Sugar City Update on Covid-19

Dear friends and colleagues,

Due to concern over the spread of the Covid-19 virus, Sugar City has taken the decision to suspend all events for the near future. As an all-ages safer space, we want to make sure that all people who enjoy our events can stay healthy and safe. We will continue to monitor national and local updates on its containment and its overall effect on our community.

We take this decision with a sad heart but also with a great amount of concern for the people affected by this situation. We urge everyone to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves from risks, which includes staying away from crowded areas and washing your hands regularly. And we hope that anyone who needs medical care, including testing and treatment, can receive it freely and as soon as they need it. Please also reach out to anyone you know who may be excessively disadvantaged from this situation, whether it is physically, financially or emotionally (but please take precaution when doing so).

When we feel that our community is no longer in danger by attending public events, we will announce our re-opening. Thank you all for appreciating our space and mission, and we hope you will be able to continue to patronize our events when it is reasonable to do so. Be well and look out for one another.
