Over the course of the last week, Starr has continued to monitor and prepare for the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19). During this time, our team has been prepping for how the virus may impact our campus as well as the communities we serve. It is important to us to keep our staff, students, and community safe and healthy during this time. Additionally, as we consider hosting our Night of Starrs event, we want to ensure that we are not putting our supporters or those traveling to us at risk. In light of the recent recommendations regarding travel restrictions and the interim guidance we have received from the CDC regarding mass gatherings, we intend to limit visitors and potential exposure to COVID-19 by postponing the Night of Starrs until a later date. Although an outbreak has not occurred in our community, we believe this is a necessary preventative measure to limit the risk to our students on campus as well as to those who may be traveling to us.
At this time, we are planning to reschedule the event for this summer if the conditions surrounding the coronavirus are under control. Please know that we are deeply grateful for your support of the event and the mission of Starr Commonwealth.
