May 17 update on studio reopening

As a community, we are all in this together and the main goal is to keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible. The whole community is practicing social distancing for 6′ and following the advice of a collection of authorities including the CDC and town, county, state, and government offices.

Many thanks to all the island entities for their continued efforts to supply the island with needed goods and services. Please be kind, thoughtful, respectful, and smart! When the weather gets warmer, we can all go for a walk, at arms-length, and sit on the beach, 6’ apart. We can do this!
