Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Info regarding how this event is being affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.:

To keep our community safe, we are following the CDC recommendations about wearing a mask in indoor public settings. These recommendations are based on Covid-19 Community Levels and are responsive to current data about hospitalization and case rates. Covid-19 Community levels are updated weekly and can be found here: Covid-19 by County | CDC When the Covid-19 Community Level is low or medium, our space will be mask optional. When the Covid-19 Community Level is high, our space will be mask required. We are currently at a high community risk level, so GrubStreet’s in-person classes and events will require masks until the Covid community level drops back into the medium or low levels. We are no longer requiring proof of vaccination due to the high rates of vaccination within the state.
