TULSA, Okla. — As concerns over the Coronavirus continue, schools, businesses, and organizations are doing all they can to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Meals on Wheels Chief Operating Officer Marc Bloomingdale said they're taking the same precautions, no matter the illness.

Whether it’s the flu, cold or even COVID-19, workers are wearing gloves, constantly washing their hands, covering their nose and mouths when they sneeze or cough.

“We work with a population that is generally compromised health wise and so we are always making sure that we’re taking precautions to not spread any communicable diseases,” said Bloomingdale.

He said they also have enough stock on hand for frozen and shelf stable meals if any of their clients were to be quarantined.

Meals on wheels is also staying in touch with their other partners and making sure all of the other organizations are able to meet their needs as well.
