We want to share a brief update on the status of Spudnik Press Cooperative programming and events in light of the COVID-19 outbreak in Illinois. With the wellbeing of our staff and program attendees in mind, Spudnik Press Cooperative staff are actively discussing the next steps in case of a larger outbreak in the Chicago area.
We are monitoring and basing our decisions on their recommendations of the following resources. We encourage our community stay informed as well:
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- Chicago Department of Public Health
- World Health Organization
For now, all our classes and events will continue as planned, and we will send updates via email to our community if any plans change. We understand that our members, students, and guests have their own protocols and concerns regarding safety, and ask that if you do plan to cancel attendance, please do so as soon as possible.
We further ask you not to visit our studio if you are feeling ill, and have symptoms such as a fever, fatigue, or consistent cough. We also ask all visitors to rigorously wash their hands upon joining us for an event and taking other precautions such as coughing into one’s elbow and refraining from physical contact with fellow attendees.Lastly, we ask our community to practice kindness during this time, as these events are no excuse for xenophobia.
Thank you for your continued support of Spudnik Press Cooperative.
