Ukrainian Institute of America Closure Notice | COVID-19

Ukrainian Institute of America Closure Notice | COVID-19

All of us at the Ukrainian Institute of America hope that this note finds you and those close to you healthy and safe and as well as can be expected in light of the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus and its related illness, COVID-19.

The wellbeing of our members, guests, employees, community and neighborhood are of utmost importance to us. As a result, out of an abundance of caution consistent with the recommendations of local and state health officials as well as those of the CDC, we have made the decision to close our building and exhibits to the public immediately, with the hope of reopening sometime in April.  We will be actively monitoring the situation in the coming days and weeks and will keep all of you apprised of any major developments or changes.

In the interim, our staff members will be working from home and will continue to be available to answer your calls and emails and any questions you may have.
