COVID-19 In-Person Class Cancellations + Equipment Checkout





Over the last few days, there have been new guidelines issued by the City of New York and health authorities regarding the situation surrounding Coronavirus/Covid-19. In accordance with these, and as we work together to overcome this public health crisis, our doors will be closed through the end of May. This means that all in-person classes through May 31 are canceled. Class registrants were contacted with refund information.

From Monday, March 16 - Sunday, May 31, all equipment and studio checkouts and reservations at BRIC House and New Lots Library are canceled. Reservations for June are subject to change or cancellation, pending the status of the COVID-19 public health crisis. If you had a field equipment pick-up reservation for Sunday, March 15, you are advised to hold the equipment until you are notified with a date for return. Questions?
