As an organization committed to serving our community, Atlanta History Center is taking this action to help slow the rate of infection and mitigate the risk that COVID-19 poses to Atlanta. The institution will reassess reopening all facilities at the beginning of April if judged to be responsible based on guidelines from public health officials. 

As of March 16th, the Souper Jenny and BRASH Coffee locations at Atlanta History Center remain open for business; however, they have both instituted a "to-go only" policy. They are monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily and are making well informed decisions based on CDC and health department information. For the most up-to-date information on Souper Jenny and BRASH Coffee, please follow their social media channels.
