Meals on Wheels officials said they're alerting volunteers who might've delivered to residents the Lampe Hi-rise of the possibility of exposure.

Quincy Meals on Wheels organizer Kimberly Thompson said volunteers were already delivering meals by social distancing, but she said an important part of their work is wellness checking, which is why they would at least make sure residents are okay.

She said right now their volunteers aren't going into Lampe to avoid spreading the virus to other parts of their routes.

"Considering the Lampe situation currently the salvation army is delivering all the meals over there to everyone in the building, they're taking care of that while we step back from the client we have there, that makes everything safe for everyone," said Thompson.

She said long term they want to be able to provide wellness checks and conversation to their clients once again, but until they get the go-ahead, they'll have to follow guidelines from state and federal agencies.
