Here are our latest updates on the COVID-19 crisis
People who do not show symptoms may still be able to spread COVID-19. A face covering can help prevent you from spreading COVID-19 to other people, so you should wear one whenever you leave the home.
A face covering can include anything that covers your nose and mouth, including dust masks, scarves and bandanas. Do not use health care worker masks, as those must be preserved for people in the health care system.
Even if you have a face covering, continue to stay home as much as possible and avoid close contact with other people.
The health and safety of our members and our staff is our priority. This is why we are carefully monitoring the situation! We are here to ensure you have a safe and healthy stay with us.
Depending on NYC regulations, we will work on providing cleaning services per request only. Therefore, please email us to coordinate AYA‘s cleaning services.
