MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The North Frayser Community Center will open as a warming center Saturday.

The City of Memphis previously planned to use the Marion Hale Community Center as a warming center but shifted locations late Friday after unforeseen mechanical issues.

The warming center at the North Frayser Community Center opens at 7 p.m. Saturday and remains open through 7 a.m. Monday. The community center is at 2555 St. Elmo Ave.

The center is being put in place for residents who need to escape low temperatures after normal business hours for city government buildings. The center has limited resources and is not intended to replace services provided by a shelter.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, anyone that would like to enter the warming center will be required to take a COVID-19 test prior to entering as well as follow social distancing guidelines. Masking is strongly encouraged for anyone that enters the center.

Those seeking overnight accommodations are encouraged to seek assistance from the Memphis Un ion Mission - (901) 829-8403 - or The Salvation Army - (901) 529-4545.
