Following the coronavirus outbreak, Flushing Town Hall has been following guidance from city, state and federal agencies, especially the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, which is working closely with cultural institutions on public land. 

“We proactively increased and intensified our already thorough cleaning routines and will continue to do so,” said Ellen Kodadek, executive and artistic director of Flushing Town Hall. “We will continue to monitor the situation and will adapt our protocols as directed to Keep Flushing Town Hall as safe as possible for all who come through our doors. It’s important to us as an institution that we do our part, because we care about our community, and the future of our city.”

For those who have purchased a ticket to an event that has been postponed, Flushing Town Hall will honor that ticket when the event is rescheduled, or you may request a refund by contacting the box office. 

The organization is asking the public to consider converting the ticket to a tax-deductible donation, which would be greatly appreciated at this time. For updates visit flushingtownhall.org.
