We will still be taking everyone's temperature, and only members and those present for new member orientation will be allowed in the space. You will also still be required to wear a mask. We also will continue providing virtual options for Recovery Circles and virtual School for Recovery classes for those not ready to return to our space.

We are so excited to be welcoming members back into the cafe! While we have been able to remain connected virtually during this time, nothing can replace seeing your smiling faces and feeling your energy in our space. As we return to normal, there will be a few phases of reopening so that we are slowly and safely able to come back together. Please reference the graphic below for information on health and safety measures as well as hours of operation for this first phase of reopening. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out. We want to make sure everyone is comfortable as our space reopens. For the time being, there will be virtual options for our Recovery Circles and School for Recovery classes, so if you don't feel comfortable reentering the space just yet, you are still able to participate from home. We have missed you all and cannot wait to be reconnected once again!
One month ago, we made the difficult (but necessary) decision to temporarily close our doors due to COVID-19. However, ever since March 16th, we have felt the continued love and support from our amazing recovery community from. From 6+ feet away. our virtual supports are up and running with helpful technology made possible by Zoom. We are more than grateful for our staff team who has transitioned all services to a virtual format and continues to share their creativity through these new challenges. But most importantly, we are grateful to our Member Leaders, Core Volunteers, and MEMBERS for their patience, understanding and flexibility during this uncertain time!
Recovery Café Indy will still provide a to-go lunch on both Saturday and Sunday from 9AM-11AM. To ensure the safety and health of both our staff and members, we will be handing out face masks and hand sanitizer will each lunch. Though communication is minimal, we are always excited to see our members during this time!

As promised, we wanted to provide you with an update on our operations. Following the new recommendations of prohibiting groups of 10 or more from gathering, and after consulting with the Recovery Café Network, we will be following their lead which will mean we'll make the following changes:
- Closing our café space as a place for community gatherings.
- Shifting our Recovery Circles to a virtual circle with options to Zoom or call in.
- Providing sack meals to members for the first hour of our regular open hours
Our café managers will be calling all of our members to let them know of these changes today and tomorrow. We so appreciate your patience as we work through these decisions and changes in our operations.
Recovery Café Indy will continue to distribute to-go lunches for our members during these times:
Wednesday: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
