(Last update: March 18, 2020 at 1 p.m.) It is ASC’s priority to ensure that the individuals and community partners we work with remain healthy and safe. In order to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and to exercise precautions aligned with current CDC recommendations, all in person Culture Blocks programs are suspended until further notice.
