As the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 has been named a pandemic, The Black Star Project is closely monitoring the news for updates in the best interest of our community. Restaurants have been shut down with carry-out/delivery options only. Stores have limited products. There's special hours for senior citizens. The list goes on. People have contacted us for additional resources in response to COVID-19.

Here at the Black Star Project, our priority is to serve our community. We would like to emphasize the importance of your health and safety. If you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, we are urging you to please stay home in respect to the CDC’s guidelines. Gatherings should be no more than 10 people. Let's do our part in flattening the curve and practice social distancing!
