As the Omicron variant continues to surge throughout Riverside County, our senior population remains especially vulnerable.

Stop by the Senior Center, located at 25075 Fir Avenue, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday to pick up your N95 pack.

Free surgical masks and hand sanitizer bottles will still be available for all Moreno Valley residents at all three Moreno Valley City Library branches and the Business and Employment Resource Center (BERC) as part of the ongoing We've Got You Covered program.
