The safety and well being of our community is our top priority and we are working with City government to provide accurate information regarding the COVID-19 epidemic. We encourage you to get the latest updates and best practice guidelines from the Health Department. For the time being, we will continue planning activities to bring together our community and support local business. However, if you have a fever or flu like symptoms, chronic coughing or shortness of breath, please get immediate medical attention and refrain from coming to public events until you have been symptom-free for 48 hours. If you are sick, stay home and wear a face mask to protect the people around you. The City is putting together a relief program for small businesses affected by this crisis. For more information, visit our website or the NYC Department of Small Business Services.
