Evans Center staff are working with partners to safely return to regular programs including the LifeCare Alliance daily lunches and Grove City Division of Police Seniors and Law Enforcement (S.A.L.T.) meetings.

A temperature check is required upon entry, and visitors are asked to employ social distancing when possible.
