Dear Valued Draeger's Patron,

Amid the ongoing concerns about the Coronavirus COVID-19, Draeger's is closely monitoring the latest reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and is taking a number of precautionary measures for the health and safety of our customers and employees.

As a safety precaution, we have decided to close our Cooking School for a minimum of two weeks, after which we will re-evaluate the public health situation.

Closure Begins March 14 and will last through March 28.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,
The Draeger Family
