Here at Ardinger House, we believe that public health and safety are top priorities. At this time, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has currently been detected in all 50 states including Idaho. In order to ensure the safety of our fellow Idahoans, we are acting out of an abundance of caution. IHC offices are closed, but staff members are working remotely. Since many Idahoans are proactively limiting social activities due to COVID-19, we have created a “Humanities in the Home” page on our website that offers suggestions for engaging and thoughtful humanities experiences in your own home. You can access the page HERE. To our grantees: If there are any public humanities events associated with any IHC programs that need to be rescheduled due to public health concerns, we are committed to working with you in making those arrangements. In according with the latest CDC recommendations, we are regretfully suspending any programming that will attract an audience of more than 50 people until May 1. Please be aware that any programming partner should feel empowered to make event decisions that meet the needs of its public audience(s). We ask all organizations to provide any/all updates regarding postponements and cancellations to IHC, so we are able to update our records and calendars as well as oversee scheduling efforts for make-up events. To our donors: We remain grateful for your continued support of IHC and of your fellow Idahoans. Due to limited staffing, there will be a delay in acknowledging donations but please know that we are working hard to acknowledge your support in a timely fashion. Please be aware that we are monitoring the situation carefully and will provide links to information and updates as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can access information about the state of Idaho’s recommendations in dealing with the COVID-19 HERE. Please reach out to us with any questions. We are here to help. We understand that this is an unusual and uneasy time. The study of the human experience has taught us that our spirit is strongest when we work together. Stay safe and look out for each other. Sincerely, Your friends at IHC.
