The Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network (BARN) will be closed through Tuesday, March 31, according to an announcement from executive director Denise Dumouchel, posted to the nonprofit’s website.
“In an effort to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, BARN will be closed from March 13th at 4 p.m. through March 31,” according to the message.
“With school district closures and additional information about how to prevent spikes in cases, we believe it is our responsibility to the community to encourage people to stay home and to minimize their contacts outside their homes. We had hoped to stay open, providing a place for respite and creativity, but it has become clear that helping to prevent the ongoing spread of the novel coronavirus is the most important action we can take at this time.”
An updated announcement regarding the center’s April schedule is expected by Friday, March 27.
