Jefferson County Judge Jeff Branick and the Emergency Management Team of other county judges announced a stay-at-home order for the six counties including Orange, Jefferson, Hardin, Jasper, Newton and Tyler counties.

Stark Cultural Venues will be following these guidelines in order to keep the community safe and healthy. The stay-at-home order is to help reduce the spread of Covid-19. The Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation is monitoring the situation daily and will update as needed. Stark Cultural Venues is looking forward to opening its doors again to their wonderful and loyal patrons.
