
Middletown Senior Center is continuing to work closely with Dr. Pace and the Lake County Department of Public Health and will follow their recommendations and guidance.
The safety of our staff and clients continues to be of utmost importance. We continue to take temperature checks, require masks and/or face shields and sanitize the facility on a regular basis. Middletown Senior Center is proud of their staff for adhering to these health and safety practices, while continuing to provide excellent service to their clients.

Dear Middletown Senior Center Clients,
The safety of our seniors has always been our first priority. With the increased health risks associated with the COVID-19 virus, we have implemented new procedures. Listed below are steps we are taking to ensure the safety and protection of our seniors, reduce health risks and maintain the social distancing recommendations of public health officials. We are here to help and together, we will get through this challenging time as a community.
Safety procedures implemented:
Drive Thru Meal Pick-Up
Meals are prepared by the same individuals that are delivering them to seniors who are picking up. This significantly reduces the number of individuals handling the meals, reducing potential exposure and health risks.
Meals are prepared daily (Monday – Friday) to provide fresh and healthy options for our seniors. We look forward to seeing our seniors as they pick up their meals to check in with them and ensure we are meeting their needs.
Drivers are equipped with hand sanitizer, masks, and gloves in each vehicle. Drivers will leave meals on the doorstep, ring the doorbell and maintain a minimum of the six-foot recommended distance from our seniors.
Drivers will wait for meals to be picked up off of the doorstep, providing them the opportunity for visual welfare checks.
Meals are prepared in our kitchen daily (Monday –Friday) and are available to be picked up at the Middletown Senior Center (21256 Washington St., Middletown, CA) or delivered to your home. Please call (707) 987-3113 before 10 AM for pick-up at 12 PM.
Meals delivered are packaged hot and placed in a hot box with heat stones, cold portions of meals are placed in coolers with cold packs. Meals are promptly packaged and sent out at 11:00 AM. Our drivers check the temperature of cold and hot food at the start of delivery and when the last meal is delivered.
If you have special needs or require additional accommodations, please contact us at (707) 987-3113. We are here to help!
